You can have a near silent ride on the Acme, getting you up and down any hill with ease. The strong belt drive guarantees showing up to work without chain grease on your pant leg!
It would be nice if the Acme could shed a few pounds, it’s a little on the heavy side. It would make dragging it up stairs or biking up hills a little easier.
Commuting or just cruising around the city, this bike is made for someone who wants to get around in style so long as you have hefty bike storage at home and work because you don’t want to let this budget-bruising bike out of your sight.
The Acme is stylin’; it definitely stands out in a crowd, maybe a bit too much! The internal gears and belt drive system give it a ride quality that’s a cut above the rest. The upright riding position, combined with the more aggressive geometry, makes the bike surprisingly nimble. An awesome ride as long as you’re not heaving it on top of cars or hauling it up flights of stairs very often.
