We also have user-friendly anti-tips on the ZRA, which we had just enough room for on the camber tube with the ZX-1. We did have a problem with the anti-tilt mechanism hitting the back release bar. This is because our rigidizer bar is quite low. We have the 4? Deep Backrest Rigidizer Bar, with it's height at 6? above the seat sling. At the time it was not not an option for the ZRA to specify a Custom Height Backrest Rigidizer Bar, but if we could have, we would have wanted it at about 7-8" to avoid the anti-tilt mechanism. Here is a photo showing the brackets, anti-tips and anti-tilt mechanism:

I don't have nor use the anti tilt setup Spinergy has on their units. Well, I have it but have not installedit on the unit.
