Great Commuter Bike!
I have the open geometry Acme and it’s great. I was able to put it together myself due to great videos provided by Spot Brand. Very well made and easy to maintain. It’s incredibly easy to remove both wheels and reinstall them should you flat. Gotta tell you that once you go belt drive, you don’t want to go back! It’s very quiet and you’ll scare some folks who can’t hear you coming.
The only downsides—which are minor—are weight disc brakes, and wheels. The weight (due to the Alfine internal hub) can be an issue if you live in a 4th floor walkup apt. with no elevator. Personally, I’m not a fan of disc brakes because of the rub and adjustment. The wheels are adequate, but it would be nice if Spot Brand had more wheel choices. Again, these are merely my opinions.
I made a great choice and really love this bike! I’ve changed out the stock tires, pedals, seat and added fenders and ergon grips.
