This is a new 2016 Spot Acme that has an Alfine 8-speed hub instead of an Alfine 11. We've marked it down radically as a closeout.
Features and Information
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.
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.
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.
