---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted bicycle handlebar for a child whose left arm is shorter than her right. The difference in length between the arms made bike riding uncomfortable for the little girl since she could not quite reach the handlebar. The TAD volunteer measured the bike and the distance between the girl's hand and handlebar, and fitted the bike with a handlebar extension. The extension was made from steel tubing and sized to meet the girl's left hand at a comfortable distance. The extension was welded to the original handlebar and painted white to match the rest of the handlebar frame, then neatly finished with a bright blue grip to match the color of the bike frame. The extension can be cut off when the girl outgrows the bike so the bike will return to its original state. TITLE: A New Handlebar for Elise. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
