Woah, this is terrible news. I remember Gonch being one of the most active members of this forum and kind of assumed he'd just dropped out of the scene as quite a lot of people do over time.

For other forum members if you haven't seen it, Gonch had one of the gnarliest crashes (and gnarliest sounding!) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XfIe9kYzmpI

Just had a read of the website, are you guys talking about the downhill type wheelchairs as seen in Whistler or something more pedal-able?

Hay Orge, long time eh?

Yeah s**t hit the fan and i have been out of it for a while, really really really want to get back in the saddle.

If (and thats a big if) i can raise the funds, it will get me one of these...

http://foidkap.free.fr/uk-quadrix-watts.php

Not quite like Trevair's Quad, but the advantage of an electric motor to get me round a few blue / red runs.

Any help would be fantastic. and if i dont get it, my wife is gonna use the funds to get stuff for the house, like a new hoist for the bathroom, stair lift, or whatever she can with what she has.

I did ask her to post this in general banter, but health and plaster cast was more appropriate.

But im still alive, and still kicking, just want to prove im still harder than a tree.

I don't like these sites that take a chunk out of everybody's donation.  Maybe they help raise more money more quickly, but it still stinks to me.  It seems kosher, so put up your email address and I'll Paypal you a donation.  So can anybody else who wants all their contribution to go into the right pot.  And don't do roadgaps on your new quad... ;)

worst service ive ever come across in 10+ years of buying mtb parts from all over the world.

Gonch im sorry to hear this, I remember you being on here a lot and I would like to help you but at this moment I dont have a pot to ____ in myself at the moment and im currently out of work.

Hopefully you can get the things you need at home, guessing you have been in contact with the council etc with regards to funding for your home adaptations etc, I know its an incredibly slow process to attain but they could make a massive advantage to your living, Have seen all sorts installed and its pretty impressive what can be done.

Best of luck

Matt.

it got me enough to get a power assist hand cycle, which got my stamina back up. now out of a wheel chair and walking again, (with a stick) but back in training to get back on a bike...

oh yeah... 6 years later i'm back. and looking to build another big rig to jump of silly stuff again.
