    I've got a used LC-1 with the bionx electric assist in the classifieds right now. You can easily pull the battery and front wheel off if you don't want the assist but at least you have it if you ever need it. Make me an offer and we can talk...

    Most handcycles are pivot steering; lean steers are the exception. Here are some pivot steer handbikes:

    gmorris, I'd definately be interested if not you being 2500 miles away in Canada, when I saw Canada I thought maybe you could meet me in NH, NY or VT but then I realized your way out on the west coast so if I lived in seatle or something instead of the east coast usa we could maybe make a deal. My experience with shipping things from that far in Canada has not been good.

    Interesting, I've shipped plenty of carbon fiber mountain bikes around the US without an issue. Not cheap but you just have to pack it well...and I have all the packing material and box from my RX.

    Those are light, something more heavy like the handcycle costs a small fortune to ship and takes forever in my experience, especially from one coast to the other, if it were Toronto or Montreal or something it would not be as much. I'd say somebody on the west coast would be better buying your handcycle. It looks like a good deal though, it's not that your price is all that high or anything.

    I sent a bike from The border where I live Curt to Florida. I think it was around 300.00 including them packing up the bike.

    I'm dying to get a recumbent trike myself at some point, like Ismaisin has. But it will probably be years before I could even afford, and find an affordable, used one. (not too big of a deal, couldn't use one until after I have knee surgery anyway, and there's no guarantee of course the surgery will be successful)

    I remember I saw one when researching that had the option to be used as both foot pedal and swap out for hand pedal. I just thought something like that might be perfect for you, one machine and both options. I can see if I can remember what I was looking at when I came across it.
