    I probably have a 70 degree bend at the knee or so (as in the angle between my thigh and lower leg is more acute than 90 degrees).

    The rain returned in my neck of the woods and I got to test out my setup. Felt like a proper ass with a skirt draped across my lap, but what else is new, that's how I carry everything.

    So I ran home during my lunch break and cut one of the legs off of my Frogg Toggs rain pants and then cut that cylinder down one side. It's just about the perfect size to fit on my lap, and when I...

    I'm leaving in 8 days, so I'm running low on time to order anything at this point. I'd still love to have something exactly like the raindek Brad09 posted... if it was a little less than $100, and...

    This is exactly what I want, like literally what I had in mind. I just can't figure out the sizing. The lengths listed are like 5-6 feet (assuming there in cm), so I have no idea how they are...
  10. Recommendations for keeping lap dry in rain?

    Im traveling to Colombia soon and this time of year it rains more often than not. I?ve got a very compact rain jacket that folds up to pocket size, but my thighs are probably the most susceptible...

    Whose shoulders have lasted the longest?

    Just curious of us manual wheelchair users if anyone has maintained relatively good health (outside of the obvious SCI) for a long, long time.

    Can anyone explain why marathons (possibly other wheelchair tires, though I've been brand loyal for a long time) are so hard to get on? There doesn't seem to be a good reason. Changing bicycle...
