    Good looking bike guys, Congrats!

    Yes, RIP Andy. I surprized Bike-on or the handcycling community hasn't done something to remember Andy, one of the first innovators for designing equipment for handcycles.

    Nice bike I would love to try out a bike like yours, but not sure if it would work with my very ruff Oregon back country roads.

    Crash 86, would you mind getting these measurements and posting them. I had a bike just like yours and got this email today from the guy who sold it to me and switched to a RX. I sold mine and don't have it. ...."Hey Curt, was wondering if you still had the Force if you could measure the back width. I'd really like to know the outside width at the bottom, middle, and then maybe a few inches down from the top. The Force RX carbon back is not working for me very well so I want to fab up a different one. The RX back seems to be the perfect width to get sandwiched between my shoulder blades and cause some redness. Appreciate any help. Hope all is well"

    Thanks, I'll give him this link so he can look here for the measurement he needs, like I said your bike looks the same as the yellow one he sold me. I sold it as i was struggling getting on and off and the back of my arms rubbed badly against the rear wheels. I think I'd be a lot more well suited using the RX but just for racing and use my freedom ryder for general rides.

    Hmmm, I thought it was the force R. Editing to say, oh ya the frame looks a little different, but the backrest looks about the same other than the little headrest thingy on the R.

    I'll chime in, that was me asking Curt. I've got the RX. I was asking Curt because I wanted to compare the back width and shape of the RX carbon versus the Force back, which is similar to the Force R. The Force RX carbon back is more square and somehow is the perfect width to wedge right between my shoulder blades at times and gives me redness. The Force back was much more comfortable so I wanted to know the widths at the bottom, middle, and just above the top of the Force (or even Force R) so that I could get an idea of the dimensional difference. The RX back is basically completely square.
