You really need to get a shifter like mine, very easy an convenient. In a race I can start almost as fast as strong bikers with triceps since I start on low gear and and shift very fast upward as I go, something they cannot do, but then they disappear quite fast after that

    Yea he is a good guy and he helps a ton of people out. I will have to check out your set up and try it because anything that is easier than what I have now will help. I am not fast enough to race yet but I am hoping I will get fast enough soon and with the right set up that will be awesome.

    An example of a fast guy with a good setup:
    Pharmacist, C4-5 injury but functional C6 (no triceps/flexors)

    Hard to figure out from the pic, can you shift without letting go of the crank?

    The FRH-1 is adjustable up and down; back and forth. The back is also very adjustable and can recline even further with their optional hinged tube.

    One of the things I really like on my FRH is the way it turns. There's no lifting of the leg as a person turns. I also like the dampner system much better. No more replacing that little rubber steering dampner like those on the T/E.
