Who would make a hand cycle with Endo's on it?

I took an interest 'cause I think the following is going to take real guts.

This women, http://www.karendarke.com/pole is planning a trip by "sit ski"

I jotted her an email with a few concerns about the "Bio Mechanical" ( for want of a better term) position of her shoulders, I feel she's prone to shoulder injury. She replied with a thought of using a hand cycle (+ other ideas) from this mob, http://www.varnahandcycles.com/hc11.htm I looked at it and formulated a few ideas over and above this one but thought why reinvent the wheel if there is something else out there. I reckon an internal hub would be the go and rear driven wheels would be more practical than front wheel drive.

I;m going to post this on the frame builders section as well.

Thanks

Al

Steve Garro, of Coconino Cycles would be my first choice.
Ace builder, and has first hand (no pun intended!) experience with off road hand cycling. I've only seen one of his builds up close- well thought out, good stuff.

sslos, Thanks mate, his name also popped up on the Frame building section and he wrote a reply as well. I've forwarded it on to Karen. Thanks again.
