    New unitine forks and casters

    Hi everybody! Haven't posted here in a while but I thought I'd post what I've just done to my chair. It already was a blue anodized package ZRA2 with green Dino wheels and Natural fit handrims. Today I was able to put gold Froglegs unitine forks with red 4x1.4" casters. Next up are some Surelocks. Just look at what the scissor locks are doing to my tires. F*****G discusting...! Keep you posted. 'Later guys! Not sure how to rotate that.

    Putting way too much pressure of them. Been looking to get Sure locks for a while.

    Why don't you adjust your brakes if you don't like it? Just adjust them forward for less pressure.

    I don't use marathons, is it normal for them to be able to be depressed like that? I thought the protection stuff was pretty firm? I know with my right runs they'd have to be under inflated to be compressed like that, the scissor locks will pop back off before going that far.

    I believe that is a 3/16" allan key needed to loosen the brake clamp and adjust them as necessary, be sure to do so with fully inflated tires, that way when the brakes begin to slip you know your tire pressure is low.

    btw, did Ronald McDonald House donate your chair to you? What's up with every color? Make sure you get purple anodized Surelock hubs.

    you weren't a rodeo clown ever were you? lol..

    It's definitely a one-off, no one will ever mix up your chair if your flying with a group of chair users. Actually I don't mind it, the rainbow seems to flow.. I've seen guys buy all one color but none of them actually match perfectly because of variations in the anodization process from each manufacturer.

    I've always liked the red frog leg soft roll casters, they hide the dirt and look great when spiffed up. I run a polished chair (from push-bar to casters) but keeping it brilliant is something that I get awfully sick of doing.. Mother's aluminum cleaner works great but is time consuming.
