      Hi Judy,

      Have you seen the Stokemonkey yet?
      Check out cleverchimp.com to read about it. I know of at least one
      local woman who used the Stokemonkey to help her riding sooner after
      getting hit by a car on her Xtracycle.
      She had her Stokemonkey setup on a recumbant trike so she could get
      peddling even sooner.
      There's a couple pics of her crunched Xtracycle in the photo gallery
      here under Aarons Bike Repair's folder. She's Aaron's wife.

      Check this page a bit over half way down the page for a pic of Gypsie
      on her trike with son in tow. The red thing by her knees is the
      Stokemonkey motor. http://www.rideyourbike.com/xtracycleride5.html

      Good luck in your recovery.
