Right Guys

I'm part way through triking a VMAX. (There's no such thing as TOO much power!!) and need to start thinking about adaptions. I'm a T7 paraplegic and want to go for kliktronic gearchange, handlebar mounted rear brakes, foot plates, etc. So has anyone any contact details for where I can get the kit?

I've tried to email the adaptions enquiry contact on the NABD website but it keeps coming up with an error & won't send.

Cheers in advance.

Call the office on 0844 415 4849 and ask for an adaption grant application form.

Hi Wheelsx - and if you want any other advice about mounting your wheelchair, etc, give me a shout - I am a T8 para and have a Rocket 3 trike. I've already ironed out some of the wrinkles you might find. Ron

I've always found the' little fixes' that people have come up with are always handy to learn about.

I have a broad understanding of all of our adaption kits and their applications which helps when advising someone about their requirements but.....

I do not have the day to day experience that some of you have, you'll have come up with little things that suit your particular case, be it changing an angle,or stuffing an extra bit of padding on somewhere.

When I get told about these things they get filed away in the back of my head until someone has an issue.
It's dead easy then to make sure not only do they get the right advice and kit but they'll already have a heads up on any potential issues they may experience.

Keep sharing folks, we never stop learning.
