Pamela called me one day with a challenge. She wanted a Bella ATT but with a few specialty items. Generally, Bacchetta is a “simpler is better” company, but you reach a point where you’ve got to try new things. Remember I said that.
When things went further than I could handle, I handed over the challenge to Mark at Power On Cycling. The result is what you see above and for me, is what’s possible with this bike. And I have to say that she was also very patient as I was often slow in responding- she’s a real champ. So, here’s to Pamela for looking outside the box and maybe opening a few eyes along the way!
