Any of you out there into your bikes? 
Pushbikes I mean?

So here is a question for you, how much would you be willing to spend on a bike?

I got a new bike recently as my old one is 15 years old and was starting to cost more than it’s worth to repair it. So I bit the bullet and decided to order a new bike.

I put the order in last October and it arrived in July! Some of this was due to COVID delays, but it is also custom built to suit my height, size and weight, so manufacturing it and customising it to fit takes time.

But here’s the killer, It was built in Poland, so by the time they put it together and freighted it to Australia it cost just over $20,000…… 

YES That’s 20 THOUSAND! Dollars…

See this is the thing about an injury or a disability, there is no production line turning out hundreds of these bikes each day. Many of them are custom built to suit the user so the time and effort is obviously going to cost more.

But seriously $20,000 for a hand-powered mountain bike? 

I’d like to hear from any of you that have bikes and how much you paid for yours!

So just think about that for a minute; the cost of equipment, wheelchairs, modifications to your house?

Don’t hurt yourself, it costs a fortune in more ways than one.
