    I've had good luck with the tdx brushless chairs and nothing beats their low speed torque short of my most recent chair the frontier v6. The V6 is a FAR superior chair out doors but it is not what...

    I hadn't even noticed whether you'd called it a "problem" pat, that phrasing is just how it flowed out of my fingers and onto the WWW. I used quotes because I don't really see it as an issue, 20Mph...

    If you look in the photo you'll see the color change where the handle screws into what I think you're calling the crank, that last section is about 2.5-3" each side so I'd say 21-22" is the...

    Just measured the cranks, 27" to the outside of the handles at the pivot points. That reminded me of another thing that I liked about the Varna, the cranks fit a standard square taper bottom bracket...

    Based on what he has said here about the usefulness of e-assist in training, and the flack he caught being an early adopter of geared bikes I suspect you're wrong on that one.

    I hope you guys are...

    Closest thing to "credible" information I can find says the average river valley depth in Edmonton is about 160ft and around 200ft at its deepest... From the hip I'd guess downtown is taller than...

    Or... Maybe I have a hugely inflated sense of how tough a handcycle is to ride. Lol. Might be that these hills really are no big deal or I'm just a whiner :-P

    I still find it hard to believe that the 350 watt bionx system would be overkill or perhaps even adequate. Just as a frame of reference, in the last two days I've been down in the river valley using...
