Im loving this Spot single speed! If you like to pedal, I highly recommend it.
I enjoy pedaling up steep/technical single track and love riding steeper and more technical downs. I currently ride a 2020 170mm/160mm, high end enduro bike. It is a joy to ride. I ride almost everyday. Sometimes the enduro bike breaks and I need a second bike to back it up.
I have always wanted a single speed but never bought one. I researched them for a long time but I didn’t find a bike that excited me. When Spot announced the new carbon single speed, I liked the features I saw, spoke to Spot customer service and then preordered it. It will be my easy to maintain winter bike.
Some of the things I liked were the modern geo, carbon frame, well designed single speed dropouts, threaded bb, and belt drive. I put onyx racing hubs on it to make it silent and wider rims and tires to deal with my local terrain.
When it was delivered I was excited. The frame appears to me to be very thoughtfully designed and very high quality.
I’ve put in over 20,000 ft on it the first week. I’m loving this single speed Spot! It’s super fun! I highly recommend it. It climbs amazing. It’s a big workout. It brings new challenges to my old trails, as a single speed and a hardtail, both up and down the mountain. With the bigger tires I put on it descends well and climbing is even harder. I really like the different challenge it brings compared to my enduro bike.
