Hi All!

Has anyone come across anyone using an OFFROAD HANDCYCLE in Perth or Australia in general?

Most of you won't know what an offroad handcycle is or looks like, so check out the picture I have attached. There are different variations but this is the most robust design and price I have found on the market (Poland).

Simply speaking, its a tricycle primarily for those with no, or limited leg function. I broke my back 4 years ago MTB in QLD and will be getting one of these beasts mid 2013 and hitting the tracks again before my 5 year mark.

Hi,
Here are the pictures of my new CX bike, handmade in Rockingham by Allan Crisp. I am just waiting for the stickers to be printed and the headtube badge to be cut, and then it will be done, but I am very happy!

Frame was delivered to me in raw steel, and I painted it myself. I got very good results using aerosol modelling paint over a good high quality primer. The colours are 'Lime pearl' and Gunmetal. Stickers are going to be in White to match the saddle and bar tape.

The main components are:

Frame: Crisp Custom geometry, Columbus Zona Tubing, Tig Welded.
