CROWDFUNDING & PRIORITY BICYCLES FEATURED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Wall Street Journal published a story on Crowdfunding & the marketing and press teams that make cordwfunding campaigns successful. The Priority Team was honored to be featured as well as the Akimbo Communications & Vann Alexandra teams that were integral to our last Kickstarter campaign for the Priority Coast.

David Weiner, founder of Priority Bicycles, which recently completed its third Kickstarter campaign, said he received several offers a day from public-relations or social-media services... He hired a public relations firm,Akimbo Communications, that specializes in the outdoor sports industry, which came via referrals from friends.

In his latest campaign, he also brought on a crowdfunding consulting firm, Vann Alexandra, whose founder he met at a Kickstarter event. The firm helped put his beach bikes in the hands of a dozen “influencers” with large social media followings.

The Priority EIGHT was featured in PopSugar's Best Fitness Products of April 2016.  Susie May, their Content Director for Fitness writes:

"April showers require double fenders if you're planning to cycle. Priority Cycles sent me The Priority Eight ($799), its new commuter bike, to test out, and I can say it is one sweet ride. With an aluminum frame, the bike is surprisingly light. Plus, it has a grease-free drivetrain, meaning the chain is rubber rather than metal, so no need to worry about staining your cuffs on a greasy chain. With eight gears and easy shifting, I can handle the hills of the SF Bay Area, and if I need to stand to make a climb, the wide pedals provide an ample platform to support my effort. And the seat is comfy too. The bike's components are all top notch, from disc brakes to internal gears (to protect the machinery from the grime of the city). Tooling around this bike is so much fun; if you use it for commuting, you might end up skipping the office altogether to explore the city streets."

THE PRIORITY COAST ON GEAR JUNKIE

THE PRIORITY COAST ON GEAR JUNKIE

Check out Gear Junkie's review of the Priority Coast:

"No chain, rust-resistant parts, and tires made to roll on sand distinguish this beach-ready ride.

Launched on Kickstarter, the Coast is geared toward leisurely rides involving warm ocean breezes, sea spray, and a fair amount of sand. The Coast is designed to withstand the salty air and gritty beach sand that can ruin a steel cruiser."

THE COAST ON BIKE RUMOR

THE COAST ON BIKE RUMOR

"If there’s any bike brand that epitomizes ingenious simplicity, it’s Priority Bicycles."  Check out Bike Rumor's review of the Coast:

"If there’s any bike brand that epitomizes ingenious simplicity, it’s Priority Bicycles. Since their start in 2014 we’ve checked out a few of their models including the Classic and Eight commuters and the Start kid’s bike. Each bike seems to strike that perfect balance of everything you need and nothing you don’t. That thinking definitely carries into The Coast, Priority’s new model designed specifically for cruising the beach.

There are plenty of bikes out there that call themselves beach cruisers, but this one’s got more to offer than a big cushy saddle and swoopy bars. The Coast was cleverly outfitted to handle sand and the salty sea breeze while remaining virtually maintenance free. Its aluminum frame and fork won’t rust, its sealed bearings resist the elements and a Gates belt drive system makes it ride smoother and quieter than chain-driven bikes.

Best of all, Priority’s ingenuity doesn’t come with a premium price. Their Kickstarter campaign is live, offering The Coast to early buyers for just $349…"

THE PRIORITY COAST ON TECHNOBUFFALO

THE PRIORITY COAST ON TECHNOBUFFALO

Jacob from TechnoBuffalo stopped by our NYC workshop last week as we launched our Kickstarter to report back to the TechnoBuffalo team.  Check out his review of The Priority Coast:

"In a way, the Coast is the culmination of everything Priority has been working towards since it first launched. Weiner originally set out to build the ultimate urban bike, offering a simple but sleek design that’s as low-maintenance as possible. When he learned that people were using it on the beach, he decided to target that market directly.

The Coast features a new drive belt that’s the best the company has ever offered, using a special groove design that pretty much ensures it won’t slip off the gear. It also includes the same puncture resistant tires featured in previous bikes, which significantly lower the odds that you’ll get a flat.

The fact that Priority is able to pack all that technology into a single bike and offer it at a reasonable price is even more impressive. It doesn’t hurt that the final product also looks stunning and rides like a dream. The Coast is available for as little as $369 on Kickstarter, with a planned retail price of $450 once it launches this summer."

THE PRIORITY COAST ON MEN'S JOURNAL

THE PRIORITY COAST ON MEN'S JOURNAL

The new Priority Coast was featured today on Men's Journal:

"The new Priority Coast offers a number of simple and solid design innovations that kept us asking the same question as we tested the bike for three months: Why hasn't anyone else done this? Made by an independent, New York-based company and launched through a Kickstarter campaign, it's a beach cruiser actually designed for the beach. Its durable design is still light enough for anyone to hoist over their shoulder to climb a few stairs. It's powered by a belt drive that doesn't need grease and keeps the ride silky smooth, and includes a frame that won't rust and components that don't corrode. Finally, a better beach cruiser is here."
