history & design target
I’m Tom from ExcelCycleWerkes.com — and, as you might expect, after creating many “riding enhancements”, and as the riding miles built up, some form of throttle control was the next venture. I rode with almost all of the available devices over time, but each had it’s own plus and minus — they just didn’t do it for me. Most needed two hands to “get it set”; then, it also “locked” the throttle. Not cool.
My goal was to have a throttle control device that would “hold speed”, was easily “on” and “off”, and be adjustable for throttle rotation tension while in use. When “disengaged” or “off”, the throttle returns to a normal rotation operation. The Excel Throttle Control does not lock the throttle and can be easily over ridden at any time with a minimum of effort. Since the unit retains its previous setting, it can be engaged and disengaged repeatedly without having to readjust the amount of end pressure.
