    US VISA: Validity Period v. Period of Stay

    First of all, let me applaud you for even contemplating such a trip. It would be difficult enough for an AB person. Just to clarify your US VISA status, the 10 year VISA's granted to you and your...

    Thanks Gordy - that makes sense.

    Lin - that may be the case, so the term would apply to the recumbents as well.

    Why is a handcycle called a Slider?

    Or does the term slider apply to other 'non-traditional' cycles (e.g. recumbents) as well?

    I was at a big event a few days ago (Bike the Bay 2012 in San Diego) with over 3000 riders, and I was...

    Yup, I can attest to the merits of that extra 12v. I did end up mounting a metal wire basket to the platform and the batteries in a gym bag -- makes it easy to load/unload the batteries as needed....

    Thanks Pat - I'd be interested to see how it mounts on the bottom bracket. Pictures would be great.

    I did end up ordering the new one that's slotted (the ones they use on their Force handcycles),...

    John - looks good. However, the problem I have is that there is just no room to bolt on a bashguard right next to the big chain ring. I even had a couple of local bike shops look at it and they told...

    Handcycle chainring guard??

    I just joined the ranks of Q-rings users. Along with completely new front and rear derailleurs, chain and shifters (all SRAM X9), I now have 44/33/23 chainrings on my existing 104/64 BCD spider. The...

    I'm an amputee with full core strength and I ride a lean-steer. I can't imagine using an offset precisely because torso movement would cause the handcycle to go on mini zig zags. Each turn of the...

    I have a Freedom Ryder LC-1. Lean steering is a very similar motion to slalom skiing -- the harder you lean, the harder it turns. The fun of it comes when you have a long winding road or even a...

    When an offset would be nice is when you're on a trainer, precisely because 1) no need for steering and 2) the extra energy you expend makes it a fantactic workout.

    Given a compact 50/34 crank and a 10-speed 11-32 cassette, wouldn't the 34-ring with the 32-cog on the cassette be just as efficient (if not more so) as a 3-ring setup for climbing hills? Not trying...

    It's a couple of years old - the only XT component is the rear derailleur; the others are the one-level-lower LX components - these are really the comonents that I want to switch out.

    Help me pimp my ride... Freedom Ryder LC-1

    I'm ready for an upgrade to the drivetrain. Hill climbing is top priority; speed is next.

    I currently have triple chainrings and a 9-speed cassette. I'm happy with my wheel and tire set up.

    I used to, with a modified 1896 Swedish Mauser. I just love that 6.5x55mm cartridge. I even wrote a reloading manual just for that cartridge for an FFL-licensed friend of mine.

    Thought about doing that, but I live on top of a hill, so the only way home would be to have PP push me up that hill. Wasn't sure what that would've done to my rim.

    I usually carry tubes and a pump, but not a folding tire... I need to add that.
