    What did you use to cut off the protruding portions of the axle mounts? I've got a lot of excess there, and I think it looks bad in addition to getting in the way.

    I just ordered a dremel, and...

    I had rods and screws removed, only maybe one set of screws were above my level of injury, but the top of the incision definitely was. Recovery was relatively easy. Just a PITA to not be able to...

    Not sure how old you gotta be to be “older”, but I remember back when the site was busy and highly trafficked. This place taught me almost everything I know about how to do this whole cripple thing.

    I think a freewheel would be a cool addition, especially given the tiny casters most Box chairs seem to be sporting (based solely on pictures I've seen).

    I think you're right, WTF though? Why would they make them obviously too wide? It takes some serious force to wedge it in there. Seems like a simple enough fix.

    It's probably 20% harder to push. When on smooth concrete surfaces it feels like I'm pushing on carpet. This is unacceptable to me.
