Priority Bicycles Classic Review


Shannon, our fabulous female tester, takes gear testing to a new level for women. When not at work or school, she is most likely training for a marathon, climbing one of Colorado’s tallest peaks, riding her road bike, or skiing down a mountain slope. Like many women, Shannon gets cold easily, therefore, we try to test the best all weather gear to help her stay warm and dry during all day outdoor pursuits. In the warmer months, Shannon enjoys exploring the Colorado backcountry with her friends and dogs and attempts to escape for as many trail runs as her schedule allows. Shannon is a great women’s tester because she gives readers true insight into how a product may perform for an active woman.

    Thank you for your in-depth review! I’m curious if you have done any winter riding with this bike? I am considering getting one for commuting in Boulder, but worry how the belt system will perform in snow. Also, how does the coaster brake compare to a standard rim brake in terms of stopping power, do you feel safe going down steep hills and riding on roads with it?

    I received the bike in July and therefore have not had the chance to ride the bike in the snow/muck. I will definitely update you on how the Priority Classic handles when the flurries start to fly, which sadly could be in the next 6 weeks. As for the coaster brakes, they respond nicely on moderate hill grades but I would not trust them on the steeps, such as Lee Hill or Flagstaff. The front brake is $29.99 and is well worth the additional cost. When coming to a stop I use a combination of the two on the hills.
