    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Worksman cycles has a special shop dedicated to the special needs community.

    http://worksmancycles.com/shopsite_s...cialneeds.html
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    You may also want to add http://roadracepowerpod.com/ for handcyclists who need a power assist up those hills.

    Mark B., the owner is a handcyclist himself and is a great guy to deal with.

    I just found this product:

    http://cerevellum.com/

    It is a rear view camera system. It will prove invaluable to me since I have limited vision. I am going to encorporate this in my newest handcycle build. Looks helpfull to anyone.

    I friend of mine, Russ Denny Bicycles, is located in Hemet, CA. He is a frame builder and has built several bikes for those with various limitations. He has one customer who is a racer. He can build or customize almost anything.

    Epic Bikes in McDonough, GA have worked with me extensively on fitting as well as parts selection in order to help me adapt to proper riding position and technique.

    We can also customize or build nearly anything and have built many adaptive bicycles, especially tandems.

    Besides being a mechanic and frame builder I have a professional background in rehabilitation and plan to really focus on adaptive cycling here since no other shops do it and I have a personal interest in this.

    I purchased Swing Crank from http://www.highpath.net/highpath/contact.html for my wife who has had 2 1/2 total knee replacements on her right leg, and has limited bend. It is amazing to see her ride a bike after over 25 years not being able to ride.
