I just got a new Quickie Ti and was wandering if anyone had any problems with it? I had a Tilite TRA for the past 5 years.

I have a friend with one and she hasn't had any major complaints.

I'm adjusting to the differance between my old chair and this one ok. My brakes are located different (under the seat) but at least I'm not crunching my hand in them. I got the push handles that fold down, and it weighs lighter that the old one. So far it's working just fine.

I have been in a quickie for the past four years simply. I think they make some of the the best wheelchairs on the market.

Thanks for the replys.
I really like the chair. It's lighter than my old Tilite TRA. It came with small casters so I changed them to larger ones. It rolls a lot beter on the ground with the large casters. I still have my old TRA. I'm going to use it for hunting/fishing so I don't get the good chair muddy.Might even paint it.

i don't really like it. the adjustability seems like a real pain, and then it creaks and croaks at the joints and stuff. oh well.
I love my Quickie Ti.It handles very well.

I'm going to copy this to the Equipment Forum as the info is useful to people over there.

i think, in general, quickies are over priced junk

King is right....invest in a good set of torx wrenches. I broke mine the first week I had my quickie titanium. Broke a Craftsman tool just this morning too! Now it's stuck inside the screw and we don't know if we can get it out. I had to adjust the seat height due to shoulder problems, which in turn, threw my foot height out of whack. The guy at the shop advised me to buy Craftsman so they can be replaced for free....guess I'm on my way to Sears this weekend!
In the meantime, I have to take more time off work to take it to the shop so they can see if they can get the wrench out, if not they need to order a new part ($$$$ because I broke it - not covered under warranty). What a pain!

You and King have a good idea. The torx screws are a PAIN. I think I will change out those torx screws to a different kind like phillips, or hex screws. Then I can use my screw gun with the proper bit. Of course I could just get a torx bit.

I am getting a Quickie Ti and am a huge fan of the chair. I looked into the tilite chairs and felt the quickie was right fit for me. If you get it measured right there are generally very few problems. As with all chairs, I reccomend getting them into a local dealer before the warranty is up. This is most important for sizing issues. Be sure, as others said, to buy a good mwrench set(quickie sell a good set with the chair).
As far as the creaking mentioned, the problem is usually solved by cleaning and greasing all the axle fittings, caster assembly, etc. Many times dirt gets around there and causes the creaking.
Good luck with the new chair.
