    You might save time by just pasting the image URL between HTML image tags, (e.g. "[IMG]url goes here[/IMG]" minus the quotes), while you're typing the post up. I host all my own images so this is particularly quicker for me, but also could be for uploading/copying shortcut. YMMV.

    Thanks for the input. That was definitely easier to do in the previous version....

    Here are the photos you requested. Let me know if they suffice or I need to take at a different angle, etc.

    It looks to me that there is definitely an inboard bearing recess, and it looks to be about the same depth as the spacers. I really think that is why it has the spacers.

    BTW, is it just the light in the photo's, or are the hubs a dark navy, rather than black?

    The light is making it appear a different color. It is black like the rest of the wheel.

    My AeroZ was made for the Spinergy Wire wheels but I run LX's on it. B/C of the bearing recess I had to add spacers to my camber bar so that the wheels didn't rub after I swapped them. It works for me though b/c I added knobby tires to the wire wheels for off road use (usually grass), so the wider overall width worked out in my favor.

    I meant to reply to this awhile back.

    My original TiLite TR3, that wasn't measured correctly, didn't come with spacers. It had the same wheels. That's why I didn't understand the new chair having them.

    I can see why you are perplexed about this. I can't remember your original specs, but did you change the rear wheel spacing on the re-do chair? My guess is not, in which case it is odd that they added spacers when it was not necessary on the first chair due to the hubs.

    I really believe the chair should come without spacers as it is measured for. It does not give you much wiggle room if you buy wider tires or something and need to increase it. I don't know the maximum you can go with spacers, but I can imagine there is a point that too much is not good. I would ask your dealer or Tilite about this.

    Hope the re-do chair is going better overall for you.

    Did you happen to order removable side guards and or desk arms with your chair? If you did, that is probably the reason for the spacers. If you did not,please private message us with your serial number and we can take a look at your chair and see if we can figure out why you received it with two spacers. When we design the chairs we take into account the type of rear wheels that are ordered with the chair, however, we cannot always take into account the side guards and desk arms due to some fabrication tolerances. Let's see what we can do to help clarify things for you. Thanks.

    I saw your reply in the other thread. You are correct. I didn't see your response here. I'm about to send you a private message.
