    Thanks Curt! Yeah, Stage III, metastatic melanoma. I do not recommend it . I'm "cancer free" for the last two years -- whatever that means.

    Hi curt I put my chair and bike for sale on the equipment page and it is no longer their could u tell me where it went and maybe u could have a thread for stuff that is being sold thanks
  4. Hi, Curt. Have you ever saw a posting on the site where it says if there is foramenal narrowing that it just means the nerve root and would that contribute to B & B if it's the nerve roots only? Thanks for your help. I don't know if when it's nerve roots does it cause B & B or doe si tneed to compress the cord? Thanks, Ragu

    I will but the problem is my struggle is continuous the last 2 years, as soon as I finish treatment a new bacteria takes stranglehold.
  8. I haven' theard from you. Don't know what I did. I think my question was about reflexes, if they are always hyper/hypo in the upper if there is no surgery? If the lesion goes away and comes off the cord, will the reflexes go to normal. Thanks for your help. Back to the neuro again. I wish I would hear from you.
  9. Yes Jill it is fairly hard to move around at least for me being a t4 paraplegic. It is very comfortable though and once I'm in the right position I can sleep there all night. It is a fairly hot mattress though as the foam soaks up your body heat and throws it back at you. If I had it to do again I might look into the new Jacuzzi gel mattresses, they claim those are not hot, not really sure how comfortable they are though.

    Hi Curt -- I saw the photos of your truck & boat -- can't make it out... you racing 2.4m?
  17. Hi Cory. They are not cheap @$3600 but well worth it. The Top End Force is around the same price. The FRH is a much better general rider than the Force imo and the Force is a better racing handcycle. Definately no regrets in buying it, infact I have two of them, one in Florida and the other R.I, one is Orange and the other Yellow. Mike at FR will spray it whatever color you want. I like having the shifter and the brake on the right grip and the disc brake is great. The stock wheels are good with decent tires. You should really consider this handcycle. I know people who have got cheap and bought handcycles (wont say any handcycle names) under 2 grand thinking it was a deal and are generally sorry later. Check out all the handcycle posts on the equipment forums. You could always save money and get a top end XLT used or something just not as good a handcycle as the FRH or the Force. The other Testimonial by Joe G is my best friend, he has a FRH also and really likes it.

    Curt! So out of the blue I decided I want to buy a hand cycle, I checked out the FRH-1 and I read your testimonial! I had a few questions, like how much did it cost and do you have any regrets with it? This would be my first hand cycle if I bought it. Thanks!

  25. Hey there Dado; Velocity makes a pretty good solid rim and the phil woods are pretty awesome too. I dont think you'd gain all that much by making a change and its a lot of $$$, might be best off just sticking with what you have unless your a real serious racer. I think I go just a hair faster with my Spinergies on in the rear and the carbon fiber 404 up front, but to tell you the truth I like the feel and quietness of the stock mavics better.

    Hi Curt! I got a Top End Force and I really liked it! I´m thinking about upgrading my velocity rims/phil wood hubs to Spinergy, Hed or another aero rim. What can you say about your spinergies?

    Hi stud, how ya been?
  40. How'd it go with the bagpipe playing PT who loved animals? Second/third/fourth dates? I'm a little out of the loop after being gone.

    Sorry your house fell through for Venice. If you decide to go there are places for rent all over the place. I think the economy has left much of the vacay market wide open for anyone looking last minute and you might even be able to negotiate a rate.

    I saw a guy riding his handcycle in Seaside as we rolled back this way on Turkey Day and thought about you.

    So fill me in on what's been happening with you.
  41. Wow, I just looked at your profile knowhill, you sound a lot like me. I'm a avid Nascar fan too. Your about the same level as me too. Do you ride Handcycles? Where do you live. I've never seen you on the site before, are you new here?
  42. Yes, good point Knowhill. I actually have a multizone temp monitor that I've built a prototype of and fully tested and its ready for the market. I should probabley put that on the site. I think I'm going to ask about $20.00 more for that unit. It can do 2 rooms or 1 room and outdoors or just 1 room and repeat the announcement.

    Good luck on your product. I just had one though. Do you have a second product in the works yet? I only say this in the fact why not give a choice. I know my buying habits are better determined when I have a choice and why not the choice is between two of your products?
  44. Wow, snow, unreal. Guess its worse there than here. It rained most of the day and is around 50 out. When are you going to Florida? Sounds like the sooner your there the better with that kind of weather. I still dont know if I'm even going to Florida this winter. I had a house reserved in Venice Florida but it just fell through the other day, its a friend of friend and I had a feeling it was not going to work out so no big surprise.
  45. Get this Curtis ... We're having December temps here and it snowed at the cabin this a.m. That's 15-20 minutes from me. What's up with this weather? :-o
