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...

Just plain fun and cool!

Perfect commuter and all around fun bike for all experience levels. Too many unique aspects of this bike to mention but the internal hub shifting and rubber chain drive put this bike in a class all it’s own. Great gift for the spouse who needs to get to work or just cruise the neighborhood with the kids!

Great bike, mediocre value when buying internationally

The Spot website makes no mention of FedEx anywhere, but they are what is used, at least when shipping to Canada. The FedEx experience is pretty bad: in my case it appears the driver did not want to climb the stairs to my front door with the bike, so instead of ringing the doorbell and asking for help, they opted to just leave and mark me down as not being home, even though I'd stayed home from work all day waiting anxiously. I had to call them and plead with them to actually ring the doorbell next time. Spot does mention international shipments are subject to duties and taxes, and I was able to easily calculate an estimate of what those taxes would be when shipping to Canada. What they do not tell you is that when FedEx finally mails you an invoice for those taxes a month after you've received your bike, they tack on $90 CAD in ancillary fees. Even though these are fixed charges (you can find them documented on the FedEx website as "Clearance Entry Fee" and "Advancement fee") that they must know about ahead of time, they are inexplicably not included in the $200 USD shipping cost you pay at the time of ordering.

After these shipping costs, taxes (12%), exchange rates (~1.33x USD to CAD in October 2020), and conversion fees (2.5% for my bank), the total cost of the bike ended up being $3,395 CAD for me.

I bought the Spot Acme because I wanted a flat bar, Gates drive bike that didn't sacrifice too much in terms of efficiency. Gates drive is the killer feature for me as I…

A fun gravel bike

This is my first gravel bike (I mostly ride road bikes) and it is a lot of fun. With some 38mm tires I don't worry about sliding on gravel roads. The belt drive is great for low maintenance and easy shifting but the gear hub and bottom bracket had quite a bit of resistance. It may need some time to break in I hope.

Very good.

I’ve been riding bikes on a regular basis since 1980 starting with a road bike and switched to mountain biking in 1985. I’ve had four different mountain bikes since and have never bought a bike I didn’t road test first, so buying one online was different. Since I am now 73, I have given up mountain biking and didn’t want another road bike. I did some research and the Acme got great reviews, so I took a chance and I’m glad I did. I’ve had the bike about a month and have put a little over 250 miles on it with no issues. Everyone that sees the bike is intrigued by the belt dive and geared hub.
