    I have not personally tried...but all I did was remove the stickers that are on the wheels. They peel off eventually anyways.

    Yea, they were stickers and you can take a hair dryer to em to heat em up and then peel em off and clean off the mess and you're good.

    I love that wheels too, $2340 a pair adapted for wheelchais here in Spain.
    That wheel are an offroad rim, Xentis Kappa.

    I've never seen a Schmicking chair in the flesh. (I have seen one of their handcycles, which has been the inspiration for some of the Top End designs, though not its equal.) According to the person who introduced me to them (an adaptive equipment expert who doesn't post here) Schmicking is at the very top of the heap in terms of build execution and strength, so over its potential many years of service, its value becomes more affordable. That, and the Euro is tumbling. Also, they will build pretty much whatever you want, or so I'm told.

    For anyone who's truly interested in purchasing one, you can get hooked up by contacting Bike-on.com.

    That wheels are not from that chair, you can order that wheels for any wheelchair, you send the hub that your are going to use and they make the wheel with that hub.

    Stephen posted the best pic of that chair, with CF sideguards and Xentis wheels, i don`t think really is so cool, i don`t like it much, but of course is a very good and light chair, the complet weight of the chair with CF side guards, brakes and rear wheels can be under 11.5 lbs.

    Here you can see pics of how is really the chair.
