    There is a Guy right there in Crested Butte that is making handcycles now. He said that he is working on a prototype with a suspension. If he does a good job I will probably sell my one-off and get one of his. I love riding my one-off but going down hill on a rocky road can jar the shit out of you. I have ridden the downhill chairs like in your pictures and they just glide right over the rocks with the suspension. I have been using my one-off a lot to go fishing and "hike" back into places I couldn't get a wheelchair. I can strap a fly rod onto my backpack and go.

    Yeah, I know him. My questions directed to Chris in this thread were asked b/c I'm collecting ideas to propose to him a bike design that's more suited to higher level injuries.
