Hard to imagine such a plan could work out.

Not wide enough. Where's the 47 mm model for bikes like the Kona Dew, the Raleigh Redux, and the Priority 600?

I'll try a set, but I sure do wish that 45NRTH had also released a 650b x 47 mm version.

They did release a 27.5 x 2.1 Kahva. I'll be checking a set of those as well. Maybe I can finesse them in somehow.

Just curious, will 26 x 1.75 tubes fit the 650B x 47 tires?

I wouldn't be afraid to stretch them to fit if they were all I had laying around. I've put 26er tubes onto 29er wheels and had it work. Normally I prefer something sized to match the wheel and the tire.

For anyone who has the Priority 600 - how annoying is the loud sound from the rear wheel when coasting?

Adding a layer of grease to the inside of the hub where the pawls live will quiet things down a bit.

Yup - priority actually wrote me back (I had emailed them) with a video showing how to do just that. Thanks!

I just ordered mine. I am so looking forward to riding it. It will be my commuter/touring/gravel bike.

I plan to ride the Trans Virginia Trail with it.

The Priority 600 that I ordered arrived yesterday (Labor Day). I was so excited that I started the assembly right away, but after installing the handlebars, front wheel, and seat, I noticed that the bicycle was big and high when I straddled it. They shipped a Large (21"), which is the wrong size. I specifically ordered a Medium (19"). Needless to say, I had to disassemble and repack the bike into the box that it came in. I was so disappointed.

One thing I can say about Priority Bicycles, their customer service is excellent. I texted and emailed them about the situation and they responded the same day, which I was not expecting since it was Labor Day.

So, they are shipping a replacement. Let's hope it is the correct size.

love the tout terrain, steel frame, pinion gearbox, built in rack. i asked priority if they would consider making a steel frame-it would be very popular

Any idea how it compares from an efficiency standpoint to a chain and sprocket drivetrain or from a Nexus drive? I have their bike with the Nexus which is an awesome, simple, versatile setup but it is noticeably less efficient than a bike with a regular chain and sprocket drivetrain.

I have had several bikes with Alfine hubs and the Pinion seems similar in efficiency (which is a tiny little bit less than a conventional derailleur drive). In extremely cold weather below 15F that factor may increase a little bit in my experience, although I suppose a thinner lubricant in the IGH could resolve.

BTW, have you folks tried doing anything to make the Priority 600 a bit, well, less sluggish? I've been using it as a commuter for a bit after a summer of working-from-home and riding a road bike recreationally and now I find the Priority a bore to ride, sadly. It's heavy, unresponsive, and just feels like a lumbering tank. Of course, that's kinda what it's meant to be, but I've been considering removing the fenders & rack and replacing with more lightweight alternatives, and possibly replacing the wheels with 700c and thinner tires. Drop bars would be an even nicer thing to add, but that would look a bit franken-monster with the twist shifter on it Anyway, curious for your thoughts on all this and if you have examples. The other alternative is to sell the Priority and buy a gravel bike -- Checkpoint or Diverge, for example.

Just so you know you can also purchase Priority bicycles from Costco if you have a membership. I haven't seen them in stores just on the website. https://www.costco.com/priority-bicy...100662675.html Ryan Van Duzer also has used his priority bike on long treks across the country.


I hope this helps you to get your dream bike.
