    Get hold of Brian at: http://www.ideamobility.com/ He's a quad and and use to make his own quick releases. Might let you use the wheels you have.

    Curious...why is it hard to take the Round Betty Dino's off compared to the Spinergy's? It should not be any different between the them. Do you think it might have something to do with your Quick release axles?

    WTF, I agree with BFD and Erick - the problem is most likely your axle release, not the wheel. Get quad release axles rather than push button. I found them here: http://assistivetech.net/search/prod...oduct_id=47453

    All Great information above

    Hi wtf follow your gut instincts if you feel comfortable with your old rims then use them .
    All you may need is simple spoke adjustments ( Truing them ) at your local bike shop it is cheap .
    Good luck
    Sincerely '

    You also might try just using the same quick release axles you have on your Spinergy's with the Dino's. I use this type of quick release lever in the attached picture and it works well for me. pm me if you are interested in getting a set.

    I use quick release axles (I'm a quad.) Ever since I hurt my arm, I haven't been using it as much and I've really noticed how weak I've become when I tried to take my round betty's off. I do use the same quick release axles for my dino's that were on my spinergy's, I did have to adjust them tho. Is your lever quad friendly, can I put a finger in the hole? Thanks

    Yes..they work good for quads. They are what I use and I'm also a quad.You can put your finger in the hole and pull them off.

    Ok, cool. I think those would work better for pulling them off. Are they on your website?
