    Firefly

    Hi.

    Have someone a firefly? i was thinking in buy one of this firefly
    I know this brand because i have tried a dragonfly and the quality was ok so this one probably will be good stuff too.
    Looking at the video i could leave my car at home a lot of times.

    I know 4 people in my city that use and love them. They can cruise around all day, and then when you need to go in a shop you can just take it off the chair and leave it at the door. Great idea especially if there are lots of hills where you are going.

    I have tried a demo of a Firefly in my own chair today, i just can say WOW, WOW and WOW, this thing is absolutly fantastic, i had a long ride in the city and when i went back to the shop for give them back the Firefly and i went out of the bike shop pushing again my wheels i felt like a primitive pushing a wheelchair.
    So i have ordered one, the wheelchair dosen`t need any adaptaion, just a few clamps in the front tubes.

    My husband also demo'd one, and it was great. For the price, I think it's a wonderful piece of equipment, and there is nothing comparable in it's price range. In our perfect world we would have a ZX1 power add-on and a Firefly for going distances. Just need to win the lottery next week;-)

    At 2 grand, you can hardly beat it with the SMARTDRIVE and the ZX1 from Spinergy comming out around 7 thousand bucks. Looks like fun and it can go pretty far.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    Yep, i think that for the price there is nothing that can beat it, even it can go backwards and i`m getting it at a low price, in con has that only can be used by paras, and even i think for fixed to your chair and take it out you will need a good trunk control, for me was really easy put it on&out of my chair, but i`m L1.

    You probably go faster downhill in your chair than with the fly attached.
    Enjoy!!
