    I'm opting for the Dino's because it seems like tubular aluminum would be faster than flexible fiber. (Much like an inflated tire is faster than a tire low an pressure.) Will the spokes be interchangeable to different colors?

    Yes you are correct..the Dino's will be much more reponsive and faster rolling. Yes the spokes are interchangeable. Here are some pictures of the spoke color options.

    Will there be different bearing spacing options or is 1.87" all? I'm going to have a quickie gtx and quickies are usually 2.3". Although I don't know if the gtx will be that.

    Are you refering to the wheel hub bearing spacing or axle reciever legnth of the Quickie GTX FOR 2.3 "? Currently 1.87" is the only bearing spacing width available for the Dino [same as Spinergy LX] . You would have no problem putting the Dino's on that chair just a matter of axle adjustment.

    I was just looking at the picture of the wheels again... They look pretty excellent... Found out my chair is supposed to be in before dec 4th. Atleast that's the day I go back to the fitting place to make sure it needs no more adjusting so it better be in by then. Hopefully around thanksgiving? Do you know when these will be available?

    They will be releasing this month [Nov.] so they should be available through dealers around the same time you recieve your chair.
