For the non-techies out there:
- the bike is carbon fiber (super light)
- grip shifting (no need to take my hand off the handle bar)
- has hydraulic disc breaks (great stopping power even with my 3 finger grip strength)
- a rear cassette (rear gears) that gives me maximum range for hills/flats without using a double/triple front chain ring that would complicate shifting for me....and it looks sweet.
Off to Portland soon to have my bike arm prosthetic made soon.
And thanks to all that donated to me.
Getting back on the bike has been expensive, but with your help it is happening.
