    If a used CarbonBike were the same price as a new RX, I'd probably lean toward the CarbonBike. They are both fast. They both have some flex. However, it seems that there have been quite a few more...

    I am pretty sure I sold these a while ago. If I happen to stumble upon them, I will repost.

    How are you cleaning and reusing them? I have a pretty good system that seems to work very well (for me, anyway). After I use a catheter, I rinse/wash it with water and shake the excess water off. ...

    Correct and correct. The 700s can help to smooth out bumps and rough surfaces. They seem to roll pretty fast and smoothly at high speeds, too. In terms of performance, I don't feel that they...

    Getting back to the original issue... You shouldn't need to machine entirely new brackets to fit a 1.25 camber tube. Would it be feasible to just re-machine the existing brackets? Sounds like...

    It's my opinion that discs are the fastest wheel option in any conditions (for handcycles). In wind, you can definitely feel it pushing on you, but I don't believe it causes one to lose much speed. ...

    Great work. There's no doubt that you spent quite a bit of time on it. What does it weigh?

    I've mounted the plates on the inside of GPV frames. You just have to move the axle tube/sleeve out far enough to accommodate the offset. It will probably narrow the overall footprint by at least...

    The plates can actually be run in any orientation. I didn't put any washers under them as I didn't want to set it up with any camber. Having zero camber often gives the illusion that it is actually...

    Also, I'd be willing to trade this for a smaller folding chair. Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you'd like to make an offer!

    Discs are the best for racing chairs, but they are rarely cheap. Plus, you'd probably have to drill them for handrims if you were able to find a set. Tri-spokes are OK but have quite a bit of...

    Are they for a handcycle or racing chair? All three? Just rears?
  17. TiLite X titanium folding chair 18W x 17D $450

    I have a very nice TiLite X titanium folding chair that is in excellent condition. I was hoping to modify it to fit me, but it would need some extensive modification to make it work. So, I've...

    Just get some 4"(100mm) scooter wheels. You can get pretty much any color/style you want. Cheap, too. Lots of 'em on fleaBay.
  19. In the market for a couple handcycles.

    A friend of mine is running a program that is in need of a couple handcycles. Ideally, I'd like to find a Top End Force (or Force 2 or Force G,) Intrepid Tourer, or Quickie Shark. If you happen to...

    There are a couple other manufacturers that have new bikes in the works (that would definitely be an upgrade from your FR.) So, maybe within the next year or two, there will be some more options. ...

    I used to be a bit wary of CF use in everyday chairs (and other forms of adaptive equipment.) However, if done right, I think it is a far superior alternative to aluminum and titanium. Post-weld...

    There are few disadvantages to the reclined bikes. Obviously, the transfer may be a little more difficult than on an FRH. However, most people get it figured out pretty quickly and don't have much...

    Good to know. The one I ordered has a fixed crank position. As long as any flex is spread out over more than just one area, it shouldn't be an issue. In actuality, a little flex in a longseat bike...

    I've also been wondering about a potential flex issue. I was borrowing a friend's Force X for about a month or so. During that time, I rode with a couple guys that have brand new RXs. It seemed...

    I have a very similar injury. It will take a while for your bowel and bladder stuff to get "settled down." For me, it was about two years. For the first two, UTIs were common. Plenty of...
