I can’t put weight on my left arm because of an old elbow injury that’s led to a disability in the arm—after many surgeries. I’m wondering if anyone rides on their forearms on the center bar and if that’s a feasible way to ride long term. Any advice helpful!

I do sometimes on really long rides! I would say long term I would be worried about back pain but if the handlebars are set a little higher than your seat it might work for long term use!

Depending on your measurements it may be doable - similar to riding on a time trial or triathlon bike in aero bars. If you're using good form on the bike you should actually not be putting much weight on your arms anyway (weight should be over your legs).

In your situation, you may want to avoid standing and pedaling altogether.
