Adaptive Cycling

People who have been injured sometimes need help to adapt their bikes or trikes to enable them to bike again.  We are not just bicycle mechanics or bike shop owners.  Bill Gillette is a licensed mechanical engineer and utilizes SolidWorks software and his knowledge of design and fabrication to make creative solutions for bike modifications.  These modifications can help people get biking again. We have helped brain trauma patients, brain tumor survivors, MS patients, back injury patients, Arthritics, and autistic individuals. We understand first hand the challenges in adaptive cycling as many people in our family are affected with these challenges.

With close ties to the local Disability Resources Center and Pat Neal Rehab Center we also welcome hand cyclists, some of whom we have went cycling with.   We have no problem working on your special bike and also do sewn parts modifications. We produced many custom sewn parts for  local hand cyclists when they purchased them from Greenlee's bike shop in Knoxville.

One project we especially enjoyed working on in the spring of 2012 was heavily modifying a push cart for use by a young lady in triathlons to raise money for the Patricia Neal Rehab Center. This involved computer modeling a linkage system to allow the pushing person to steer while she pedaled and provided motive force for the cart.
