          cory, it's a gravity sport. no pedals. no gears. just full suspension and damn powerful hydro disc brakes on all 4 wheels.

          john, actually you might be able to. we modified the controls so i can brake by pushing vs pulling.

          jhm, no finger function, just wrist extension & flexion.

          actually i lied about losing interest in handcycling, but this has much more of a rush. downhill is difficult to do regularly due to logistics of needing a mountain w/ trails & a way to get to the top (over & over; we use ski lifts out here). handcycling can be done anywhere.

            Come on man, I want some action shots! That looks like it would be friggin' wild, especially in that scenery.

                  Awesome Scott ! You are blessed to have a wife that cycles with ya, can't get these blimps here on anything that doesn't have a menu attached, lol. I like that bike too, SHARP.
                  I was gonna ask how you get repeat rides downhill...doesn't happen here, ya gotta pedal.

                  PS love the mountains/scenery!

                        I have a few more on my phone, will get to them later. We didn't take a lot but may get some more tomorrow. It's a blast.

                        The bike belongs to the Adaptive Sports Center & costs roughly $10k.

                            Scott, you've got me drooling man, for both the downhill and CB. Were you up on Snodgrass in that pic? Crested Butte Adapated Sports are awesome!

                              Looks great. How many laps at CButte could you do in a morning roughly? Look forward to more pictures.... great job.
                              Ah, the allure of gravity sports....
