    New 'bent

    Thought I would share some photos of the new ride

    Great to see your pictures, ndbentrider.

    It'd probably be easier, though, if you just posted all your pics into one thread rather than starting a new thread for each photo.

    I'll post your other pics here for you.

    Ohhhh pretty, Bacchetta builds a nice clean frame. And you have it built up with some real nice go fast parts. So what do you think of the bike so far?

    Finest looking welds on a bent I've seen. And Chris King headset, too! Sweet! But, whoa, that water bottle mount! How the heck do you reach for a sip while riding!

    A new company in Colorado called FastBack Designs makes recumbent-specific seat bags and hydration packs, including models that fit RANS, Bacchetta, and M5 seats. See RANS/Bacchetta seat items here:

    Yes I have a camel back - Lobo (?)need a real seat bag for the commute - The water bottle mounts are for various battery locations for the lights - I have since switched to the front of the bike. Some of the seat bags I have seen provide space for hydration systems. I am still working on getting used to frogs up front - intersections on my commute are a bit of a challenge for the clipless pedal - I am getting there though - my avg. speed is definitely increasing. So far so good - looking forward to getting on some long rides and some hill work to see how it feels.
