2011 Spot Brand Acme
The Acme takes the idea of urban riding to the next level of speed, performance and handling. We’ve nailed an enthusiast’s wish list of design attributes by purpose-building the aluminum frame and carbon fork, starting with a blank sheet of paper. The result is a ride engineered to be fast, agile and stable. Premium wide-range gearing, delivered by a Shimano Alfine 11-sp internal hub, is driven by a totally silent, clean and maintenance-free Gates Carbon Drive CenterTrack belt and pulleys. Hydraulic brakes ensure confident stopping in all weather conditions. Rack and fender capability are built into the frame and fork, unlike other bikes where the basics of utility are often afterthoughts. Ingenious adjustable dropouts facilitate easy wheel removal and belt tension adjustment. No need to wear special clothes or shoes; the pedals are grippy and flat and our custom chainguard keeps your pant legs out of the action. We give you the option of kitting out the bike with stylish PDW racks and SKS fenders. Durable, puncture-resistant tires deliver 360º of visibility, thanks to the bright 3M reflective strip around the sidewalls. Our size range is one of the most inclusive, fitting people from 4’ 10” to 6’ 6” with six standard frame configurations and a smaller step-through design.
