    Love this bike

    Hampton, IA

    What I Like: No pain in any body part!

    What I Dislike: Getting started going uphill

    I should have bought this bike years ago! I have a bad lower back. I am 6’6″ and 225 pounds and I can make this bike cruise very well. On the flats I can go 20 to 22 mph and going downhill I coast by riders who are pedaling! Just went on two days of RAGBRAI and was passing people going up hill. Very stable and took about 2 months of riding to get my “new” muscles in shape. My feet get a bit more numb than my diamond bike, especially when I push myself. However, I am a grinder and like high gears versus spinning. I no longer need to shake out my hands or roll my neck from the pain. My saddle bones never hurt. I did put a RANS seat on it (not a banana seat). The comfy bachetta seat has upper seat stays that point forward and dig into my shoulders but I figured that is because of my height. The RANS seat stays point backward and don’t dig into my shoulder blades. Overall, very very happy with this bike and couldn’t be happier! Way to go Bachetta!

    love my Corsa

    New Orleans, LA

    What I Like: comfort and performance

    What I Dislike: can't figure out how to wear my Camelbak.

    How I Ride: 75 to 100 miles/week

    I loved doing epic rides on my carbon diamond. I dismissed aches and pains in my wrists, neck, back, and in particular butt. Don’t they say, “no pain no gain”? I finally reached my limits. I’ve had my Corsa 700c for almost two years. It is amazingly comfortable, quick (very quick downhill), and a delight to ride on those 50+ mile rides. In a group ride I smile when I see folks shaking out their wrists, or standing up on their pedals to stretch. I don’t say anything, usually.

    GREAT BIKE!!

    Los Angeles, CA

    What I Like: Very Comfortable, Fun, Fast

    What I Dislike: Transporting it can be a challange

    How I Ride: I shoot for 75 to 100 mi a week

    I have been riding my Corsa 700c for 18 months. This is a great bike I got it after I crashed my custom made diamond frame. Took me 4 months to get competent riding it and 6 to get comfortable but I got on my diamond frame bike a few weeks ago and never again. This bike is very comfortable on long rides I have done several centuries on it and it is great. It is slower climbing (actually I think the bike could be faster up hill with a better rider) but way faster on flat and down hill so I can keep up with group rides just a different cadence. Bacchetta customer support is excellent. I called for a few accessories and parts to mount lights etc. great help and support! The bike is excellently engineered and very reliable. I have almost 4000 miles on it and no trouble at all. It is easily serviced by your local bike shop mechanic. The bike is longer then a diamond bike so fitting it in a car or SUV can be tricky but it rides OK on a trunk carrier with a few extra bungee cords.
