"I think every avid cyclist should add one of these to their stable. The Sun HT3 Handcycle give you a full upper body workout to balance the lower body workout you get from you regular bike or trike. You will feel it in your arms, shoulder, neck, lats, and lower back. Its like doing circuit training outside on the road. To be considered as a true form of transportation you'll want to upgrade the HT3's gearing." - Ashley
View some recent custom trike buildsof the Sun HT-3 8-Speed Hand Trike:
Sun Bicycles' new HT-3 Hand-Trike is designed to get persons with disabilities out riding. It's also great for those riders looking to balance their excersize with a terrific upper body workout.
Our version of the HT-3 features a hand-powered 8-Speed Shimano drive train. A ball-bearing seat adjuster makes seat positioning and rider transfer a breeze. The HT-3 has an adjustable crank height, forward and aft seat adjustment and independently adjustable foot rests to give all riders a custom fit. Cambered rear wheels and a long wheelbase give this trike exceptional stability, and the front parking brake facilitates a safe transfer.
We have also made several custom adaptations of this trike to handle both hand and foot pedaling.

Could quick-release skewers be easily fitted to the rear wheels of the HT-3? I ask because I wonder if the this trike is too tall to fit fully assembled into the back of our VW Passat wagon (my Catrike Villager fit back there just fine) -- but maybe the ability to quickly remove the rear wheels might help it to just barely fit into the back cargo bay for easy loading?

The rear wheels are free spinning and held on by a nut. While not a quick release, you can easily remove the nut and slide the wheels off. Posted by Ashley
Hi, I have a friend that is looking for ... a recumbent hand & leg powered trike. I ride a GreenSpeed GT5 and she likes mine, but her legs are not very stong. Any ideas?? Posted by Spinner

It's a lot easier to take a foot powered trike and add a hand powered system than the other way around.
