That brought a tear of joy, thanks Griff.

Here's the vid about the bike. I wondered about how he'd manage the difference in riding style, being sitting the whole time, literally strapped down into the bike. No help from his legs soaking up the movement from the bike and terrain. Turns out, there's just the one shock absorber to soak it up. Amazing.

He has a really magnetic personality, I think because he knows who he is and what he needs to be happy. I've been reading The Rise of Superman a book about attaining flow and applying it to everyday life. The author spends a lot of time on "extreme" athletes and it is about brain chemicals not so much about adrenaline as a series of them. One worry for these guys is sometimes finding flow requires going out another step beyond. He has hit the reset button I think.

He probably belongs in Gravs awesome people thread.

If you're peddling your ass around town, why not get the maximum health benefit? I mean you're going to get sweaty anyway.

Better not skip leg day if you own one of these bicycles.



And there goes Griff.

I hope her mother had a connection to get BandAids wholesale.
Grav, with her strength and balance, seven undertakers couldn't get the smile off your face.

Most people prefer four wheels to two wheels, but why not five wheels.

This appears to be a two speed set up with the switch happening in the hub at the pedals. Makes sense since there's more room and strength there.
