Hi again Dirk.
Thanks for the suggestion....it works really well! I made a straight bar
430mm long and bolted it on top and 40mm in front of the main pivot joint.
It feels comfortable, as it gives a convenient support for the hands and has
virtually stopped the PSI.  I think mounting it fore or aft of the joint
probably doesn't affect the mechanical leverage, as the important leverage
distance appears to be how far lateral to the pivot, the handgrips are
placed.  THe handlebars are very little use for turning but great to
stabilise the trike.  Also I was previously worried about crashing if my
feet slipped from the pedals, but this gives another means of control. So
look out!  I'm now cruising!!  Cheers Howard
