Aron Ralston is considering a shock absorber so he can still go mountain biking. He's also thinking of other attachments so he can keep climbing, and a hook on the gearshift of his pickup so he can keep his left hand on the wheel.
The 27-year-old mechanical engineer is recovering at his parents' home in Centennial and working out on a stationary bike after five surgeries and two weeks in the hospital. He'll get a prosthetic arm in one month.
Ralston was hiking alone in southeastern Utah April 26th when an 800-pound boulder pinned his right arm.
He used a pocketknife to remove the arm five days later.
