NEW BIKES:

HITCH RACKS:

  • Electric Handcycle Hitch Rack – Coming soon.  With use of an electric jack we built a rack that will raise and lower your handcycle with a flick of a switch!  With time we plan to refine this rack and have it available to the public in 2018.
  • George’s Ramp rack – George bought a Bomber from us and wanted to carry it in his full size SUV.  So we built a rack that inserted into his hitch receiver that allowed George to ramp his Bomber in and out of his SUV.  Adjustable width and soon to have adjustable height.
  • Jet Ramp – Jet bought a Bomber with e-assist and wanted to carry it inside his van (I know, the video shows a different car for convenience), so we built him the “Jet” ramp.  It’s all aluminum, fold-able and is a great way to load your handcycle into the rear of your car.  Requires a hitch receiver.

The Best in Offroad Handcycles & Recumbent Bikes

I love the challenge of off road handcycling. I’d rather spend an hour trying to figure out how to get past a single obstacle then have any help. Off road handcycling = ultimate independence. #beindependant #offroadhandcycle #offroadhandcycling #figureitout #wheelchairlife #reactiveadaptations thanks to @agirlandherblackdog for photos ...

ReActive Swing-Away Conversion Arm
Available to purchase: The ReActive Swing-Away Conversion Arm that allows your existing bicycle hitch rack to swing away to the side of your vehicle, allowing you to easily access the back of your vehicle. This works great for trucks, SUV's, hatchbacks cars & pretty much anything/everything out there. Available for 2" and 1 1/4" hitch receivers. These are built with heavy duty steel = very strong. They are professionally powder coated satin black. $225 plus shipping and applicable taxes. Taking orders now.

If this conversion is as well built and works as well as his trike work stand, then it is a winner. Great products, great quality. I love mine!

Todd Wesslen - check-it

Michelle Clark

Do you have a photo from the rear of the vehicle? Is there any drop down in height from the receiver? How long is the swing away arm? I have a van with low clearance and double doors at the rear.

Alexandra

I can personally say these things are as solid as they come!

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!

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 ...

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

So cool!

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.
