Thank you for the thoughts. I agree that I'm pretty limited by the frame design. Some of the lower, sportier ones are built exactly like you're saying: longer frame, rear wheels further back (hence...

Thank you for the information. I'll look into that tire brand, and definitely appreciate the explanation about tire pressures and pinch flats. I've got a lot to learn and appreciate you helping me...

Good catch. I hadn't noticed that Top End's similar bike uses 24" tires. Mine (on this Action brand) are definitely 26". Did those Continental tires have pretty good grip?

I'll get some weight out...

Dan, thank you for the artwork and suggestion. The "sportier" handcycles come with footrests like you're suggesting - out by the front wheel instead of low, in front of the seat. Probably because the...

Clyde, thank you for all of the suggestions. Will try some weight out front and lower front tire pressure. Your idea for narrower front/wider rear tires is interesting. Do you think the traction lost...

Handcycle traction improvement

Greetings all. I initially posted this in the adaptive cycling/handcycle forum, but it looks like it might fit in here and reach different viewers here. A little background on me to help explain my...

Greetings all. A little background on me to help explain my question. I'm paralyzed from the waist down for 31 years now. Using a wheelchair for that long has started taking its toll on my body, so...
