Reviewer: james d. from naples, fl
User Details: 65 years old, paralyzed lower extremities, arms becoming weak. Owned XL Xcellerator for 11 years.
Strengths: All portions of the handcycle are top end products throughout the entire bike.
Weaknesses: I requested a 14 speed TOP END bike and on my other Xcellerator I had a 7 speed only but different crank proportions which the O.T. discussed with me 12 years ago. The gearing for this bicycle leaves gears one through seven as so low you would be climbing a 10 degree hill for any use. Gears 8 through 14 provide about the force of second gear on a 3 speed bicycle. You must train in a different manner to satisfy a person with disability's needs more intently
