Bacchetta's Giro A20 recumbent bike boasts a great-handling, super-efficient and light aluminum frame with a slightly stretched wheelbase so it climbs and accelerates like a champ, corners with ease and also smooths the roughest roads. It sports a low 20-inch front wheel for easier stopping and starting, too. This svelte roadster is equipped with a 27-speed SRAM/FSA drivetrain for flawless shifting and Avid disc brakes for awesome stopping power in all riding conditions. Plus, you'll love the support and comfort of Bacchetta's EuroMesh seat. Call to order.
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.

I suffered from neck pain for years while riding a conventional bike, but since I started riding my Giro A20 all problems with my neck have disappeared. This is a very nimble, solid riding bike and the disc brakes provide excellent stopping power. I added a Maxxis Hookworm 20 x 1.95 tire to the front and a Maxxis Overdrive 26 x 1.75 on the rear, and now ride this little goat on lots of steep, winding gravel roads on my daily commute. And last week I rode 500+ miles with Cycle Adirondacks, including an 8-mile climb up Whiteface Mountain (NY) with an average grade of 8.5 percent. This bike is a blast to ride, does great against headwinds, and is fast and stable. I'd recommend the Giro A20 to anyone who's looking for a fun and fast bike.
I suffered from neck pain for years while riding a conventional bicycle, but now that I'm riding my Giro A20 the pain has completely disappeared. The Giro A20 with disc brakes is absolutely a blast to ride, it's very comfortable and nimble, and with an aftermarket Maxxis Hookworm 20 x 1.95" tire mounted on it I often ride steep and winding gravel roads. Last week I road 500+ miles with Cycle Adirondacks including an 8-mile climb up Whiteface Mountain (NY), which has an average grade of 8.5 percent, and aside from tired muscles I had no aches or pains anywhere. The Giro is a very solid bike that's plenty fast on the flats and downhill, and I'd recommend this bike to anyone who's ready for a really enjoyable and comfortable ride.
