Custom Handcycle Build

Custom Builds are our specialty

The nature of customization may be for that competitive advantage or to accomodate your special needs.  Tell us what you need, challenge us!

Andy Barker is our Custom Builder.  Racers from around the globe have been in touch with Andy for that special customized edge.  It may be a component or drivetrain upgrade, high end wheels, or a complete build from scratch.  Andy has a loyal following now and, well, as it says on his business cards -  'If you can dream it, I can build it!'

Andy conceptualized our now famous Quad Pro.  The Quad Pro is the product of wishes from lot's of quads who were sick and tired of riding an internal geared 7 speed handcycle with a coaster brake.  Sure, it's a good bike to start out with and it works well on flats, but if you get the bug for handcycling, or want to push your racing limits, 27 speeds is needed.  See our Quad Pro page for more details on this design.

We often hear from folks wanting to ride a recumbent trike who have had a stroke or head injury leaving them impaired on one side mostly.  They may need an adaptive pedal on one or both sides and the shifters and brake levers all built onto their dominant side.  We've got many folks now cruising on 81 speed Greenspeed GTO's.  There are other bikes we can customize so get with us on this stuff, we'll put Andy on the design and you'll be amazed at the outcome!

Here are a few examples of Andy's work

XLTGOLD with Rohloff 14 Speed Internal Hub

Here's a beautiful XLTGOLD we built up for Terry Blackwell of New Orleans.  Terry is well into his goal of riding a marathon in every state in the USA.

This bike features Mavic Open Pro rims, Phil Wood high flange hubs on the rears, Ti fork and crank housing and that very cool, smooth shifting Rohloff front hub.

Here's what Terry says:

"Scott, I've attached a photo of the Gold that Andy put together for me.  It's a great piece of work and I thought you may want to use it on your website?  Andy, great job.

Thanks Terry"

Quad Pro

by Bike-On

Most quads end up with an XLT 7 speed handcycle if they choose the lowstyle bike.  If their budget will allow then the mountain drive is an excellent option.  Some want more!!  We hear from many who long for an XLTPRO.  Andy pondered that and came up with this combination.
