    I'm curious to know, after some seat time or first impressions, if you notice the change going from 16" to 15" ADI back very much?

    Sure you could.

    Very nice chair Stephen,a full welded chair!! sure that one don`t give any problems, i just miss an attached calf strap, but if you don`t use it, no reason for put it.
    Sure you will never go back without sideguards again.

    Enjoy in it, have a nice time in Paris

    Back in the day, I seem to recall a CareCure regular received a cf camber tube that had a loose camber plug. He posted his concerns about it and TiLite's QC processes in this forum. The ensuing inferno sparked by that thread raged for nearly 2 months and exceeded 200 posts.

    Knowing who would be getting the chair, do you think they quadruple checked your cf camber tube and everything else before shipping it?

    Before getting the ZR2 my Halls has been my everyday and it's 14" wide. It has an old Jay Xtreme backrest, which is contoured very differently from the ADI (and Roho), but so far I'm finding the 15" wide ADI very comfortable.

    I discussed the issue with Josh Anderson when we met at the Abilities Expo. He showed me a CF camber tube which now has pinned camber plugs, so even should the epoxy fail (and hopefully that won't happen), the plug will stay put.

    Steverino, nice, nice chair! Cool color scheme, looks sturdy and compact. Too nice to take on a NYC subway

    The reason I requested the 1.25" backrest tubing wasn't for its aesthetics, though I do like the way it looks. It was for practical reasons. Doug Garven sent me a photo of his fixed-back ZR2 and I noticed that his sideguards screwed flush into the side of the back posts without interference from the ADI back hardware.

    The ADI 1.25" mounting hardware does not encircle the tubing; unlike their 1" mounting hardware, the outside third of the tubing is left exposed. A small but essential detail.

    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).
    The Halls chairs came with 7" deep open toe footrests as standard. I don't get clonus much these days but my feet would still slide off the rear of the footrest on my ZRc and this never happened with my Halls. Once I discovered the depth discrepancy I had a new 7" open toe footrest made for the ZRc and problem solved.

    Thanks, Smokester. It would like nicer in a casino, but I'd wind up losing it playing craps.

    I really like this latest version of the backrest frame attachment hardware.

    Seriously, could not be more impressed. That chair would last me a lifetime. I wish I had as much faith as you have had with Ti, if I could've put up with the width of my ZRa until now I highly doubt I'd be sitting in a Lasher. Next gov't paid chair for me will be a ZR212.
