    I'm sure you had a therapist spec it out for you, right?

    What a absolutely awesome chair!

    The aesthetic benefit you envisioned by going with 1.25" backrest tubing and the ovalized rigidizer bar wasn't totally clear until I saw the finished product. WOW!

    The extra inch on the footrest depth is something I've thought about for end users who have significant clonus and as a way to keep one's feet from popping off the front (especially with the tubular footrest).

    I'm interested to hear how it compares to your ZRc as well as you Hall's.

    Such an understated title for your thread.

    The frame of the ZR2 is 1" narrower (15" wide in the rear) and 1" longer than my ZRc. With the 1.5" seat taper and the 1.25" tubing, the width between the front frame is 11", so my legs are closer together, which is what I wanted. The extra inch in length (the ZR2 is 17", the ZRc is 16") gives greater front-to-rear stability. (The seat pan is 16.5" deep.)

    I discovered that my Halls chair, which is nominally 16" deep, is an inch longer than my ZRc, also nominally 16". Not knowing my Schulte dimension way back when, I didn't appreciate the difference between the two setups. As for comparing the Halls and the ZR2, it's a little too soon to say, but they're roughly equivalent. The ZR2 has me sitting more compactly, so that's a plus. And the orange/copper accents suit me.

    I'd like to give shout-outs to Doug Garven at TiLite. The cool fin-shaped side guards were patterned after those that he designed for some of his earlier chairs. Without them the chair wouldn't fit me properly without them; my legs would be brushing up against the wheels.

    . . . And Marcus Falhgren of Central Composites, who sketched out and made the side guards and seat pan for me. He did a great job.

    . . . And Josh Anderson at TiLite was a total pleasure to work with from start to finish.

    The carbon fiber is sweet. Nice chair. Do you take in in and out of a car? I love the backrest, but don't think I could get that chair in and out of my mini.

    Thanks. I don't own a car, I'm a NYC public transportation guy. On those occasions when I travel by car or cab I have my butler (my building doorman OR my wife) load the chair.
