    This sounds ridiculous. TiLite offers the first CAD drawing for free with a wheelchair purchase. I actually believe they prefer you to sign-off on a drawing. It protects them as well as the purchaser...

    The TiLite form says any center of gravity ordered with less than 3.5" will have the square back frame. When I ordered my TR3 in 2012, I had the COG set to 3.5" with a special note to Sportaid to...

    Your ZRA's 16x16 seat size is probably the most popular width and depth for adults. I see lots of demo chairs this size (I see even smaller with 15" width). I have a ZR that size and I'm 5'10"...

    I doubt that fork stem is threaded in place, especially with that set screw design. I would think it is pressed in place, possibly with a fluted design shaft. I'd bet that TiLite's warning not to...
