- Mar 10, 2007Hi 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.
