Key West Here We Come!

Posted on Nov 26, 2008

It gets a little slow around here this time of year, so rather than sitting around waiting for the phone to ring, we’ve decided to take a little tour.  That’s right, we’re closing up shop starting Monday, December 8th, hopping on our touring bikes and heading south. Mark, John, Jeremy and myself will be taking a four day tour (about 280 miles, give [...]

Back to the Beginning: Our Fundamentals Revisited

Posted on Nov 18, 2008

Hard to believe, but Bacchetta has been in business building and selling recumbents for over seven years now.  In that time, we’ve added models, removed models and changed models.  Hell, I remember being in business for two years and having some recumbent pundits saying that the high racer was a fad and looked to be dying out.  We shrugged our shoulders and [...]

Texas to Florida and Back: Kent and Katy

Posted on Nov 14, 2008

Yesterday, we were lucky enough to get a visit from a father/daughter duo, who were making a trip many of us dream about on their Bacchetta recumbents.  You’d think making a trip that will probably total over 3400 miles would be the culmination of our interest; not so!  Read on. They’re making the trip on a Corsa (HED wheels no [...]

CA2.0 color?

Posted on Nov 6, 2008

Thanks for the feedback on the CA2.0 TEAM bike, every little bit helps. As much as we wish we could accommodate everyone’s ideas there is just no way a small company like BACCHETTA can do that, especially on the initial runs of this bike. What we will try to do is build a great bike, that’s a great value and, [...]

Seat Clamp- The Second Generation

Posted on Nov 5, 2008

I was already to go into a big production about this new product, but then decided that a picture is worth a thousand words. In that regard, I’ll just give you the abbreviated version (abbreviated for me at least). Recessed center bolts, allow you to pre-set the clamp at the top. Big deal your saying? Well, yeah, it is a [...]

Posted on Nov 4, 2008

Below is a rendering of a decal and color scheme we’re considering for the 2009 Team Bacchetta riders. Nothing is set in stone yet but I can tell you that John is pretty high on this look. Please note that the component package shown does not represent a team build or the final specifications for the stock CA2.0. Best regards, [...]

Rider Feedback: Dick Patterson

Posted on Nov 3, 2008

The new Giro 20 tt is amazing! It is light, fast, agile and comfortable. If I use an auto analogy, it is like a sports car. My old Porsche had the same qualities. My first Bacchetta was an Agio and the bike was great, but I wanted something more aggressive. I’m short and a high racer was not for me. [...]

Rider Feedback: Lamar Hinson, Winter Garden, FL

Posted on

Last year I set my goal to ride a bike 70 miles on my seventh birthday. After much research, I purchased a Bacchetta Bellandare for the task. What a great choice. With some family and friends in tow we set out from Inverness, Fl. to ride the Withlacoochee State Trail. It was a ride I will never forget. I made [...]
