    Medicare has no guidance on frame material other than they won't pay for it twice (e.g. as a K0108 'upgrade').

    They consider material irrelevant and already baked into the base reimbursement...

    Battery life and ease of use, equally top priority. The rest is equally medium important. Except hills and off road. Has to do hills else it won't compete in the market, so medium-high, and a...

    Yeah it sounded a bit unreasonable. Thanks for clarifying.

    Warranty doesn't cover dropping down off curbs? Or wheelie hopping up them? That's a deal breaker, if that's a chair breaker. If it can't do at least what every other chair can do, hard to call it...

    Backrest specs are measured to the floor, not the seat base. Raising the front and rear by the same amount doesn't change back angle to floor.

    Absolutely. Those straps would undoubtedly be helpful to a quad. Normal pants with straps pls. ;)
  10. Right, backrest and caster angles would be same...

    Right, backrest and caster angles would be same if doing both ends. It's as I said, it's because only half the difference in total diameter generates the drop in height because the wheels attach at...

    Also, changing your rear seat height will require changing the backrest angle and front height to get exactly back to the same relative seating position and pushing mechanics. It's an integrated...

    No. Reducing it by half the difference maintains the same arm to hub/pushrim/top of wheel mechanics. Because the wheel is connected to the chair in the center of the wheel, only half the difference...

    Hmmmmmmm. I don't what you'd call that 'style' but my first gut reaction was 'ridiculous'. It takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, though, and I'm certainly no fashionista. A hard pass...

    They cannot, unless the design has changed since I bought them. Spinergy spokes can be tightened though. Should have come with a tool.

    1.5" of dump seems a little shallow for a C5 quad with zero trunk control. I'm a T12 and I'm most comfortable with 2.5". Have you tried a chair setup like that already and figured out that's...

    Yep. As the guy who kicked the whole thing off, I was mostly being tongue-n-cheek. I don't hate cats, but I do strongly dislike them when they pop my $500 cushion. ;)

    Not sure of the exact question, but for every 1" diameter difference you'll only get .5" of ride height difference. Important when trying to figure out ride height difference based on diameter...

    Cats. I hate cats. So does my Roho.

    I'm patching my Roho for the 4th freaking time on account of cats loving to hang out on my chair, when I'm not in it, and popping the air cells when they jump off. I hate cats.
