Whether you're touring the country or the neighborhood, Bacchetta's Giro 20 recumbent bicycle lets you do it all with ease and in total comfort. The stable chromoly frame and slightly stretched wheelbase soak up road bumps while the low 20-inch front wheel makes starting and stopping easy. Plus, its 27-speed SRAM drivetrain has plenty of gears for taming the hills and the Avid brakes deliver sure stopping power. And, when you're ready to fly, the aerodynamic Giro 20 recumbent bike is up for serious speed and fun!
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 Re-Curve seat features a padded foam seat for total comfort and a curved mesh back for ventilation and support.

I bought this bike in 2015 after realizing that my back problems wouldn't allow me to ride for more than 45 minutes on my Specialized hybrid bike, which I loved. At Basically Bicycles, the owner had me ride around the park near the shop before I made my decision, so we could be sure this was the bike for me. It didn't take long to learn to balance on start-offs and to ride, but there is a knack to it that must be learned. The bike is comfortable, easy to pedal, and turns well. Being higher up off the ground always makes me feel like I'm more visible if I'm riding on roads in my neighborhood. The one big difference is that you can't stand up on the pedals when going uphill, so you need to learn to use your gears and strengthen your legs for the push. But if you're a recreational rider, this is not a big problem. Two years ago I did a 65-mile ride and was delighted to find that my time and average speed weren't very different from that of the same distance Imhad ridden on my Specialized bike. You do have to get a special bike rack for your car for it, but that's well worth it. There's plenty of room on the handle bars for a cell phone holder and Bluetooth speaker (gotta have music for a ride!). Water bottle holders fit on either side of the seat. This is a great bike for anyone who thought their riding days were over because of back problems. I'd buy this bike again, and highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a recumbent.
