    Try a Roho for a while. Pressure lift like mad, every 15min, at least, like freaking clock work (I can fully lift my ischials by leaning far forward with elbows on knees when lifting isn't...

    Sounds quite a lot like the polymer insert on the lock nut is losing friction. That part itself might be old or defective, even though the locks themselves are fairly new. I'd replace that lock nut...

    I had issues like that after many years of use. The nut that holds the lever has some form of rubber grommet inside of it that wears out or hardens over time. I found a replacement at Home Depot...

    "Epi-pen" for spinal for injury

    So, I don't frequent this sub forum often. Not the type to be overly interested in cure research. I mean, sure, it'd be great, but I've...

    Wow. Not a quad but I haven't fallen in over 10 years. Just jinxed myself I'm sure.

    No idea. Sometime within the next couple months at the most. It's a weekend project so we only really have a handful of hours each week. Could be done in a couple weeks of full-time focus but...

    Denials have codes just like procedures and diagnoses. Your provider would know what denial code was returned on the initial claim, if the folks at the payer are too hard to deal with. I bet it was...

    Don't forget another reduction to CDC operating budget in his latest federal budget proposal.

    But, it's probably a huge global Illuminati conspiracy to hide the truth. Yeah. That's it.

    Probably but it's hard to say for 100% certain without a lot more detail about the parts. Worst case you might need to order a longer set of axle pins. I dunno if Spinergy make 508. They might. ...

    Just use a couple/few 1/8" split washers on the axle pin itself. You can slide them right off if you want but the quick release detents keep them on when you don't.

    Exactly. Spacers are the only way other than running everyday wheels farther out, which is highly undesirable. Yes, push rings are farther from top of wheels but I'm usually using gloves and the...

    I don't miss them either. Had them on my first chair for a few years then switched to Unitines for the past 10 years and haven't had any desire to go back.

    I use Maxxis Holy Rollers on a standard 1" wide rim. They're like 2.65" wide. They're on a 508 rim though. They match 559 with Marathons perfectly in outer diameter.

    That's not really "intermittent" if you're doing it everyday, is it? That's a regular diet/caloric intake restriction. The functionality of 'intermittent fasting' is only truly realized if you're...
