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 Acme’s flat bar and endurance-like geometry put me in a more aggressive position than an upright city bike (like the Civia Lowry Step-Thru). Still, I found myself taking it as slow and casual as I do on those types of bikes, and never felt that the Acme wanted—or needed—to go faster. And yet, on a mixed-pace ride (this time, with my friend Jimmy), the Acme quickly zipped along busy streets, let me comfortably spin up a switchback path, jumped without hesitation at every green light, and even let me slow down long enough to witness the absolute best head of feathered white hair on a guy who clearly worshipped Whitesnake during its heyday (and his). If an initial investment of $2,000 for a city bike is hard to swallow, consider this. You could save yourself a few hundred bucks and get something that looks and rides like a dream now, but doesn’t have the components to keep up with your daily miles and abuse. Or you could get a bike from Spot, a family-owned company based in Golden, Colorado, that has deep roots in cycling design, engineering, and innovation. The Acme is just one result of this commitment. It’s a solid, unassuming bike that doesn’t compromise quality and comfort by skimping on, well, anything.

THE BEST ROAD BIKES 2020

Part road bike, part mountain bike, and smooth-sailing all day long—the Spot Acme brings the best of each to your daily commute. An aluminum frame paired with a carbon fiber fork help make the Acme feel quick and lively, while its upright riding position allows you to slow down and enjoy the cruise. You’ll have more time to enjoy the ride too, because with a belt drive system there is no need to spend time cleaning and oiling the chain. The belt drive has other advantages as well: no more greasy stains on clothing from the chain, and it’s silent. You never realize how noisy a chain can be until there isn’t one. The internally geared rear hub has a wide range, with low gearing for the steepest hills and higher options for sustained speed when the terrain is flat. The relatively smooth, wide tires roll easily, absorb imperfections in the road, and inspire spirited blasts of speed. And, when it comes time to slow down, the Acme is equipped with powerful hydraulic disc brakes.

AN UNDERSTATED CITY BIKE WITH UPSCALE PARTS AND SURPRISING PERFORMANCE

Quick-handling like a road bike and confidence-inspiring like a mountain bike, the Spot Acme is a willing accomplice on any ride. It’s capable on a spin through the neighborhood or zipping along with traffic on your commute. Spot uses first-rate features and components from well-known brands throughout. Notably, the Gates belt drive gets paired with an 11-speed internally geared rear hub, which gives you an extremely quiet, smooth-running, and virtually maintenance-free drivetrain—plus no more greasy marks on your pants or leg. And once you get going, powerful hydraulic disc brakes help control your speed in any weather.

perfect commuter (and around-town) bike!

I already own a Spot Ryve 115 for XC racing, but needed a new commuter bike to get to the office. After 10+ years of heavy use, my old commuter bike was rusted, and the drivetrain had taken a beating from the weather. I decided that I needed a more weather-proof commuter bike, and the Acme was the perfect solution! The belt drive is smooth, and the Alfine geared hub provides an ample and reliable range of gearing. The bike is both comfortable and nimble, and handles my ~13mi MT commute with ease. I'd highly recommend for anyone looking for a commuter, light bikepacker, or just a good bike to ride around town.

So far, so good

I've had the bike for a couple of weeks, and put ~ 150 miles on it. I was replacing a very similar hybrid Giant Seek 0, with an 8spd Nexus hub. I was used to smooth, but this takes it to the next level. Loving the belt drive! Planning on putting a carbon post and bar on it, and maybe a different front wheel with no dynamo hub to save a little weight, but otherwise a solid bike, right out of the box. Only thing I would have like to see is support for slightly wider tires.

Acme

The bike is well made and has a sexy silhouette. Customer service at Spot is excellent, really excellent. I am primarily a commuter and gravel rider, using the Acme in my everyday ride to work and back. Two weeks in, riding it everyday, and the bike is super quiet and rides nicely. Steering is sharp. Not 100% sold on the internal hub thing, as it seems to miss/not shift as well as a standard derailer. The 32c tires are too narrow, and I will be upgrading to 35c or 38c. Still getting used to the more road geometry, not a big fan of the flat bar. Added a Tubus rear rack and Arkel pannier bag. Probably will upgrade the bar, pedals, and saddle to make it really mine.

Spot Acme

I received my new Acme 2 days after ordering: awesome.

20 -30 minutes to assemble once out of the box. The installed bar grips are the only items I'm not too happy with. New Ergon grips on the way.

Very happy with this bike & the Spot experience.

Silent assassin

I’d already made a purchase from spot in the shape of the mayhem130 - a dream of a dream ride, an epic performer on all fronts on all trails. I knew I would be in for a treat with the acme and I was not disappointed - in fact, I was blown away way more than I would have expected from a commuter bike with gravel riding potential. It’s shifts like sh1t of a shovel - it’s smooth and solid and nimble and responsive. Just a pure joy. The belt drive makes me feel like every pedal stroke is transferred into pure power. Love it
