It may sound like an obvious statement, but we folks at Spot make bikes. It’s been our sole focus from day one. No shortcuts, no marketing tricks, no redefining what “cool” means – just building bikes that turn bike riders into bike addicts, and racers into winners.
When it comes to designing, engineering and building our bikes, we’ve been at the forefront of the industry long enough to know the difference between a real innovation and a trendy fad. It’s been true right from the start, when we gave single-speed mountain bikes the attention and technology they deserved, creating a whole new riding experience. Then, as one of the first to build a 29er, we took the opportunity to complement the wheel radius with a dialed-in geometry that turned its potential on paper into a reality on the trail. And our partnership with Gates has added yet another dimension to the industry. The development of the carbon belt drive has introduced a level of strength and efficiency that would never have been possible in traditional drive systems.
In truth, all that innovation is fine and good, but our real goal is to make sure that once you’re in the saddle, you completely forget that any of it exists, and just enjoy the ride. After all, the best stories are about biking, not about bikes.
If you haven't already, mark your calendar for the Brews for Bikes event being held at Mountain Toad Brewery on June 7th! There will be no shortage of beer, high-fives, and some great prizes including a custom Spot Brand Wazee that was inspired by World Bicycle Relief's Buffalo Bike.
It's bike to work week, and we've partnered with World Bicycle Relief to get more bikes under the feet of those who need them. For every Spot Brand bike we sell we will donate a Buffalo Bike to WBR. More info at: http://www.jensonusa.com/WBR-Bike-Week
