it looks like you're going from a trike back to a recumbent. I won't be at competition, i graduated and moved to Kentucky. The handcycle was designed for Paraplegics and lower limb amputees, they just thought it would be cool to bring it to competition. and they did well, that whole original idea thing. but this years will hopefully be alot better. last year's cycle was built before that drivetrain had ever been installed in a cycle so it wasn't positioned correctly in the frame b/c we didn't know where the best spot should be. the HPV's cycle topped out at 11 mph, i could easily get mine up to 16 mph and then i ran out of gears.
