For many people who are interested in what recumbents have to offer, speed is not the determining factor. Beginners are generally concerned with how easy to ride, safe, and affordable a recumbent bicycle is. The Cafe is the perfect option for many new bent riders. Designed from the ground up for comfort, ease of use and afordability, the Cafe gives a new rider the ability to go out and ride, day after day. Like all other Bacchetta Recumbent Bicycles, the Cafe is crafted to the highest standards and incorporates the same custom frame tubing as our higher end bikes.

A note about our archived bikes - we have provided all of the sizing information and specs we have below. We provide general sizing information here, but in many cases it won't be applicable to older bikes. And before you call to ask us, we do not keep a secret database in the office that we aren't sharing :).
