More about the episode

This podcast episode was originally recorded on Oct 8, 2018. We’ve cleaned up the audio a bit and hope that you enjoy the episode with Priority Bicycles CMO/co-founder Connor Swegle talking about his journey in building Priority Bicycles.

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.

Listed by Outside Magazine as one of their top gear picks, Roofnest makes hard shell rooftop tents that allow you to camp anywhere you can park.

Whether you’re into overlanding or easy weekend getaways, a Roofnest will turn any vehicle into a comfy bedroom-on-wheels.

All tents attach right to your vehicle’s roof rack and come with a built-in foam mattress. And once you have it in place, it takes less than a minute to set up or stow away. Which means you’ll be able to get outside faster and spend more time doing the things you love.


Be sure to check out the Falcon, Roofnest’s most popular tent, which is only 6 and a half inches tall when closed and is perfect if you want to carry additional gear or your favorite toys with the optional set of crossbars that mount to the top of the tent.

Or take a look at the Condor XL, one of Roofnest’s newest models, which is a hardshell foldout tent perfectly suited for up to 4 adults.

Check out these great walkaround videos Roofnest has of the Falcon and Condor.
