Testimonials

I’m in the process of tricking-out my new Acme, but you all were very easy to work with, and MAN!, that Acme is one sexy bike! I’m extremely happy and proud that I can buy such a great bike locally.

//Neil C.

I received the Spot Acme three weeks ago and it was love at first sight. It arrives about 90% assembled, and for those of you who are not handy at all (like me), I found a YouTube video that walks you through the final assembly steps. 

//Rob Martin

Spot was extremly fast by responding all my questions in advance, shipping overseas went absolutely fast and easy. The bike is just awesome, I love it!

EDITORS' CHOICE | THE SPOT ACME HAS AN UPSCALE PARTS MENU AND A TASTE FOR SPEED

My first ride on the Spot Acme did not have me riding alongside traffic or waiting for red lights to turn. I wasn’t in a hurry, and I didn’t have a destination. I was simply cruising at a neighborhood pace, alone with my thoughts (how many years do I have left before my little boy values stupid talk with his buddies over quality time with his mom?). For this, the...

Worth the wait

After looking at the Acme for a few years on your website, I finally decided it was time to order one. The wait from phone call to delivery was about a week - it was the years of making up my mind that took so long. The Acme is everything I had hoped it would be. It handles great and the gearing is perfect. I previously had a Cannondale Bad Boy with belt drive and Alfine 8, and I was constantly running out of gears at the high end. The 11 speed on the Acme covers the full range. Braking is excellent and now that I have changed a few components, it is the bike I had lusted for all these years. I changed the saddle and replaced the tires with Continental GP 5000 and put on Oury grips. It now rides like a dream and that Shelby Blue color - absolutely gorgeous. Of my 5 current bikes, it is the only one my wife comments on every time she sees it.

Acme Spot Bike

Love this bike! It’s quiet, lightweight, seemingly well made. The integrated head and taillights are bright. And it looks really cool!

My new Acme is a blast!

I've had my Acme for about a week now. I use it as my commuter bike and it's super fun to ride. I originally purchased a 50cm frame based on Spot's size chart (I'm 5'6" and usually ride a 52 or so.) However I found the frame a bit small. Happily, I was able to exchange the initial bike for a 52, and the new one is perfect! With the addition of clipless pedals and a slight riser handlebar I'm all set. Thanks Spot! 😎

Very Nice Bike

This is a very fine bike. I received mine a couple of days ago and went for a 15 mile ride yesterday. The bike rides exceptionally well and all components work well together. The bike was perfectly shipped and damage free upon arrival. It was very easy to complete the setup of the bike. What is somewhat irritating (otherwise I would have given five stars) is that most, if not all, dynamo headlights will not work with standard hardware if you want to mount it on the top of the fork because the through bolt needs to be much longer than normal due to the thick carbon fiber fork on the Spot. Also, the through the tube wiring for the rear light is somewhat ridiculous. You need to actually remove the fork to wire that light because the wiring route runs through two of the bike's tubes. The wiring could simply have run through the top tube and that would have been easier and completely adequate. Anyway, other than those issues, I would highly recommend this bike.
