    Question About Chair Tipping

    I have a Tilite ZRA, it has a 4" dump but it still tips a little bit when i push too hard. does this mean that i need to decrease the center of gravity or increase it?

    As I know it a chair's center of gravity (COG) is changed by moving the rear wheels. To decrease the tendency to tip, move the rear wheels rearward.

    or you can raise the front casters. This will lower the front of the chair and also change the balance.

    I like the chair tippy. I can just lean back a little when I go up a curb instead of doing a wheelie all the time I am crossing the streets.
