2014 Friedrich's Ataxia Research Alliance Ride to Cure FA | NorCal

Once again, we had the opportunity to turn out in support of Kyle Bryant and his band of amazing people.

350 riders rode whichever ride worked best for them: 60, 40, 10, 5, or 1 to raise funds for research to cure FA.

An incredible $110,000 was raised as well as the hopes of all.

It was an honor and a privilege to see: Team Sean, Team Lindsay, Team Meghan, Team Izzy, and more. Of course, we all fall under the umbrella of Team Kyle.

Thank you Felicia, Mr. Music Guy, Mazeres family, Outback Steakhouse, and the innumerable others who made this event into a reality.

Shifting Cum Laude

Congratulations, T, C, and J on successful completion of the Shifting Workshop and passing the Practical Exam with flying stars!

There's no fooling you with random adjustment of limit screws and barrel adjusters.

Next time, Alignment. We'll make some nice alignment tools and use 'em.

Fun

Trikes are fun! Everyone loves them. Everyone can ride them.

This means that you'll be looking forward to your next ride instead of dreading it.

These are not your grandfather's trike, though.... Look closer. These are recumbent: which means you sit back in comfort. No pressure points on your wrists or prostate. No cricking of the neck.

Bottom line: "Fun" means this is a machine you will use well.

Take another look: At first blush, they all look the same... but, upon closer examination (and, this is why we encourage you to come in to see and try them personally), you will see stark differences:

  • How high is the seat?
  • How reclined?
  • Does it fold?
  • What steering mechanism does it use?
  • What wheel configuration does it have?
  • Frame construction?
  • Suspension?
  • What brakes?

There are no right or wrong answers, but there is a right answer for you.

We have every commercially available trike that is worth its salt. We'll help you sift through the options. We'll guide you to likely candidates. We'll listen to your feedback.

At AlphaBENT, we are committed to your happiness. We want you to get the right trike no matter what brand, how much you spend, or what options you want... and we won't upsell you and if you are looking at trikes or options that will have you spending more money than you need to spend, we'll tell you so.
