    After riding on this chair for a day and a half, this is my review:

    1. Smooth
    2. Solid
    3. Stable
    4. Well balance
    5. But the frame is not as lightweight as I thought. I can't lift it up with one hand(like totoL1 did), even with two hand is still quite difficult for me.
    6. I like the natural fit handrim very much, but disadvantage is that it burn my hand, going down slope even worse.

    Over all, still quite statisfy with this chair, I will write more review for this chair.
    Life is meaningles, though you create the purpose.

    The natural fit rims, antitippers, seat cushion, side guards, and arm rests all add a lot of weight. The frame really is quite light. When I got my first chair it had all of those, the antitippers went first, then the side guards, and after about 6 months, i ditched the arm rests - THEN I had a light chair! I always use gloves for pushing and stopping when I'm outside.

    I told you time ago, GTI is one of the heavier ultralights, i tried it, it was ok but a bit heavier if we compared with others, but anyway a good one, enjoy!

    So, you can`t do this with your chair?

    wow, I can't do that with a hand, how light is your chair ?
    even as I take off the wheel is still heavy, loading to car is troublesome.
    But I remember, when I tried the demo chair it is not as heavy as now.

    I take off everything is still heavy like anything, still prefer Tilite, really light.
    I should take Q7, when the insurance offer me.
    But I consider the durability, so choose GTi.

    haha...its not the question of how light it is.look at his biseps and triceps.twice as big as mine...still, i can lift my TR with a hand, but need my elbow as a fulcrum...i guess toto did the same.his elbow is at the tire.but still, i cant lift it high like that, and not to mention, i cant even hold it for 10 secs.just enough to lift it into the car...

    Yep, is a combination of an ultralight chair and a bit strong guy.

    Well, this is not me and is another ultralight.

    I normally stay in the chair and lift the bench.
