Josh sits down with Priority Bicycles CMO/co-founder Connor Swegle. Priority Bicycles was started to make biking simple and low maintenance with their belt drive bicycles. Connor and his fellow co-founder Dave Weiner have known each other since college, their paths staying relatively parallel, only diverging when their careers took them in different directions. Years went by, life happened, their jobs got super stressful, and they found themselves wanting to switch things up. After they both took the plunge to quit jobs they hated, Dave was absolutely fixated on getting back into the bike industry and that was all the inspiration Connor needed to join him. Together they made it a priority to spread the joy of getting on and riding bikes. But, how do you make something like that possible? After taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, they realized they just needed to take the work aspect out of biking. With that, they created a low maintenance bike that’s great for everyday riders, and set a reasonable price. This entire package hadn’t existed yet...so they made it and Priority Bicycles was born.
