The top end line made by Invacare, they are great bikes. I like the new xlt 2000 it is real nice and price about 2 grand. A lot of my buddies ride the freedom riders which you can lean into corners, but I never cared for these bike personally, plus they run generally over 3 grand to 5 grand. Try www.Invacare.com (http://www.Invacare.com) then go to the handcycles for info. A friend of mine Scott Pelland, sell Handcycles and his site is www.bike-on.com (http://www.bike-on.com) he has the best prices and is great to deal with and would be willing to send you all the info you desire.

I used the Saratoga handcycle for 2 and 1/2 yrs. I like it very much. It's pretty helpful. That's the same model I used it in the rehab center before. It is manufactured by Saratoga Access & Fitness Inc.

I just got an EN200 stationery and cycle a couple of months ago. It is the older model for home use and is being phased out for a newer model. Without the table, it was about $550.

I've been using the Saratoga Cycle for about 12 years. It works great for quads: has adjustable headrest to lean on and different hand grip options. I placed mine on a small restuarant table I bought at a restuarant supply store.
