If you are in the South East Queensland area, great, we can help with assembly and adjustment if you like.
Bacchetta bikes are shipped in a combination of two boxes. One has the frame, fork, and a small parts box, and the other contains the wheels, seat, handle bar assembly. The handle bar setup is fully assembled with shifters, levers, cables, and wrapped with handle bar tape.
Performer bikes come in one box with a smaller parts box enclosed. There is minimal pre-assembly.
We recommend taking the bike to a bike shop for assembly, however it is not beyond the capability of a competent home mechanic.
Congratulations – a frame kit is a great way to build your special bike, even better if you have a selection of parts already waiting for a project. Be aware though, building a recumbent from a frame set is likely to be more challenging than assembling a regular bike.
There are some things that just need more thought. It’s worth it though, the effort to make it “just so” is rewarding in the end. Here is an example of what to expect when buying a “frame only” setup (the CHR is one of the harder builds around).
