If you look for more tips about modifying / using a bicycle with a below elbow amputation, check links regarding "bike" (LINK), "biking" (LINK), and "bike mods" (LINK). There is a longer article in German regarding bicycle modification (LINK).

My bicycle modifications were installed by the tech wiz bike shop CYCLE SHARK in Zuerich. They took time and knowhow and could have taken this even further. I required gear switch modifications. And they threw in an arm rest.

Because of that, I need good brake control.
