    That is a nice looking chair, I wish I could demo one. I have never been in a WC with suspension and am not sure I would like it. Doesn't having movement back there make you feel a little unstable? Toto, you have ridden this thing right? Are you going to switch to a chair with suspension?

    I didn`t have try it yet, I`m not going to Oracing factory until next summer but probably i will never go for a chair with suspension, i don`t like extra weight in things i don`t really need, specially because i pick up the chair in&out the car many times a day.
    Seriously, suspension for be in front of the PC? for be working in the office? for go down 3-4 little curbs a day? suspension was designed for other things.
    So i want something: good, cool and light, that`s all.
    And about my suspension needs i`ve got enough with my seat and the cushion.

    Didn't we just have this conversation? LOL

    Seems that those of us who have 'em love 'em. Those who don't, don't.

    right... like those custom Mavic wheels?

    a 0.5lb air shock + frame linkage doesn't add much weight.

    food for thought: a pair of jeans weighs 3-5lbs.

    Hey! You are the Marvel/Icon advocate. Do you use a suspension chair all the time? What are your thoughts on the pros vs/ cons.

    i have a Marvel M1 and i have used it everyday for over 2 years now. it has been a trouble free chair for me and have yet to replace anything. i keep it in suspension mode almost all the time. the only time i turn off the shock is when i am carrying a load on my lap of 25lbs. or more. its a tad heavy but so are other equivalent box frame non suspension chairs once u add all your goodies. i have the larger of the Marvel frames. i am 6'3" and my weight averages between 185 and 195 depending on the season, lol. chair weight is not so important to me as it may be to others.
