RAAM 2010

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
Since RAAM is starting today we just wanted to make everyone aware that there are several RAAM records of interest up for grabs this year. The 4-person and Men’s solo records for stock recumbent are the ones we’ll be keeping an eye on but a new record for solo women, stock recumbent, could also be established this year. It’s all Read More

TEAM BACCHETTA ATTEND TEXAS HELL WEEK

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
Hell Week starts on the same weekend of the Texas Hill Country 600km. Last year I spent a couple days of recovery with my crew that was staying on for Hell Week in Fredericksburg TX. I did a little eighty mile recovery spin with them one day and thought this is kind of cool. For 2010 my crew from last Read More

Cafe speed compared to Giro-20?

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
This was a question asked on our forum and we thought we’d respond here so we could share some pictures. The Giro and the Café have about the same speed potential because they share the same wheel set and their seat to bottom bracket differential are virtually the same. Overall speed for both bikes can be improved by upgrading the Read More

I thought he just needs to b.s. Mike for a minute, then Mike was saying Scott was wanting to talk to me. Scott went on to tell me about Read More

Bellandare, Bella ATT and the LWB recumbent design

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
At the end of 2007, we introduced the Bellandare as an entry level replacement for our Café and Agio models. The Bellandare was our first low bottom bracket Long Wheel Base (LWB) design and we’ve been very pleased with the reception it’s received. Not surprisingly people have been comparing the Bellandare with other LWB bikes, both past and present, and Read More

Texas Hill Country 600km

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
  It was doubtful that I was going to do this race after bailing out on Larry Graham as a team rider but I still needed to go to Plano TX for a dealer clinic at Plano Cycling. When visiting with Steve Petty  (Corsa SS rider and Tejas 500 team rider) about coming to town I mention something about the Read More
