    range of motion

    Does anyone have a used set of Crank Shorteners?My name is Brian Schmitt, I suffer from an Autoimmune Disease called Scleroderma which causes the Skin and Soft Tissues to harden. I was in a wheelchair for a while,but now walk distances of 3-5 miles on a regular basis! I recently bought a Bike and I'm having a little problem with my range of motion. I have searched around and found that they make crank shorteners,that can help by reducing the stroke! I live of of SSI and don't have a lot of $

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    Unfortunately all the crank shorteners online are around $100. I know thats a lot for someone living on SSI.
    Good luck in your search and have fun riding.
