Bacchetta CA3.0 Basso Frameset
The world’s most accomplished carbon recumbent road bike. The updated CA 3.0 frames incorporate the Adroit dropout system to easily switch from wheels with 130mm to 135mm rear axles, disc brake option and integrated idler post. Viewed by most as the optimal combination of speed, comfort and handling, the CA 3.0 is the “Gold Standard” of performance recumbents. The Basso version uses a 20" front wheel, making for easier starts and stops and a less extreme seat position.
