Someday, one of these will my name on it!

Beautiful! Still loving mine!

Finished my new Nordic sit ski and finally got to try it out. I dig it but I need to do it more often. I’m a little fat and slow, even the puppy dog was getting tired of waiting for me! #adaptivenordicskiing #reactiveadaptations #sitski ... See MoreSee Less

my nordic sit ski

Awesome

Looks like Nickie likes it!

Love it! I’ll take a few.

Also, not sure your biceps are going to allow that sweatshirt to exist much longer...

I like her little boots.

Love Jake the mad tinkerer!

hmmm. how fast does that go?

Made this nifty car rack for Breton’s SUV so he can haul his new XC race bike and his road bike without having to lay them on their sides. Also made one for Meredith’s Tacoma. It fits any width car. You can adjust the fork holders to any location and it’s extremely light. It rests on rubber feet to minimize movement and the feet adjust outward (for and aft) so it can be “jambed” to tight corners to minimize movement. #reactiveadaptations #bikerack #innovateordie ...

I wonder if that would work in my 4Runner? hight wise?

sweet idea Jake!

Nice one jake

Cover your arse and approach a rack company.

If they are as impressed they may offer to buy your idea off you.

I'm just trying to figure out how you can break a cow bell?!

Cheap Chinese made crap. Just had a tack weld inside holding the seem together.

Heard them loud and clear yesterday!

I'll try not to ring it so hard next time... #guilty #sorryimnotsorry

Haven't totally given up yet. But frequency is slowing down.

You should sneak up the mountain and ride that down the slopes. I bet that would be fun!

That’s a bad ass bike!

That is a fantastic vehicle!

How much

What are quad brakes all about?

Fine job, sir.

Timothy Brown, Ray Clark

How do I order the same right down to the water bottle for April delivery to VT?

Your building some impressive cycles. Love it and wonder with the electric assist and all what the cost. You can PM it to me if you'd like. I'm going to post it to my page for others to see.

Damn, glad someone designed these swingarms with replaceable derailleur hangers! Man-o-man, Farris Creek can be rough on derailleurs! Replacing frame components on the trail is still better then working though. @slow____down Chad for the moral support and picture. #reactiveadaptations #offroadhandcycle #offroadhandcycling ...

Okay, I think I'm done with Rosa's GG, urban-assault/townie/road/off-road handcycle! BUT, I thought I'd swap her hybrid tires for some bigga meats, 27.5x2.4" front and 27.5x2.2" rears. Almost 8" of ground clearance with mtn bike tires..... that should clear some obstacles?! #reactiveadaptations #offroadhandcycling #offroadhandcycle #handcycle #offroadrecumbent #urbanassualthandcycle ...

That is gnarly! Love it

You sell the wheelchair rack separate??

Where do you place the manual wheelchair at? Also, any electric engine assist in the future? Solid design man.

Looks sick

Nice design bro keep up the good work. 👍

Nice work!

Wow

Another awesome creation!

Excited to ride on sunday

Rosa will love it!

Do you have any 650s? Im in need of a front tire.

With all that clearance I might be able to transfer out of it without the beached whale situation.

Nice

Getting closer to completing Rosa's GG. This is a "do it all" handcycle constructed specifically to be a work horse. It'll carry her chair, groceries, school bags, etc. it probably won't win any races but that's not the point. This is a handcycle that works for you. #reactiveadaptations ... See MoreSee Less

Good ground clearance!!👌🏻🙌🏻

Urban assault vehicle.

Would be great to see someone transfer and load chair. How much for a bike like this?

Luke Gingras

Bad ass. Would like to see the transfer too.

Cool!

That is sweet. I'd love to see better how the wheelchair mounts to the bike

I'm seriously interested in one of these designs. Love how it carries her wheelchair! Would love to see a transfer though. Great work! Please be in touch with me.

I don't care about handcycling any more

Nice work, Jake!

Estupenda creación y diseño, sin duda se va a imponer este tipo de chasis alto a las deportivas (que el piloto va excesivamente bajo), por ser más polivalentes y tener un uso variado, y si encima el costo económico está al alcance de las personas con menos ingresos o ayudas estatales, mejor que mejor... Enhorabuena y saludos desde el Sur de España..!!🇪🇸 🙋🏻‍♂️

Very cool

Jake your work is always tits on!!!

You guys going to offer a bolt on chair rack?

Awesome !!!
