COVID-19 Impact on returns

Due to the need to quarantine returns for 72 hours and reduced staffing levels as a result of social distancing requirements, it is currently taking longer than usual to process returns. Please allow 5 working days for your return to be processed and any exchanges or refunds to be arranged.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will endeavour to process returns as quickly as possible.

We want you to be delighted with your purchase and we realise that with many products, such as clothing and footwear, it is not always possible to be completely sure that the fit or other features of the product are exactly what you want, no matter how comprehensive the information is on the website.

For this reason we are pleased to offer a refund or exchange of your purchase (at your discretion), provided the item is returned unused, in its original condition with all tags and supporting information (such as packing notes) within 30 days of you receiving it. We will extend this period for International Customers where returned items are held up in transit. All refunds will exclude any Postage paid such as for faster UK deliveries or postage for overseas orders, except when the goods are faulty.

Christmas Refunds - Because of the nature of the Christmas season we extend our returns policy such that any goods bought during November and December may be returned by 10th January for a full refund. Christmas Refunds for International Customers - Any goods bought after November 1st may be returned by the end of January for a full refund.

A refund under these circumstances will be made without quibble, however it would be useful for us to know the reason for the return as this will assist our customer service in the future.

It is up to you to pay the postage to return any items to us. We recommend that you use a signed for service as we cannot accept any responsibility for parcels that go missing on their way back to us.

We recommend using the Royal Mail Recorded Delivery Service to return goods, this will ensure that there is proof of delivery and insures the goods whilst in transit. We are not responsible for losses during return transit.

Bridgtown Cycles
Unit 7 Lakeside Business Park
Walkmill Lane

Please be aware that some Post Offices have told customers that they can return items for free. This is incorrect and Royal Mail will not deliver the parcel resulting in a delay as it is returned to the sender.

Please remember to include instructions or a note so that we know who it’s from and if possible the reason for the return. If you are returning an item for exchange to another size etc. Remember to include your instructions in the parcel. We also recommend that if you are returning it using Royal Mail that you use the 'recorded delivery' service.

Refunds and exchanges

Refunds for goods will be made against the method of payment used to buy them - for example if you used a credit card to pay for your order we will refund your payment back to the same credit card.

Refunds will be made for the cost of the goods only - not any shipping charges. Therefore if you buy an item and pay for 'Next Working Day Delivery', the payment for 'Next Working Day Delivery' will not be refunded. Similarly for International customers the shipping charge associated with any order will not be refunded. However if an item is return for exchange - WE PAY for shipping the new item to you.

Who pays the return postage?

In the first instance you should pay the return postage to us - if the goods are being returned because they are faulty then we will re-imburse you for the return postage. If you are returning the goods because you don't want them (for any reason) then the return postage will not be re-imbursed.

If the 'faulty' item is above letterbox size then please contact the store first before paying for postage. It might be possible that we can get this cheaper than you and will then sort this on your behalf (as in organise a collection). If the item is NOT found faulty then you will be billed the cost of shipping both ways.

We recommend using a tracked delivery service to return goods, this will ensure that there is proof of delivery and insures the goods whilst in transit. We are not responsible for losses during return transit.


If you return an item to us for an exchange - perhaps to a different size or colour - you will pay to return the item to us, we will pay to send the new item out to you. This applies to UK and International orders.

2023 Basso Palta Campagnolo Ekar 1x13 Carbon Gravel Bike in Poseidon Green


Brand:Basso Bikes


New palta ii builds on expertise gained from basso's extremely successful first model. While others tried to define gravel, basso followed its own path. Born in racing and competitive by nature the palta saw such great success as it applied the fantastic handling and ride quality from its years of expertise building road frames and applied them to a more versatile platform that was able to take on anything and do so at speed. The proof that adventure can be competitive, that performance doesnât require a race number, that exploration is better with adrenaline and speedâ comes in the form of palta ii.

The word palta, which in italian dialect means "mud" or "dirt", has gained an international following and universal respect thanks to its unrivalled versatility. Gravel takes on several definitions but no matter how you choose to ride the palta delivers a fantastic riding experience as if it were specifically designed for your particular type of riding for any given day. Compliant enough to smooth out the roughest terrain yet remaining as reactive and efficient as our road specific frames the palta leaves even the most demanding cyclist wondering where this frame makes a compromise. Basso, since its inception, creates speed solutions for the road. The palta maintains that same speed over any terrain, in comfort and control. Versatility has a new name: palta.


**new frame & fork**

* new design for the frame and fork with optimized carbon lay-up. Engineered for extreme performance as well as comfort, plus increased resistance to impact
* the geometry of the fork blades offers precise handling as well as effective vibration dampening.
* increased tyre clearance of up to 45mm tyres with 700c wheels
* compatible with 1x or 2x road & gravel groupsets up to 52/36 chainrings

**new geometry**

* minor changes have been made to the extremely versatile original palta geometry:
* an increased sloping value to allow more seatpost exposure for more comfort
* a taller headtube for less spacers and more comfort. However, those seeking a more racing profile can still mount the stem flush with the headtube for a lower stack

**new design features**

* 2nd generation 3b clamp system for the seatpost - hidden and invisible on the frame, its anti-vibration, lightweight and super strong
* removable polymer shield for the downtube which can be fitted when riding on very rough gravel
* hidden bolts on the top tube to accommodate compatible bags
* 3 different bottle cage positions (2 on the downtube, 1 on the seat tube)
* a stem lock system is incorporated into the headset to eliminate the possibility of impact from the bars against the top tube, in the event of a fall or crash
* new adventure focused headunit mount (compatible with garmin and wahoo) for the palta (available to purchase separately)

**new paradigma integration system**

* compatibilty: basso wanted to create a solution for the complete integration of cables with all types of disc brake groupsets (1x/2x, electronic and mechanical)
* handling: many cables needing to run though a space space often results in slow and heavy steering. Basso, through the paradigma system has been able to integrate mechanical cable groups with the front derailleur, maintaining maximum steering lightness and precise handling.
* practiciality: the paradigma stem remains free from cables so that it can be removed at any time without the need to disconnect the cables. This makes it easier to maintain your bike, transport it in a travel case or bag, and change the length of your stem.

**basso carbon gravel handlebar**

included with the palta frameset, basso's carbon gravel bar has been developed from scratch, with a focus on road comfort. The diameter of the bar has been reduced to accommodate 4.5mm thick bar tape. A detailed study of ergonomics in all hand positions (tops to drops) has produced a bar with a 8 degree flare and a 122mm drop. It can be used with either integrated or semi-integrated cable routing and is available in 5 sizes.

**less tools**

the number of tools required to make any adjustments to the palta frame has been reduced for simplicity and to reduce the weight you need to carry on your next adventure. Thanks to the palta's innovative thru axles which contain tooling, you'll always have what you need right at hand.

**carbon fibre frame technology**

basso was among the first to research, develop and employ carbon in its frames. By not only building with carbon but researching new methods and techniques to continually improve performance, reliability and durability the basso frame is an advanced piece of technology that rivals anything else on the market and rides like only a basso can. The beauty of such technology is that the fantastic ride quality that derives from such engineering is permanent, making the basso frame perform equally after several seasons use as it did on the first day. Invest in basso composite technology, it'll pay dividends for your cycling future. All basso frames and forks are handmade in italy.
