FOR SALE: Beautiful black ?stealth? Bacchetta Giro 26 ? Oxford, UK.
Posted by: mlkp (IP Logged)

Purchased new just over a year ago, this is a late 2008 / early 2009 spec model, custom powder-coated in matt black by the excellent Windridge Coatings in Kent, prior to being assembled by Bacchetta specialists, CycleCentric, in Cambridge.

I?m reluctantly selling as although I love riding it, my cycling is more usually off-road mountain biking than on-road touring now. As such, the Giro has been looking rather left out in the corner unused for a while, so it?s time for it to move on to a good home.

A Bacchetta frame in this colour is completely unique ? there is only one sporting my preferred matt black ?stealth mode? (as far as I know), so this is a rare opportunity for a Bacchetta/high-racer fan to own a genuine one-off.

This is a medium sized frame, which is suitable for riders with an x-seam measurement of between 38 and 47 inches (96.5 and 119.4 cm). You are welcome to test-ride at my location in north Oxford.

> Ridden less than 500 miles (appears in virtually unused condition)
> Fitted with the excellent Bacchetta Euromesh seat
> Brakes upgraded to Avid BB7 Mechanical Discs
> Bacchetta mudguard set included (not shown)
> Bacchetta ?Brainbox? bag (black) included (not shown)
> Bacchetta user manual and brochure
> Registered with Datatag and Bike Register (with transponder fitted)
> Registered Keeper certificate/log book will be transferred to new owner
> Bell on left handlebar included ? Ping-Ping!
> High quality aluminium/glass anti-vibration rear view mirror included

?1295

Please note, as I?m intending to purchase another recumbent some day, the Terracycle accessory mount and Shimano SPDs (shown in pics) are NOT included.

I also have a hardly used Bacchetta Euromesh sized Ventisit seat-pad (the thicker ?Comfort? option) which cost 80 Euros new. I was intending to sell this separately, although I won?t try and do so until the bike has sold, so you?re welcome to purchase it with the bike if you want to.

Hi waxer

The mirror is made by a motorbike accessories manufacturer called Motrax. I highly recommend them as they don't stick out too far and if you bash them by mistake they never brake! Great product. Here's a link: [www.motrax.co.uk]

Best wishes

Hi mlkp,

Don't suppose I could twist your arm for a close-up picture of the mirror and a few words extolling its virtues for next issue?

A quick google suggests they're available from loads of mainly motorbike shops online, at around ?30ish (for a pair I think)...

Cheers!

Peter

Hi Peter

Yes absolutely! I'll send something through to you soon. And yes you're right in thinking that the ?30-?35 price tag is for a pair.

Best wishes
Mya.
