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...

Perfect City Bike

The Acme by Spot, with a few upgrades, is probably the perfect city bike! I changed the tires out for Urban 35s from Continental (I find that 70PSI is the sweet spot for these tires), mounted full coverage metal fenders and water bottle cage by PDW, added a custom wedge frame bag from Rogue Panda, added ESI Extra Chunky grips, and installed front and rear lights wired to the dynamo hub.

The bike has clever mounting points for the fenders, a comfy stock saddle, and excellent braking power in variable conditions. Removing the rear wheel, while challenging the first few times, is easy enough to get used to. Somehow the proper belt tension is maintained through the removal and remounting process which is like some kind of cool magic trick!

I'm 5'10" (32" inseam) and ordered the 55cm in Shelby Blue. The Acme is light, looks rad and fits me well.

I didn't like the stock grips and the stock pedals are terribly slippery with all my foot wear when the soles are dry or wet. Also, because of the length and position of the brake and shifter cables a handlebar basket doesn't work, hence the frame bag.

Overall, I love the speed, comfort, efficiency and grab and go ease of this bike! Get one, it's well worth it.

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.

Bought for wife but really for me.

This is more like a silent rocket ship than a bike. So fast, nimble, and smooth.
