The Bacchetta Giro is remarkable in its simplicity and performance.
Giro bikes have a stretched mesh seat-back and foam seat-pan for upright comfort. The rear stays clamp solidly (no grenade pins).
Wheel configuration is the main difference between the Giro 20 and the Giro 26. The Giro 20 has a small front wheel that helps with the step-over situation and reduces heel-strike.
For people who prefer the higher gyroscopic stability of a large front wheel, the Giro 26 is available.
Components are a high spec of twist-grip style shifters and associated derailleurs and rim brakes. However, the bike is disc-compatible with front and rear disc hubs and associated frame tabs. One very nice upgrade is to just put a disc brake on the front wheel.
Standard equipment includes a glide-flex steering tiller that lets you position the handlebar at exactly the right position for your body position and leg-dimensions.
Adjustability is by moving the seat along the frame and clamping it down, and different frame sizes accommodate a wide range of people.
