« ALL BIKES Dualie
Two is the New One

The light turns green and you're off. By mid-block the singlespeeders and fixie riders are at max velocity. That’s when you kick your Dualie into overdrive and drop those posers. The Dualie is like a singlespeed on steroids. It marries the world’s most advanced carbon fiber belt drive with a two-speed kick shifter, stylishly integrated into a sleek steel frame dressed in Scooter blue. Back pedal half a turn to upshift or downshift. It’s that easy. The ethic is simplicity, the aesthetic thoroughly mod. Bicycling picked the Dualie as one of its favorite new city bikes. Yo, fixie riders, time to kick it up a notch! Two, after all, is the new one. After being sold out, the Dualie is AVAILABLE in shops now while supplies last.

I just test rode this bike at a Chicago LBS. All the praise is worthy. Really smooth and the kick shift isn’t too hard to get the hang of. The only thing keeping me from splurging is that it doesn’t have fender or rack mounts. I’m a commuter, and I’m not sure I could go back to wearing a backpack and/or getting soaked. Spot: Please put mounts on next year’s model and I will buy it.

Incedible. Steel; Belt Driven; 2-Speed Kickback! Keepin’ it old school! The most fun i’ve had on a bike in a long time. What else needs to be said.

The Dualie is one awesome bike. I have been wanting a single speed steel road bike for a while, but my commute is 1000′ of climbing if I take the non-hilly route and I like my knees intact. The gearing is perfect and the belt drive is virtually silent. I did have one small issue with the 2 speed hub, but the folks at Spot sent me a PDF that was super easy to follow and I fixed the problem. The design of the drop-out means you don’t have to worry about tensioning the belt when you have to pop the rear wheel out. Easy-peasy. I love this bike. Another thing to note–you will be asked a lot of questions, so be ready to gloat.

Broke a 5-year hiatus from bike commuting with this Dualie. After much research and many quickly answered Qs by Spot Brand, ordered sight unseen from Joe Bike, who had me rolling within the week. Low maintenance belt drive kick shift is the perfect single speed alternative for Portland’s weather and hills. Already planning to add another Spot Brand bike to the stable in future!
