    Which Handcycle do you suggest ?

    I'm starting to look into handcycles ...does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look at ? I am a T11 para if that helps -- I just want something comfortable to get me back outside.

    Any suggestions ?

    Don just got an Invacare Top End Excelerator XLT... we looked at Freedom Ryders and Quickie Sharks too.

    If you have good upper balance...then the Freedom Rider may be a good choice. You turn it using your body by leaning into the turns. I do not have good balance....so I have an Excelerator XLT. All of them are heavy (most of the weight is on the front of the bike due to the gears and such being there). I would not go for the XLT Gold bike because that is more for those who race, etc. I talked to Scott at www.bike-on.com when I was looking for mine. He was really knowledgable and is in a chair himself...so he has first hand experience.
