Hi, newly joined. I can no longer ride a “normal” sit up type bike due to pain from OA in shoulders , neck , spine and hands. I’m not wanting to quite biking and thinking of an electric sit up type bike, however, all the ones I’ve seen involve gear change either using your thumb(painful) or tristgrip(impossible). Anyone got any other ideas for pain free gear change? Thanks
