2016 Spot Acme

Spot has mastered belt-drive bikes like no one else, and the Acme is one

It’s no secret that the hunched-over geometry of road bikes alienates many cyclists. Enter the Acme, a city bike that hums along at road speeds while also allowing you to actually enjoy the ride. Think of it as a Mercedes on two wheels. The Acme is lighter and faster than most city bikes, which means you get to work on time with ease. It features the most advanced, reliable—and clean--drivetrain on the market: a sealed 11 speed shifter mated to a smooth and strong belt drive. Let’s face it: chains and derailleurs are a greasy time suck, and time is money for cyclists on the go. And like a high-performance European sedan, the frame’s gently swooping curves convey understated elegance. Acme means “highest,” and this bike is the apex of modern urban riding: a finely tuned mix of precision engineering, style, innovation and speed. Rediscover the joy of cycling. And all of our street bikes have hard mounts for racks, fenders and a kickstand.

Features and Information

  • Gates CenterTrack: Next generation Carbon Drive System. Unique, super-strong, carbon-reinforced polyurethane system that requires no lube and provides a nearly silent ride. CenterTrack is stronger, lighter, more compact, and better at shedding debris than the prior Gates systems. As with all Spot bikes, you don't need to tension the belt when you put the wheel in. Shimano Alfine 11-Speed Internally Geared Hub: Super-high quality with simple shifting and low maintenance providing a 409% gear range. Spot Custom 7005 Aluminum: Proprietary, shaped, butted and tapered frame tubes designed for optimum strength, comfort, and durability. Lightweight aluminum tubing with precise tubing configurations for each frame size, results in a smooth and stable ride. Advanced performance styling of seat stays, top tube and down tube, in conjunction with finely tuned geometry deliver an astonishingly nimble ride in the urban environment. Spot Custom Carbon Fork: Our newly designed all carbon fork rides smooth, yet is stronger and lighter that its predecessor. Steering is precise with the tapered carbon fiber steerer tube. Perhaps the highest performing street fork on the market. Urban RocketSled Geometry: Cruise with your head up and pass on the left. Dropout Compatibility: Newly designed Wagyu 2 Slider Dropouts allow belt-driven or chain-driven configurations, and painless wheel removal with no need to re-tension the belt. Hydration Friendly: Water bottle mounts on down tube and seat tube. Fender and Rack Mounts: Newly designed frame and fork accommodate full fenders and racks, for urban versatility and utility.
