Well my Bike is in the full scale drawing stage. The builder has been working with the UCI and the Handcycling Division to get some things approved.
I pose a question to you: what is your thoughts on this statement " shifting controls have to be within the extremeties of the crank arms "
My take on this statement is the the shifter has to somewhere "between" the two handgips. Using my interpretation the shifter does not have to be mounted on the grips it can be frame mounted somewhere between the crank arms. I am trying to eliminate all cables from both hand grips since I ride mostly open roads but I want to still be within the guidlines so I can compete at santioned events.
I would apreciate your thoughts on this.
Also we have not heard back on the use of a carbon drive system. I don's see why there would be an issue since the belt is completely sandwitched between two plates and this makes it virtualy impossible to get your fingers stuck on them. This would eliminate the use of a hard mounted sprocket guard. Thoughts?
