I am very interested in building a trike handcycle. I saw one reference in an older Bicycling
magazine about one built by a Jim Brummer. No luck tracking that. Also, I could not find much doing
google searches in reference to plans or what works .(prefered rake, trail, ect.) Would like some
thing pretty low slung soas not to tip over. And one that handles decent at speed.

Thanks

Tim Brummer from Lightning? Didn't find any mention of handcycles. http://www.lightningbikes.com/

But Varna makes a lot of handcycles. Maybe some tips to be had there.

The Lightning Handcycle web site is at < http://www.handcycle.com/ >. The exact relationship between
Lightning Cycle Dynamics (LCD) (Thunderbolt, Phantom, P-38, and R-84) and Lightning Handcycles is
unclear, although LCD proprietor Tim Brummer is mentioned as being the builder of the Lightning
Handcycle.
