Last year I was burned and received 3rd degree burns on 45% of my right arm. I also have some nerve damage that causes a great deal of hand pain that is manageable with the right meds. I have been wanting to get another bike and was considering a full suspension mountain bike to try to help absorb all the hits on my hands but after looking at the recumbents I think I would be much better off getting a trike. I am looking for one just to get around and ride some with the kids. I'ld like to be able to put a rack on the back and carry a few items if needed. Comfort is more important to me than speed so a touring geared unit would be fine. I've been looking at the catrike units and think they may be what I want but I didn't know if there was anything else I should be looking at? Also since there isn't any recumbent dealers in my area I'll likely have to order direct. I've prefer to keep the price in the $2500 range if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
