    Emmett, My injury level is lower than yours -- T4 complete -- I'm able to use the Peristeen independently. The Peristeen's "magic" is coupled with...

    I didn't say I've been using it the longest, just the most. As Bill Maher says, "I can't prove it, I just know that it's true."

    I'll take that bet. I've been using the Peristeen since 2011 having first purchased it from a supplier in Australia, which is pre-FDA approval. And I...

    Some insurance covers it. Mine doesn't but I find them on eBay for not too much. The manufacturer, Coloplast, won't allow distributors to sell them...

    The Peristeen is essentially an enema. Its utility is that the rectal catheter has an inflatable cuff that allows you to retain the water as you fill...

    I'm putting this in a private message, because I don't want to hijack Old's tire q's. You said a presta has less moving parts than a schrader valve. I thought they had the same. Really the presta seems to have more. With its little screw on top.
    Then unless you carry a tire pump with you it, you can't inflate a presta at gas station pumps, without the adapter. And presta's are so fragile, if you push on the spokes like a lot of quads you can snap them off.
    "Professional" cycle riders use presta's because they ride sew ups on very narrow rims, which can't fit a schrader. They are also obsessed with weight and probably believe a presta is lighter. Hell they shave their legs cause it might slow them down.
    I am well aware I could use new rims so I could put more air in my tires, but I need new jeans and food, so the new rims will have to wait.
