I know you have alot more mobility than me, so what was the reason you switched sideguard shape?
    I use the sideguards exactly for the same as you, i sit on them for be higher for pick things.

    But in reality i did them because with them you`ve got better sideguards with less weight, the profile tube weight very little, specially in this last version, but give the enough rigidity to the sideguard, i don`t know the thickness of CF that Oracing put on yours, but i just have 1mm of CF in my sideguards, so they are lighter than a any other CF sideguards of the market with all the hardware they need.

    This brakes are far superior than any others i have tried.
    About the weight, i didn`t weighted yet, but the weight of my chair is not the really weight, because this is like a reinforced version i designed for me, and i didn`t think much in the weight of the frame, the std frame will weight around an ich less or more than mine.
    My L tubes are the same used in basket chairs, 1" OD but with the ID is the same used in basket and rugby chairs and the oval tube is the same tube that have in his rugby and basket chair, so as you can imaginate the strenght of this chair in reality is not necessary for a daily chair, i just make it for me without wondering about having an lbs more in my frame weight

    Anyway is very light, very similar than my xtreme box, maybe a few grames more, but not sure yet, some day i will weight the two and see.

    Are not exactly same as quickies, are very similar, but this looks stronger.

    Lin, my understanding is Tilite's "new" Composite Scissor lock is a supposedly-improved version of Quickie’s original, excellent Compact Wheel Lock – where BOTH lever handle and lock bar swing 90º out and aft in unison from forward rest to lock-abeam against the tire ... like yours.

    Well wife and I both have new jobs so both have new insurance so hopefully I can work em into purchasing me a new one. Not that mine is old or anything (2 years and rolling straight), but I've learned that any time you've got a chance to get one paid for by some one else to do it.

    Quickie shows their 'New' Ergo Scissor lock handle and lock bar opposed when locked to tire, in open-scissor vs oldQ/newT always-closed scissor mode. The handle in unlocked mode appears a hard grab but I could be wrong. Anybody?
    mine look the same as the ones Toto pictured when he said to get some from tilite. They swing in and out in unison, the "opening" of the scissors is very small. They are not hard to grab at all. I'm not a quad, but I have peripheral nerve damage in my hands and no issues grabbing them. The only issue I run into is strength wise, but that was before I had a "duh" moment and realized I could adjust them.
