Hi from UK

I'm new to this Forum, although connected to cycling through (now regretfully ended) long term sponsorship of GB Cycling federation. Was cycling all my youth and started again few years ago after a 'wedge' was found stuck in my head, causing lost of hearing and balance on one side. Was presumably fun watching me trying to ride in straight line for first few months Several bikes in my shed, from 1980s Raleigh to newest Pinarellos, none os which sees enough action, to which my missus would perhaps disagree

And welcome from Nor Cal

Have you considered a recumbant? Those things are quick and low so the balance may not be so bad.

Hi Siu Blue Wind.

Thanks for the idea, but I'm fine with it, we all have two sides and if one goes, brain simply 'trains' the other one to take over both jobs. No hand is the ultimate goal though...
