    It's fun. Use the crop frame cameras and lenses because they are lighter than the full frame.

    I lowered the door by lowering the concrete. Wasn't as big a job as it may seem. The more time consuming part is adding to both interior and exterior walls to fill the gap that is created when you...

    Getting Marathons on is a pain. But how often? Annually? So what if it takes longer with more difficulty? Worth dealing with the pain once a year (if that) to never have a flat. Besides, with the...

    Thanks. I recall when my injury was new, the details of the chair weren't so important. I little too tall, short, heavy... so what? Today, dialing it in matters greatly.

    Well you're the expert so you know better than me. I based that comment on my searches. There aren't any minivans for sale beyond a certain age. Whereas there are plenty of older full size vans for...

    Parking can be a pain in a full size van. But it's not as bad as it seems as long as you're not in a densely populated metropolis like NYC or San Francisco. You'd be fine in most parts of LA because...

    Good idea to do that all the time. Because only the manufacturer's quote is the controlling document. All else is for reference. I found out the hard way.

    Don't limit your choices to a minivan. Consider a full size van. There is just enough room to turn in a minvan. But unless your coordination is flawless, you're going to be hitting the walls and...

    Correct. But the DME never provides you the manufacturer's quote so the customer will likely proceed on the order form, which is essentially blind faith. I guess you could ask for the manufacturer's...

    Another thing to watch. The order form, the DME quote and the manufacturer quote are not all necessarily the same. Which one prevails? The answer depends on who you are talking to. Of course, you...

    I have heard of helicopter tape. That would make it much easier to maintain the paint. Although I never asked for paint, the silver lining on that cloud is that it would be cool to have a painted...

    Thanks. That's very useful info. The bigger issue than the paint is the weight. I can't see an adjustable chair being lighter than a non-adjustable chair. I was considering living with the paint. But...

    You got that right. I asked how much heavier this chair is. He replied not much. Website says frame is 2 lbs heavier. That may not seem like much to him lifting it up while he’s standing and using...

    I don't know the amount of time you have. But do it soon. Mine corroded and the fork had to be hammered off the stem. I didn't even take it into a pool. It was just from an outdoor shower by the...

    The first thing is what they said - start as AeroT and upgrade. The last DME who ordered the chair I am in right now also said the same thing. As expected, I got a TR3. So there was no need for...

    Vigilance only goes so far. There are some things that you have to trust. For example, we agreed on a TR3 so why did the order form say Aero T? He said something about TR3 orders have to be processed...

    The DME took it back. They gave me the weekend to think about keeping it or sending it back to TiLite to exchange for a titanium finish.

    Does anyone have a painted chair that looks good anymore?...

    After 2+ years, they finally delivered my wheelchair. Everything seems fine except one thing. They painted the titanium black. It looks pretty cool. But that paint is never going to hold up. Last...

    Whatever the cause, it's clear that you have to cut out some of the strip so that it can lay flat before you glue it down.

    I lifted the strip up so that I could clean the strip and rim with some rubbing alcohol before applying the glue. When I did this, there was almost no resistance. It just peeled off easily. The force...
