    Hi everyone,

    One week ago I bought a Bacchetta Strada from my local bike shop, and unfortunately found recumbent bicycles weren't for me. This bike has less than 15 miles on it and is in perfect condition. It is a large, so it will fit all riders from 5'10'' to 6'6'' (information from the Bacchetta website). Check out the specifications of the Strada at Bacchetta's website , http://www.xeyed.com . I didn't make any modifications to it, so the bike has its stock components. It is also on ebay right now at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3692090637 . I am willing to negotiate the price with interested riders. Please contact me at [email protected], if you are interested in the Strada. Thank you!!

    -Sean

    Hey qsroft, a week and fifteen miles isn't a long experiment. Out of curiosity, how much did you ride and what did you ride before the Bacchetta?
    What was the deal breaker for you with the bike that made you want to sell it?
    Peace

    It was a decision between uprights and recumbents. This was my first recumbent. I really liked the Strada while test riding it, but when I took it out for an hour at home, it just wasn't for me. I wanted to get back on my upright despite the comfort issue. So, for me personally, I guess I have more fun on uprights. It was an expensive experiment, but hopefully I can find someone out there looking for a deal on a brand new Strada. It was a quick decision, but I figured it would be a waste to have it sitting around.

    Thank you for your reply qsroft. I asked these questions because I have been looking at recumbents and DFs myself.
    Sometimes I want to pull the trigger and just order a bent I want, but for the amount of money it cost and not having the ability to test ride it make me leery. I'm leaning towards getting a light DF(a Trek 5000 CF) and holding off on the recumbent until I can ride one.
    Good luck to you on your sale. Those who know and like recumbents will probably be glad to get a deal on a good recumbent. Peace

    I've often said that you need a better reason to get a recumbent other than just curiosity. The reason being, they are SO different from uprights that some degree of dedication is required to learn them. Even getting one for the potential speed benefit isn't enough, because the speed doesn't happen overnight. Fifteen miles? I think that's a record!
