    With more and more people with spinal cord injuries and other injuries (war veterans and such) I see a real need for technology to get to work designing real bicycles for us. I have a spinal cord injury and have a nifty 3 wheel bike, but it is definitely much harder work to ride than the average 2 wheeler, and no great options for breaks and gear changes that are not super expensive to retrofit.

    Agreed. I'm guessing that the military would have the technology but getting it to the public is another story and probably not happening anytime soon.

    I need the help of a bicycle designer/manufacturer. My son experienced a spinal cord injury a couple of years ago and has paralysis in his longer legs and feet. For therapy he rides a FES bike and he is able to walk using canes, walking sticks, AFOs. He wants to have a bicycle that he can ride on the street that can accommodate his 6'4" build and that also can have a back-up battery pack for inclines or long distances when his power is not enough. Thought I'd found a vendor who could manufacture such a bike for us until he found out that he was 6'4". Can anyone direct me? Thanks so much!
