The internet takes on the form of many different things for many different people. However, the one continuous good thing about the online world is that it’s still a place for individuals to share their inspirational stories.
At six feet, four inches, tall, he was struggling to find a wheelchair to fit him properly. What did Bagg do? He used his machinery skills he learned from an apprenticeship at the University of Calgary to build himself his very own custom wheelchair. This isn’t where the story stops for Bagg, who was a keen outdoor enthusiast before his accident and who wanted to continue getting outside.
He got to building a new invention, one that would allow him to go cross-country sit-skiing. This device had an articulating framework with a parallelogram that would easily let him lean to one side.
Essentially, Bagg had created for himself a trike that operated as a bike, a single wheel at the back and two at the front. This creation could be going down a steep ski slope and still be level. He’d invented something that no other adaptive bike or vehicle could do, and he knew that he had to share it with the world.
Bagg turned his design into a product to help people, and the Bowhead Reach was born. He’s now on a mission to showcase what riders can do on these unique adaptive mountain bikes.
