In July of 2011 we had the pleasure of working with the I Will Foundation athlete, Hector Picard. Designing a bicycle for a double arm amputee presented some interesting challenges that we were excited to tackle. A blog post detailing the unique solutions to overcome these challenges for his first bike can be found here. This past May, misfortune struck Hector when his custom bicycle was stolen from the back of his car in Florida.
A collaborative effort between Signature Cycles, the I Will Foundation, and generous industry partners got Hector back on the road as soon as possible.
Thanks to Seven Cycles, Shimano, Zipp Speed Weaponry, and the I Will Foundation, Hector was able to get a replacement bike made so that he could get get back to riding.
