Giro 26

The Giro 26 was introduced in 2005 and became an instant recumbent bicycle classic. It’s the perfect solution for recumbent riders that love the dual 26″ recumbent format for commuting and hardcore touring, but want room for fatter tires and fenders not found on its roadie brethren. This bent is all about taking on life day to day; a great ride and an even greater value for 2010.

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 :).
