    I removed mine a few days ago. Haven't hit a door jamb since. Pulling up to kitchen sink at an angle, I can reach faucet easier. Has nothing to do with chair forward facing cabinets.

    I'll remove my tipper wheels and bracket soon. The F3 is more rear heavy than any other chair I've had. Tried to make tippers touch, braking down ramp. Can't make 'em touch.
