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...

Spot Acme

I have a couple hundred miles in now and I love this bike. Looks and feels great. Easy to assemble. I was initially concerned about the size since I am tall, but the fit is good. The narrow wheelbase and handle bars make it easy maneuver. It's equally at home on rough city streets and smoother bike paths.

This is a great bike!

This bike replaces a 1985 mountain bike that has served me well for all these years. But the friction gears and gravitation to more riding on pavement prompted me to look for something better suited. The Spot Acme with the internal gears and belt drive appealed to me so I ordered one. Ordering online was easy and even with the disruption of corona-virus shutdowns the order was processed and shipped within a couple days. The bike was very well packaged and arrived with no damage. Spot provides a very useful You Tube video on how the bike is packed in the box and another video describing assembly of the handlebars, front wheel, the seat and the pedals. It takes less than thirty minutes to complete. Once assembled it was time to put air in the tires and go for a ride. What a treat! Everything works flawlessly. The geometry is very street bike responsive and the disc brakes really effective, so after years of the mountain bike and only a couple weeks now with the Acme I am still working towards comfortable. Located in the foothills of the Appalachians I was a little concerned about the range of the eleven speed gearbox, but that has not been an issue as I have yet to need the lowest gear. When in the highest gear this is a fast bike. I have contacted Spot by email a couple times with questions. Both times I received prompt and helpful response. There are not many reviews of the bike online but the few that I found describe the bike in very positive terms. They are…

A dream machine

This is my second Spot Acme. I bought the first 11 years ago - and it still runs beautifully, too. I bought this as a wanted a few technical upgrades. I can not recommend the Spot Acme enough for urban riders. My rides are usually 5-20 miles, longest rides about 35-40 miles.

Replacement Commuter: Rides Smooth

I've had this bike over the winter before reviewing to be sure I'd worked it in well - I mean gotten the first scratches in the paint :)

First point, the top tube, for me is a bit high to swing my leg over easily - I'm 5'4" with a 28 inseam and might have done better with the other version simply for that reason.

The bike is smooth and responsive - but since my other bike is a Brompton, there was some adjustment to be made as they are quite different bikes. I've added a rack and bags - and even with these fully loaded, it runs well and the tires handle light snow w/o issue.

Over time, as expected, the belt drive needed tightened twice and that was very easy as was pulling the rear wheel for the first flat.

Bike gear range is excellent and shifts reliably on hills.

It does add a fair bit to the cost when you add the front and rear lights and rack - I used a collar to attach to the seat post as the rack I had didn't fit the bike. I also upgraded the grips.

Looking forward to some light gravel riding with this bike and possibly adding a Red Shift Stem and/or seat post depending upon how things go.

Overall pleased with the ride. Plan to run it into the ground and see just how well the internal drive and belt system hold up.
