Been in the icon for a few days now. Damn the shock is like night and day. I never had been in one with a shock, except for a marvel for like 5 min. It absorbs everything. I am waiting on a cushion that fits the chair cause mines is a bit too wide. The brakes are a little tricky. I've hit my fingers a bunch of times when unlocking. I wish it had arm rests as I am used to them and use them to get dressed. Also the side gaurds are a lil too long for my preference. they come out further than the tires so the transfers are a bitch right now. But all in all the chair is good. Just gotta work on those issues on mine and it will be all good...
Thanks for the update. Glad to hear about the shock, I'm hoping for the same experience. I'm planning to make it really soft and if I want, harden it up later. But at first I just want to lose all the jolts. Not sure I understand what's happening with your brakes, do you have the scissor wheel locks? On my Tilite if I don't have them adjusted right they get loose and ride out a little and yeah, I can jam my fingers and it hurts like hell. I became a fanatic with checking them, pushing them back in and flush again. I check them so often I don't even notice doing it anymore.
I liked the sideguards when I tried them. Haven't lived with them yet so I don't know. I have been concerned about the sharp edges. Jeff says they are putting some trim on them now. Does yours have the trim? I hope you figure something out with transferring. I don't know if yet if that's going to be a problem for me, I'm a walker but I do push off the chair every time I transfer. I'll see.
Please keep updating and enjoy the ride. :-)
