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.

Complete with 4.8” rear and 4.6” front tires, Tektro hydraulic brakes, Shimano XT 11 speed drivetrain with 11-50 tooth cassette. The frame is built with 4130 tubing. Rear wheel spacing is 197mm x 12 thru axle with alum replaceable derailleur hanger. Frame is built with a jackshaft with enough room for a mid-drive motor like the Bafang BBSO2 or TSDZ2.

Took the ladies out for a #fatbike ride up Cement creek this afternoon. The first real test ride for the new #BomberExpedition. ‘‘Twas a blast and had no problem pulling the Burley and pulling us up some 10% grades covered in snow. I’m super impressed with the new motor I installed and I couldn’t be happier with the new Bomber. Stoked to ride to Gothic townsite tomorrow. I’ve never been out there in the winter and now I have the tool to do so! ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

is that the motor going on my bomber?

that's pretty awesone!

You can really see the seating difference when you are in it. My neck feels better just seeing this pics?

Really cool!

😎 awesomeness

That’s so awesome! I love that you can pull that precious little girl in the Burley!!

Awesome Jake!!!

Do they make carriers for the bikes to hook on to the tow bars for these types of bikes?

Looks like a great winter family activity!

You're awesome my friend!!

Rad! Enjoy the ride out to Gothic!

Future goals 💜🤘🏻🤙🏻

Looks like a wonderful machine. Enjoy it.

Yes please!

YES YES YES, can I get 10?

Beast. What is the torque motor?

I’m ready to order my Nuke! Any in progress or a good time to order? Maybe a test bike waiting to be sold? Hit me up Jake!

the bare metal frame looks cool

Heated chest pad might be a nice upgrade.

That’s awesome man. Can we put that type of e-assist on mine. I need to get it figured out by next riding season.

I’m glad the “Naked Fatty” is catching on

REALLY looking forward to assembling this beast tomorrow. The Bomber Expedition will be the new all purpose off road handcycle capable of offroading, bike packing, hauling all your gear, slamming through the snow, going fishing, you name it. New geometry should allow the rider more comfort in the prone position. Can’t wait to get her on the fat tire groomers next week! #offroadhandcycle #offroadhandcycling #bomberexpedition #reactiveadaptations #fattirehandcycle #fattirebike ... See MoreSee Less

That is really a super looking piece of equipment.

You should try it out!

Looking great Jake O'Connor, I was going to ask a stupid question. Where's the shock I had to enlarge the picture to find it.

Does the piece mounted under the butt of the bucket go flush? Just wondering how that’s going to do on a chairlift.

Looking good Jake! Looks stout! 👏😎 Look forward to seeing future updates on how it performs.

so what i am 2 things

will reactive be producing mono skis for sale in the future?

Kelsom Owens

Good looking ski!

What could be built for a hemiplegic w no use of right arm and minimal right leg? She can go like hell on a recumbent bike(nustep) for an idea. Looking for ideas, and wasnt sure where to ask. TIA!

Yep, made it, finally. Just barely wide enough for my 26” wheels, horizontally. “The Ridge” #hartmanrocks is an ass kicker for handcycles but I’ll eventually get the whole ride done unassisted. At least I got the first obstacle crossed off the list. ... See MoreSee Less

Awesome. Inspiring me to get out before the snow is to deep here in Montana!

I was out on skinny tires yesterday...I had to put a cyclocross tire on the front. Of course I have to stick to road riding only. Fat tires would be AWESOME...You could go anywhere!!! ❤❤❤

I want one

A little off road handcycling under Blue Mesa Rez. She’s about 30-50’ ( maybe more?) in some places. Rode the bike under the bridge and old Hwy 50 which may never happen again (hopefully). Offroad handcycling isn’t always about getting gnarly on the single track, it’s about accessing places you’ll never be able to access again in your lifetime, with your family and friends (and puppy dog). Great photos check them all out @agirlandherblackdog ... See MoreSee Less

Drove through there for the first time a couple of weekend ago on a trip to Ouray and back. Was surprised to see how low it was. I really wanted to pull off down there where you went riding.

I can’t believe how low the water is!

Great photos, great perspective.

Looks like it gets lower every year?

Dan Scrivner check out these cool handcycles in CO

Great pictures!!!!

Full suspension recumbent bike with hydraulic braking, mess seat, with 24 inch front wheel and 29 rear with 2.25 width tires. Weight limit up tp 250. Sounds like a VA purchase in the furture. Lol

Upgraded ? You’ve got a rad ride man!!

You going to make it something the “old” hammerhead can bike upgraded with?
