Recumbent Bicycle newly re-built with BionX DV500 electric assist


Started out as a 2010 Bachetta giro 20 ATT which I purchased last year used for my son. I stripped it down to the frame and fork and completely re-built it. It is the standard size aluminum frame, not the large frame. He is 5’4” and it fits him and I am 5’10” and it fits me as well. I consider It’ll fit someone from 5’2” to 6’2” but you’ll be able to look it up on the Bachetta website for more info on sizing. I put a pair of Volae Wide handlebars on it, sram XO grip shifters, sram X9 rear derailure, truvative 9 speed triple crankset, TRP spyre dual piston mechanical disc brakes, avid speedial 7 brake levers, jagwire mountain pro compressionless cable housings, jagwire ripcord stretch proof stainless steel Teflon coated cables, new Bachetta re-curve seat, Schwalbe Durano Plus puncture resistant racing tires, Bachetta rear rack, sram hollow pin/plate super light chain, Bachetta brain box seat bag, Bachetta flip it stem, sunrace 11-36 mega range rear cassette. At the same time I did the rehab on the bike I also had the new BionX DV500 electric assist motor system installed. This is the highest quality, most reliable electric assist to be had. I set it up on this bike in addition to my tour easy so we could do longer rides together (He is 12). The system is top of the line, lets you use your entire gearing, has four levels of assist in addition to regenerative braking to re-charge the battery whilst you ride. My son lost interest so financial concerns have forced us to sell off most of our recumbent inventory! Shipping will be more expensive as a result of the added weight of the motor and special handling required for the battery. It’ll also likely wish to be shipped in two boxes.
