    An innovative take on adaptive cycles

    Found these guys while searching for videos, some out of the box designing. Anyone tried/have one?

    Thanks Alpental,
    Whoa, those training wheels don't retract. I wonder how you turn without those training wheels stopping the bike lean. Thanks for posting that, very cool but I think the standard handcycle is better despite the weight of the third wheel and the axle.
    I wish Trek or Cannondale would spend 3 weeks with their engineers and really fabricate a great sub 20 lb handcycle. It would be very good 'feel good' marketing to do so. Anybody out there in the bike business?

    They DO retract! I thought that was the cool part - get up to speed, pull up the landing gear and you're off on two wheels.

    I stand corrected. Landing gear... That is what would get me back into a 2 wheel leg powered recumbent bike and out of a trike. I will check out how they do that...
    thanks
