Pick the recumbent size that matches your X-Seam Measurement. To measure your X-Seam, sit flat on the floor with your back against the wall and measure from the wall to the bottom of your feet. Point your toes straight up, so that your feet are perpendicular to the floor. Be sure your back is against the wall and your legs are flat on the floor. If you're close to either end of the X-Seam range, just ask us and we'll help you choose the proper size.
Bacchetta measures seat height from the front edge of the seat to the ground with the seat centered in the middle of its adjustable range. Shorter riders may prefer a lower seat height to make starting and stopping easier.
Bacchetta's EuroMesh seat is contoured for total support and comfort plus it has a mesh back for ventilation.

Bacchetta: \BA-KET-TA\ noun, 1: Italian for stick; 2: a blazingly fast recumbent bicycle!
Arriving feet-first on the recumbent scene in 2001, Bacchetta has quickly made a name for themselves with their line of fast, fun racing and touring recumbent bicycles. Their innovative frame design started a revolution in the industry and has become the benchmark by which racing recumbents are measured.

Their mono-tube designs strike a perfect balance between comfort and efficiency while maintaining impressive lightness. And they match each of their fantastic frames with an equally fine set of components to produce the ultimate 'bents.
Not satisfied with just building great bikes, Bacchetta continues working to bring the recumbent gospel to the rest of the cycling world, supporting nationwide cycling organizations and attending local cycling events across the USA. Bacchetta also competes in the annual ultracycle event Race Across America, speedily smashing records and stereotypes while spreading smiles as they go.
