An aluminum frame and fenders are a good start for an all-weather, low maintenance commuter bike. Add in the Nuvinci internally geared hub and a Gates Belt Drive, and you’ve got the perfect platform for easy trips to work, school or the store.
The Priority Cycles Continuum gives you all that with a brushed finish that’s impervious to scratches, so it’s even easy to lock up. The Nuvinci hubs provides a similar range to most modern drivetrains, but with infinite adjustment between the low and high range, so you can pretty much dial the gear ratio to suit your preferred cadence no matter the terrain. Perhaps the best part is the price – it’s just $899. Add another $135 and you’ll get an bonus set of studded winter tires and 1000-lumen light package.
