    Good deal, looks like you have a motivated wife, hard to find in this day and age, at least most of the women I go out with just want to be wined and dined and do nothing but sit on their asses. I'd love to find a woman who could help me set up my boat and that sort of thing, I could do a lot more sailing that way. I can't get the mast in alone. Looks like you guys must do a lot of riding, that's great.

    What type of harness did you finally choose?
    C 5/6 Comp.
    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    I stuck with mesh u-sling and extended the leg loops to keep me at 90 degrees.

    I'm sorry maybe it's me and I respect the fact that you are out exercising and getting in better shape but that does not look like an EASY transfer at all. I clicked on this post and thought I would see a new easy independent or somewhat independent transfer from a chair to your arm bike but it looks like a lot of work for your wife.

    Who packs the bike up and gets it out at your destination? Who gets the sling under you? Who puts your gloves on? Straps your feet in? I see who does all the pumping up and down and the positioning of both you and the bike. I don't know maybe I'm wrong but it looks like a lot of work for her, there must be an easier way

    you can make excuses or get it done , we get it done.
    1. we pack the bike. I lift front wheel in the back, she pushes it in. she removes right wheel while I do left.
    2. sling is stupid easy, nothing under your but. I slip it behind my back then leg loops under my thighs
    3. I put my wrist wraps on

    just like night before. I get our camelbaks filled with water and electrolyte powder while she airs tires.

    that's what being married is all about, teamwork. nothing better than leaving the chair behind and training together. nothing more important than fitness and being able to do it together is fantastic.
