I’ll get back to building my truck sooner or later, for now, a slightly slower method of transportation (Priority Bicycles)
I’m making an attempt to get in shape before my daughter is old enough to run around, so I picked up a Priority Classic Plus Gotham Edition. I really liked it, though it really magnified just how out of shape I am. So I ordered a Classic Plus for Daisy. I actually managed to take some pictures of the assembly process this time around, so I figured I would share.
That’s how it came out of the box. The rear wheel, belt, and crank are all mounted to the frame already. So is the front fork, sans handlebars.
After a couple of minutes we had everything unwrapped and all the zip ties cut. We dropped the handlebars in too.
Dropped the seat in, mounted the front wheel, maybe 20 minutes after unboxing.
Screwed the pedals in and tightened stuff up. Elapsed time, about 25 minutes.
Aired up the tires and took her out for the first test ride. You can see my Gotham edition in the background. The time stamp on this picture is precisely 30 minutes after the first one, and we weren’t exactly working at a frenzied pace either. I also didn’t use anything other than the tools they included, though I will have to grab a Phillips head screwdriver to mount the reflectors. Overall, a really easy experience for what I feel is a really nice city bike. I’ll report back after we put some mileage on both of them (if it doesn’t kill me).
