my first titanium chair will arrive tomorrow. i decided on Quickie instead of ti sport for availibility of parts. Also,frame diameter is excessive on Ti sport. Previous two chairs has been Kuschall which is no longer marketed in the U.S. I have been reading posts for quite awhile but this is my first post. i look forward to being part of this wonderful and informative community. Cheers!

Can you elaborate a bit on what difference you found between Quickie and Ti?
When you say more available parts, you mean that Quickie enables more/better customizations and/or adjustability in chairs?
What do you mean by Excessive frame on Ti sport?
Any other feedback on Ti or other brand chairs would be great!

Quickie has been around much longer and has larger market base,so naturally parts will be easier to obtain. Titanium is supposedly a very strong alloy.I question if the additional frame thickness on the Ti Sport is really necessary? The Quickie has much more adjustment than Ti Sport. I am waiting for pediatric hard plastic clothes guard since it is level with the tires. The adult clothes guards rise above the tires, uneven. It should help with scoliosis by keeping the roho cushion and right theigh from rubbing on the tires. Fabric clothes guard are useless.I would like a Kuschall titanium; unfortunately, Invacare only markets it in Europe. The Quickie will be my outdoor chair and my main source of excercise and transportation. It will be punished! I will keep you abreast how it holds up. Cheers!

The Quickie Titanium is the chair I have. It is my first chair, so I don't really have much to compare it to other than the Breezy I came home in. http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif But, for the few months I have had it I have been staisfied with it. It has been good to me. Good luck with it! Hope you are as happy with it I have been.

I have a Quickie Wheelchair, and LOVE it. I have been in Sports for a Very Long time, and 90% of the chairs used are Quickie. They are Really Tough, for Sport, And Daily life, I have Two models. One is the Complete Sports Chair, and the other just a model before it, built for leiser/Sports. I LOVE the quickie, they are Light Chairs, and VERY Fast.
