Thread: NEW Tilite ZRa 2 Series

  1. #31
    While this amount of dump may seem extreme to some, it may be perfect for others. One thing I'll note, which the video provded by Toto bears out, dump such as this may work better for those with longer legs.

    Some of you may have followed my saga last year of ordering a new chair, which was quite different from what I had, the biggest differences being more dump and a tighter leg rest angle. My previous chair had about 2" of dump and my new one has 3-1/2" of dump and I admit ordering the additional dump made me a bit nervous. Well if I had it to do over I would have more dump; not because of balance or the like, but rather for more foot clearance and getting lower into the chair. Those that are shorter will find this easier to achieve.

    One other thing, I have used Jay Active cushions for years yet I am unable to in my new chair because I sit much higher on the cushion, in the back, than on my ROHO; I could lower the rear seat height of my chair by an estimated inch and sit the exact same as I do currently on a ROHO, the perceived dump would be a lot more, but due to cushion differences the result is the same.

    But i think that configuration is rediculous for show your product, that will be even difficult for me to drive uphill with that dump and this COG and i have a perfect control of body with a L1.
    I will bet this chair is for this guy, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD7U1...eature=related look at the dump of his chair, he have pushrims for quads, he don`t fold the backrest for pick it up to the car and he like green.
    i run that much dump. brian is right, by a taller guy like me running 4in dum,p im able to run shorter chairs 16 deep. im 6'2...........and i never fold my backrest either

    Maybe that dump( i think more than 6") are ok for some of you, but that chair with that COG will be very tippy.

    Assuming it was done intentionally, it may serve to distinguish the right from the left wheel. Depending on the tread patterns of the two, there can be a difference between the two. On those occasion when someone other than me puts my wheels on, they often switch the two. Not the end of the world, of course, if that happens, but if there's a more conspicuous way of distinguishing between right and left tires, short of studying tread patterns, maybe a spoke of a different color on one wheel would make it easier to distinguish between them.

    I peeled the Spox decal off my left hub.

    Are you sure it's your left?

    Yes. If I swap wheels, one of the quick release axles won't quite lock in while the other will have a bit more slop. There is either a slight difference in the bearing spacing or the axle sleeve. Rather than risk damaging the bearings trying to correct it, I learned to live with having a left and right wheel.
