Bought a Bacchetta Giro 20 recumbent in 2005. It made bicycling fun again! Did many long rides but never a century. Got a Catbike Musashi in 2011. Rode it at Calvin's Challenge 12 Hour Race in 2012 and did 185 miles. Took a Bacchetta Corsa for a test ride in July 2012. Loved it. Bought the Corsa and sold the Musashi. Did many century rides on the Corsa. In December 2014 got my dream bike, a Bacchetta Carbon Aero 2 from Vite Bikes in Venice Florida. Was amazed when I did the 2015 Black Bear Century with a 22.4 mph average and elapsed time of 4:28:38. Did my third Calvin's Challenge 12 Hour Race in 2016 and rode 212 miles. Now I routinely do centuries in less than 5 hours. Can't say enough good things about the Carbon Aero 2! Whatever the distance this bike goes fast and with complete comfort. No back aches, wrist pain, neck pain, or saddle sores. If you love to ride but wonder if there is a faster, more efficient, and less painful way to do it, you need to try a recumbent! And of course I highly recommend Bacchetta.
