THE PRIORITY CLASSIC REVIEW ON THE ROBB REPORT
The Priority Classic was reviewed by The Robb Report:
Break a bike down to its barest elements and you get the Priority Classic (which puts the most basic priorities first). Frame, two wheels, handlebars, pedals, and that’s it. A belt drive (similar to but stronger than a car’s fan belt) could go for 3,000 miles without needing to be replaced or even maintained (there’s no grease involved). The three-speed Shimano internal hub is, as the name implies, enclosed and takes care of gearing.
After a wildly successful Kickstarter run that appealed to people just looking for a carefree pedal, the bike caught on with resorts looking for reliable bikes for guests and other organizations looking for campus wheels (NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center has a fleet). Then the hashtag-I’m-on-a-boat set took notice of the bike’s resistance to rust, and boat owners began purchasing them to ride around at shore stops. Stainless-steel spokes (not always found on your basic country/city rider) and all-aluminum components combined with the belt drive don’t just make maintenance nearly nonexistent, but also ensure near imperviousness to the elements."
