    Sorry to dig up an old thread but having this problem and even more confused about what screw and nut I should get after reading the discussion! Can anyone clarify? Planning to try and replace all...

    A custom build! But that's not on the menu so trying to find a Helium configuration that works.

    One of my problems was that my RSH was too low for fendered side guards but turns out you can't have...

    That's a potentially great solution!

  4. Quickie Helium for wee legs and arms

    So, there's a chance my OT is going to order me a Quickie Helium to replace my ageing ZRA.
    I've been doing my research ahead of my follow up appointment. I'm only 5'1" so haven't got very long legs...

    Applying thread locker

    Having been very brave and taken bits of my chair apart, I'm now faced with putting it back together. I have sachets of Vibra Tite VC3 for my caster bolts but I'm a bit clueless about how best to...

    Great news! Congratulations! I feel like you should be having an official launch party and a cake after all this time...
  7. Thank you!

    Thank you!

    This is probably a terrible idea in the long run but I've been able to swap over the forks and, so far, they hold. Having the dodgy housing on one side and the matching dodgy bolt on the other. Going...
  9. Squaring Frogs Legs forks on a series 1 ZRA

    Having had to take it all apart in an attempt to find a temporary fix to my wrecked caster housing I'm now trying to put it back together. It's really unclear how to square the casters. The old...

    No way! I'm currently dealing with the same failure but I have Frogs Legs.
    I just ordered some Vibra-Tite and hoping that'll give a temporary fix for light use. No cobbled streets until it's...

    If you do any traveling how about this? http://mywheelchaircaddy.com/ This is very high on my wish list but very expensive

    That's the thing I worry about breaking! It's a very cool feature though. If I demo one I'll let you know what I make of it.

    Spinergy Maintenance

    So it looks like I'll be having new pushrims fitted to my Spox wheels. The wheels were used when I got them so I should probably take the opportunity to make sure they're in the best condition...

    Trabasack is a great choice. I love mine. I'm not sure about the US but in the UK they sell various extras you might want to add. I don't have one but I would like the Media Mount...

    Thanks folks.

    Yes I do Lin. I've looked at the thumb rings but I just can't work out how they make it easier. Maybe I push my chair weird! Can you try and explain?

    Good tip on the Q-Grips...

    Interesting. Have you seen one? I'd be a bit concerned about repairs to that folding mechanism but it looks like it could fit the bill. Also, what do I do with it if they can't take it in the cabin?...
  17. Stick with Silicon Covers or get Surge LT?

    Following an injury I had to fit Silicon Pushrim Covers. I probably always needed them but I didn't think the weight and cost of replacing them would be worth it. Wrong!

    The extra grip has made...

    Obviously I can't speak specifically for Chicago but a smaller expo isn't necessarily bad. It just depends what you're looking for. If you know most of the things you would like to look at/try will...

    I do keep an eye on eBay but it's difficult as I'm short and nothing I've seen so far would work for my wee legs. My current chair only fits with the footrest adjusted as far as it would go....

    I mostly use antibacterial wipes. I don't know how good/bad that is!

    Thanks for the great links! I've found it surprisingly difficult to find good information on chair maintenance. I know I don't...

    It depends how unstable your wrist/hand joints are. Many hypermobile people seem to manage canes but I've never been able to do it. My physiotherapist gave me one initially and I didn't even get to...

    Hmm. That's kinda what I thought. It's the ability to take my chair onboard an aircraft that really appeals. I know I wouldn't get to do it every journey but it does make a big difference when you're...

    Lin, this EDSer can't use anything other than full cuff crutches either. I can't even work out how people use half cuff and sticks. My hands and wrists just won't do it!
  24. I have a ZRA. Would I hate a 2GX/TX?

    My ZRA was second hand and feels like it has more than a few years left in it. In fact, when I enquired about trying out a Quickie Xenon for travel a salesman told me I had something almost...

    Thanks folks. After a bit of trial and error I worked out that putting my toes together but my heels apart works for me. When my knees are particularly painful I strap them up a bit like IsMaisin...
