Based out of Golden, Colorado, Spot Brand Bikes has earned themselves a dedicated following of passionate riders, especially in their home state. Spot moved to Golden so that they could be closer to trails. This allows the brand to not only test their products easily but also live the mountain bike lifestyle that is important. They proudly claim that each of their employees bag 250,000 of elevation per year!
The Lumpkin family bought Spot Brand after selling Avid, a brake company they founded in 1991 and have been focused on building the best bikes they can ever since. They were deep in the belt-driven bicycle world when those were making the rounds and while those are still offered in Spot’s line up, they’ve expanded in the dual suspension market.
