    After your post I looked at your thread and the Oracing looks interesting. I checked the link provided and the F2 and F2-V along with the Extreme Box are the most appealing. Would I be able to get one of these in Canada?

    Btw, I totally agree with your take on Lasher. Though I love the backrest hardware.
    The rigidizer on mine will not be angled upward, like on Toto's Oracing chairs.

    The reason under-the-frame rigidizers are bent is so that the sag of a traditional nylon seat sling won't hit into it. Obviously, it wouldn't be good to be perched on the rigidizer. With a mostly rigid CF pan, however, there's no reason to bend it. Still, mine will be welded at the bottom border of the 1.25" seat frame (i.e., not centered in the tubing) to ensure that there will be adequate clearance to pass the cables from the Surelock system over it.

    Does TiLite know that? If you selected "Omit Seat Upholstery" they will still drill the frame and add riv-nuts. I discovered this when one of my colleagues mistakenly selected "Omit Seat Upholstery" instead of "Omit Back Upholstery"...

    Thanks. Good to know. I mentioned this several times, but I'll shoot them an email just to make sure.

    Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the upward angle, but an arc'd vs bent bar like yours (and the new TE they had at Expo) is a great aesthetic change, IMO.

    I ordered a 1.5" tapered seat frame, so I don't think they'd drill holes as default unless I spec'd for a solid seat pan, which I did not. I have an email into Josh just to make sure.

    Thanks also for the photo you posted in another thread re the new positioning of the frame struts (stalks as you call them) relative to the COG spec. That was an important heads up. The struts on mine will, I hope, be perfectly aligned with the camber clamps.

    There's always some wrinkle you can't anticipate.

    You are getting a CAD right?

    No problem, just PM if you are interesting in one.

    The tube you have under your seat need to be a bit bend for the strips of the seat can do their work.
    When do you think we are going to see your sweet chair?

    BTW, of course Stephen`s ZR series 2 is going to be an exception because his one is going to be a full welded, i think this new ZR series 2 have done a lot of damages to tilite, if i was them i will take it out of the market and do a new one, even with a new name, ZRS for example lol.
    Don`t make the same mistakes with your new TR guys.
