    I have the Surge handrim but don't like it. The rubber wears off on your hands. After about 2 years, the strip started falling off. Once it started, it didn't stop. I would have to repair it just...

    The main difference between the TRA and ZRA is the weight and vibration. The TRA weighs more (0.4 lbs) and the additional tube prevents vibration, which is irrelevant indoors. You may notice more...

    You're lucky. Many people who need instruction let their pride get in the way of accepting it.

    It's easy enough to find good help at top dollar. For occasional work you're probably better off finding the best handyman and paying accordingly. Problem is when it's more than occasional work. It's...
  5. Where do you find help for small jobs around the house?

    A contractor is appropriate for large jobs like a remodel. They'll charge thousands for the job and that's fine. A handyman is appropriate for medium size jobs like installing a ramp. They may charge...

    You'll get a bunch of different answers. I've tried all different types of procedures and find procedure to be forgiving as long as volumes are less than 500 mls and time between IC is less than 4...

    I am getting my baclofen pump replaced ahead of schedule because of the nature of the spasms. Of course, increased spasms does not necessarily indicate a pump failure. But it wasn't spasms as much as...

    The allen screw is to keep the stem (red circle in the figure) attached to the caster tube. TiLite says not to adjust it. Don't know why. I never had a need to and have always left it alone.

    I must have gotten lucky. Because I had to hammer a chisel in between the fork and the dust cap to break it loose.

    The fork assembly was corroded in place. I had to beat it out with a hammer. I just replaced the entire fork assembly. I guess one of these days I'll try to get the bearings out of the old fork...

    Those pants with the higher back are great as long as the material stays in place. But when the material moves out of place they bunch up worse than standard pants because there is more material.

    Has anyone here looked into accessible housing and wheelchair access in general in Mexico? I imagine because Mexico City is so old it probably isn't the best place for wheelchair access. But maybe...

    It's ok. A lot gets lost in writing vs verbal communication. I am all for improvising. We'd be dead in the water without it. You gotta do what you gotta do. What "works" is open for interpretation...

    This really pisses me off how people here pounce on each other. We are here to help each other. That's all I was trying to do. Wasn't some sort of psychological projection as Dale suggests. I don't...

    When I come in from the grill with a plate full of food on my lap, I can't see the track. I can usually estimate good enough and get over it. But if I get a leg spasm at just the wrong time, it can...

    What's the problem? I lived with your type of solution for years and it didn't work for me. I found it to be a hazard. Maybe it works for you because you have larger casters. Maybe your wife or kids...

    Better places to pinch a penny than to have hazards and restrict freedom in your own house. Not only is that a header hazzard, but it's also difficult to carry stuff in your lap over a sliding door...

    Hope you don't have 3" casters. Probably not. They're really only good for the court. I cringe when I see them on an everyday chair, thinking it's just a matter of time until that caster locks up or...

    Looks nice. I am jealous of the mileage. I'm getting 12 MPG. Enjoy.

    By the way, what do you do if you get a flat? Will AAA bring you a wheel? Or do you have to get it towed?

    I wonder how well a CF chair holds up over time compared to a titanium chair? Besides, does Medicare even pay for one? They cost around $3K to start and probably $4K-5K with a lot of options.

    The thing I like about my push-pull hand control is that it enables me to steer with either hand. If you fatigue, you just switch hands.
