ACME Bicycle Co. based out of Brooklyn, New York came on board as a Moots Dealer in 2015. Since then they have hosted Moots social nights and demos from their shop.
In the short history of the shop they have quickly developed a following that reaches near and far. We posed a few questions to the two owners of the shop and this is what they would like you to know about them and the operation.
