I have a great job that allows me to cash in pto so I cashed in and will be buying my forever bike. The Priority 600. It ticks every box for me and my riding, except weight. LOL! I’m selling off my Raleigh Clubman and my trek commuter bike and will use this for everything except mtb riding. Can’t wait for it to get here!

Pics or it doesn't exist.

Sounds like the start of an adequate and reasonably reliable touring set-up--If it's Real.

:D
I tried but it wouldn’t post my pics. Said it had an extension that wasn’t recognized. Let me try again.

Thing should be bombproof which is good because I SUCK at maintaining bikes. Not crazy about having to finance a damn bike but should be worth it.

They also have a 600x mountainbike with the same drivetrain that is really nice looking.

I was also looking at their Apollo gravel bike that has the gates belt with an Alfine 11 hub. That’s a sweet bike too.

Ah what a great looking bike! It just has that look of “Where ya going? Shut up, doesn’t matter where. Let’s do this!”.
How do you like the belt drive? I hear a lot about it being not as snappy or that it feels spongy?

Not at all, bike moves and grooves just fine. I did buy new upgraded belt from the standard one that was on it....not that there was anything wrong with it. Really quiet and smooth.

The frame and seat bags are expandable and added the center rack bag for even more cargo area. The top tube bag has clear lid and velcro to hold fon with storage under it......just "needs" front panniers to complete the bikation setup....and me wearing a backpack,lol.
