    TR3 Inormation - READ

    Read this before you purchase a TR3. I have not changed a single thing on the chair delivered to me other then keep adding air into tires. HOWEVER, last night now for the 2nd time in last few weeks the chair catapulted me onto floor. No biggie. I can get up. THE DESIGN WOL, L ALLOW YOU TO SIT IN CHAIR, FEET ON FOOTREST AND ENOUGH BODY WEIGHT PAST CENTERLINE OF FRONT WHEELS AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU ARE ON THE FLOOR. CHAIR EVEN FLIPS FORWARD AND IS UPSIDE DOWN.

    You need to adjust your COG forward some.

    It's not the design, it's the configuration.

    TR3 is a phenom of a chair.

    I'm no TiLite fan-boy, far from it, but this is simply a configuration mistake.

    Who helped you spec it out?

    I like the chair. I do a lot of leaning in just about all directions. All the way down to both hands be on floor at same time. COG forward would change, but I probably be falling backwards more than the 2 times forward. I easily temporarily alter weight. For example, pick up and carry trash bag. Even my dog. The dynamics of where the weight is sitting on the chair is extremely flexible. There are no tippers and never would use them I physically alter a lot of the weight position based on location of where I am and what I am doing. Is what I am saying here a "too bad for me, I just need to learn" type situation? Even if I were to move COG of rear wheel forward, this still has to do with where that weight is relative to the front wheel.

    Maybe your just an idiot? I sit on the very front edge of my chair all the time and never have any problem tipping forward. You seem to know so much about wheelchair design, COG, and all that crap, you should know it has nothing to do with the chair, it's the configuration.

    Ouch. Honey vs vinegar man. Wasn't this guy in a coma and suffered a TBI?

    He's on his own, purchased his chair on his own so many be he just doesn't know. Cut some slack, geez.
