    Best recumbent ever!


    What I Like: Frame, Double J bar, 1x11 set

    What I Dislike: nothing

    I have had a Pelso Brevet since march of 2018. Before brevet I had a Performer Goblet high racer.
    My first impression was that I felt brevet much lighter. I could start and accelerate easilier.
    The Double J bar is a fantastic development. The bent is well controlled, even is your speed is low. You can adjust a lot of things on the bar. That’s why it was a lot of time to fit it perfectly. But after one week trial, the bike was very comfortable. Now I usually use a 24 degrees seat angle. It is very comfortable. When I participated a 70.3 triathlon race, I used 20 degrees seat angle. It is a bit faster, but not so comfortable. I can reach 36 km/h average speed in the 90 km long bike route. I wouldn’t use less seat angle, only on absolutely flat routes.
    Brevet is very light (less than 10 kgs) that’s why It is very fast in uphill. I can ride together with my road racers friends.
    I use the 1×11 sram eagle set (chainring with 50 teeth, casette: 11-46) and I love it! It’s very easy to use, fast and accurate.
    To put it in a nutshell, I absolutely satisfied with the Pelso Brevet!

A word about the Bacchetta line of performance recumbents- Bellwether. Merriam-Webster’s definition is as follows: One that takes the lead or initiative. When we introduced our Strada and Aero models in 2001, we changed the perception of recumbents. When we introduced the aluminum Corsa in 2005, we shredded the misconception that high performance equals high cost. We weren’t the first to introduce the dual big wheel format, we were the company who made it work! And while our designs have spawned an entire market of Bacchetta wanna-be’s, none of them match the track record of Bacchetta performance recumbents through real world riding. We go to the races. We have the most renowned recumbent racing team on the planet in Team Bacchetta. While others companies spend a lot of time talking about how fast their bikes are, we’re out there proving it. If you want real world performance and are ready to walk the walk, you start at the top. You start with Bacchetta, the bellwether of performance recumbents!
