Anyway, Lisa seems to have caught some cycling fever. She's actually shown some interest in riding with me lately. I checked into it and there's no way I can afford to get her a hand cycle (those things run in the thousands), but I should be able to afford to get a trailer for her. ;) The thing is, though, I need to find a suitable trailer fast because I'd like to have it in time to get it as an anniversary gift, and our anniversary is August 17th. ;)
Does anyone know where I can get a bicycle trailer suitable for an adult handicapped person? I'm specifically looking for the following features ("essential" features I must have... "optional" features would be ideal, but not essential).
- minimum 115 lb weight capacity
- harness (five point if possible)
- push bar (so it can double as a wheelchair at a destination)
- quick release wheels (ease of flat repair)
- standard wheel size*
- forward sitting position
- foldability for storage
- incontinence resistant covers
Standard wheel sizes for which a wide variety of tires are available are 20", 24", 26" and 700c.
I need to find information on this ASAP so I want to spread the word as far as I can as fast as I can. If anyone knows anything that might help me here, it would be greatly appreciated! :)
