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...

Awesome bike / great purchase experience

I recently purchased a Spot Acme after a couple of years of indecision over adding one more bike to my fleet. I was motivated by the recent sale pricing. It’s a great bike and very different from all my other road and mountain bikes. Fast and responsive. Fun to just jump on a ride around town. The bike is beautifully manufactured and finished. The sales process was easy and assembly and set up was a breeze. Customer service was very responsive around a few questions. Overall, I couldn’t be more satisfied.

More tweaking than I anticipated...

Overall, purchasing the Spot Acme has been a good experience. The bike was well packaged and the video assembly instructions were clear. The support via email was good. I think the bike was handled pretty roughly by the shipper though. There were holes in the box at the points of contact with the wheel locknuts, the rear wheel was out of alignment, and the front and rear disk brake pads were rubbing. There was also an annoying "tick-tick-tick" noise coming from the bottom bracket/cranks. This turned out to be due to the right crank hitting the belt guard. (The tolerance is very tight.) Bending the bottom of the belt guard in very slightly toward the frame took care of this problem. These adjustments weren't difficult to take care of but since I was new to disk brakes and the Alfine rear hub, I ended up visiting my bike shop to get some of this straightened out.

Speaking of the Shimano Alfine 11-speed hub, this was my one slight disappointment. I find that the rear wheel just doesn't spin as freely as it does with a normal cassette and derailleur. The difference is significant enough that every time I have the bike in the stand, I keep looking to see if the rear disk brake is still rubbing. It isn't. This bit of friction isn't the end of the world, but I wasn't counting on the trade-off. That said, the rear hub shifts well so long as you ease the pressure on the cranks. I like that you can downshift at a dead stop. Handy when you're trying to get your butt across a busy…

Acme for middle aged dude

Assembly was easy

Instructions were good

Acme rides smooth, quiet

Shifting is precise

Brakes are good but the rear tension needs minor adjustment to match front tension

Swapping out h.bar to a Spank, 1.5" rise

Great sales experience

Keep it going!

It wasn't love at first ride

When I first got my ACME, I felt that perhaps I had made a mistake. The gears made noise and slipped to the point that I considered returning it. I figured that I could keep it for a while longer to give the gearbox time to settle down a bit. After about three weeks I noticed that the two yellow dots were no longer aligned the way they were when I first got it. I turned the adjuster on the shifter and went out for my morning ride. Suddenly it was a new bike! No gear noise and no gear slipping. I am sooo glad I decided to try it for a while longer rather than sending it back right away. I don't think I've been this in love with a new bike since a was a kid.

Amazing commuter!

This is a fantastic ride! It has been described as ninja quiet and that is not hyperbole. If you have never ridden an internal hub drive their is a learning curve to changing rear flat tires. But you will get the hang of it.

Super smooth with enough gears to get you up monster hills and power through flat paths of your commute.
