Ajax has been one of our most popular bikes for years. Now that Spot has lowered the price to $1699, they’re even more popular.
The majority of our Ajax customers have us rebuild the front wheel to include a dynamo hub, usually the excellent Shutter Precision PL-8, along with Busch & Mueller front and rear lights, full-coverage fenders, a rear rack, and PDW leather or cork grips. Together we call these options the Portlandistan package, and we apply it to pretty much every model we sell.

Shhhh. What was that? Ajax moves through the city with stealth and speed, an urban ninja in matte black. Wired bestowed the Ajax with a Gear of the Year award and called it their “favorite urban velocipede we tested this year;” lofty praise from the oracles of innovation. At the heart of this bike’s performance is its new-school drivetrain: an eight-speed Alfine internal hub and super-smooth belt drive that slices through the city like a shinobi in the night. A favorite of tech-heads and entrepreneurs from Palo Alto to Brooklyn, the Ajax delivers across the metrics that matter: performance, engineering and, with many of the same high-end features as our Acme, value. Alas, even urban ninjas must complete the mission on budget.
