Official Bacchetta CT 2.0 Forum!

This is your home for all things CT 2.0. And in the near future other Bacchetta trikes as well. So ask questions, get information, find out where to test ride, get feedback from current CT 2.0 riders and swap stories- let's have some fun!

Hey Mike
 
I just found out there is a friend of mine here in Sacramento who bought a CT2 before me, wish I had known sooner so I could have tried before I bought mine but I'm sure I'm going to love it...

Has anyone found the "ideal" water bladder to place under the seat?

I've been curious about trikes for some time but am closer to actually pulling the trigger on buying one of these. I'm not getting any younger and my doctor is telling me sooner would probably be better than later.
 
I do have one practical question about the trike, though, that I would need to consider: how do you transport one of these on a vehicle? I've got Thule roof bike racks and trailer hitch bike racks for my uprights. How or will these work with a trike? The trailer hitch option is preferable since I do use the Amtrak Auto Train to ferry myself back and forth to Florida and they allow trailer racks but not roof racks. How do you folks with trikes transport yours? I'd appreciate any advice/recommendations you might have. Thanks.

As with most trikes, the CT 2.0 will fit inside most vehicles that have a rear hatch. Just back it in rear wheel first. I test fit a CT 2.0 inside a Chevy Bolt.

I have a Hitch Rider that I use on the back of a Mazda 3 that works pretty well.  My bike sticks out a little on both sides, so you have to get use to that.  I have also used a Seasucker to carry on top of my car, that seems to work OK.  The hitch rack is much easier to use.

Thank you. Precisely what I was looking for. While I'm sure you can load a trike in an SUV, pick-up, station wagon, etc., it is not practical if you do not own one of those vehicles. It's also not practical if you are packing a car for a season in Florida and traveling via the Auto Train. Inside the vehicle is for luggage. Per Amtrak's rules, the trike would have to be attached to the vehicle via a trailer hitch. They don't allow rooftop mounts. I was curious to see if anyone had a trailer hitch option and, if so, what they were using. Thank you, again.

Does anyone know of any kind of luggage mounts developed to utilize the mounting holes on the trike — two on each side of the frame below the seat and two on each side of the frame near the axle (these have notches on the inside)?
