    It's one of the first things I change in any chair I get from Tilite. You can fine-tune the tightness of the wheel.
    Hey Patrick, That seems like a good idea and well worth the try.

    By the way, If I were to design a chair, I would get rid of all the sharp edges. My Quickie Ti is loaded with sharp edges all over the chair, from the caster fork edges to hardware. These sharp edges tear up stuff, especially a car. When I first took a close look at the TiLites, I noticed that they have no sharp edges, anywhere. It's all smooth. Then I thought, if they pay this much attention to detail, I want that chair.

    NO CHUNKY! ONLY SMOOTH!

    Rookie mistake.

    Next you need to get a camel. Nothing gets peanut butter out of a wheelchair like a camel. Let me know when it's all cleaned up and we can try this again.

    I took a camel to Vegas. He was very reliable through the Mojave.

    Does a camel ever look down and say, "Damn I got pussy foot"?
