I think we would CC.  I will keep researching too.  It's just hard because while there are tons of bike shops out here in CO, not many have knowledge or info on these types of bikes because it's not what they sell.  Maybe I will just get her a used big wheel.  Those were fun to ride back in the day. :)

Might be fun going down hill, not so sure about up them. 

 

I used to love trying to do the spin skid stop on those things.

I have been looking for a bike for the wife.  She has a Ataxia - progressive neurological condition affects balance, coordinate and the like.  I am looking for a some type of trike - some I have found are really big and heavy looking and I am looking for something more lightweight and portable.  I don't expect many people or any for that matter to have any advice, but since this was a bike thread, thought I would check.  I just started looking online to find info, so I am at the beginning stages.  We just want to find some outdoor activity she can do.  We do go outside and use her wheelchair and often take our huskies, but she wants to do more than sit on her ass while I push and the huskies pull. :)

Example of what I have found.

Any suggestions or knowledge is welcome.  Totally understand if no one has any info as this is a strange request.

Brew: An ebike might be a great fit for her because of its ability to assist her effort:

I like granola and the people it is associated with.

That's great. 

The nature valley commercial where the girl would daintily nibble the bar and it miraculously stayed whole and didn't her teeth didn't break off cracked me up.

Homebrewcock, there is a small company in Fletcher, NC (South Asheville) that builds and designs trikes for people with physical disabilities (foot pedal, hand pedal, electric and various combinations.  Might be worth talking to them to design one around her capabilities. https://outriderusa.com/
