    i use a ZR, the big difference between it and the "T" series is the frame design. I use the z frame because i pop wheels off and put my chair in my car seat, it is easier for me to get around steering wheel with this design. i am very active and the chair sees a lot of abuse,it seems to hold up well.

    I had open frames for quite a while. Went with a Tr this time mainly baecause I like a solid full frame with smaller diameter tubing and it being lighter than the Zr.

    TiLite's published weights show TR as heavier than ZR by 0.6 lbs.

    Yes, but that is the old TR compared with the new ZR, the new TR they are working is going to be under 9lbs, and the SL version probably around 8.5lbs or less.

    Like Patrick, I'm discovering the advantages of the boxy frame. This EVO is feather-light and seems to maximize the push-to-roll ratio imo. It doesn't look as cool as the z frame tho.

    It stands to reason that TiLite will issue a TR Series 2, but have they officially (or unofficially) announced this?
