SWB Recumbent bike
Description:  Giro means “tour” in Italian and that’s the mentality Bacchetta built into these recumbents: Tough bikes that handle extremely well and can be loaded up for the long haul or the hectic, everyday commute. In short, their Giro line is about dependability. If you want a “do all” bike, check out a Giro lineup and see why it’s the Gold Standard in short-wheelbase touring and commuting recumbents.
