Bacchetta Rider Spotlight: Charles Morrison

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin2
  I have always been a casual bike rider, but in the last five years or so I have used bicycling as a way to keep my weight under control and break the monotony of running.  Inexpensive mountain bikes were my initial choice and I enjoyed trail riding combined with bike paths.  I started increasing my distances and riding the Read More

Crosscountry ride!

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
Mark Swanson sent this over earlier today and asked me to post it. So here it is! Dave, my neighbor, is riding his Bacchetta Giro-26 from Florida to California.

When I was a kid, my bike was the main mode of transportation; we went everywhere on our bikes.  Fast forward forty years and some of my co-workers ride every Saturday.  Now, I thought at one time I could have been a competitive bike rider, I just never took that road. So, I thought I would take them up on Read More

BIKE IN THE BOX

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin2
Get a lot of people asking about this, so here you go.  What I’ve done is packed up a C/A 2.0 in a Crateworks Tandem box.  This is being sent to upper New England and then flying over to Denmark.  I’m new to Crateworks and this was my virgin voyage, but it worked out great for this bike and Crateworks has Read More

Measuring the Bacchetta Aero Bar for Length

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin2
There’s been a ton of discussions/confusion over this one.  This *should* help to clear things up a bit.  I’ll keep this short and sweet. Measuring technique: I placed the bar down flat on a uhm…flat surface.  This is virtually the same as it is installed on your bike.  I am measuring from the edge of the bar, just to the Read More

Just look at that picture.  I’m not the kind of person who will ever be seen wearing one of those “Life is Good” smiley faced stick guy t-shirts, but something about the above photo just makes me feel all gushy inside.  Could be because we helped a person with a little direction.  Could be satisfaction taken in building a good product. Could be Read More
