      I'd be thrilled if Xtracycle would produce a handlebar unit for
      footsies standers and deck sitters. Sure, I enjoy when friends hold
      onto me (better than the deck or the seat post), but for smoother
      riding, sometimes I stand up, and I have to be sure not to when a
      rider needs me for his/her own balance. I would certainly be a first
      buyer of such a product!
