    I agree with Stephen's 2" measurement. Axle lengths can be a nuisance to get correct. If you need less space it probably would be fine to file off a 1/4 inch, I'm not sure how much removal would be okay. To deal with a longer axle, try spacer washers between the push button and wheel bearings. It might work doing the same on the inside, but that will change your clearance. Finding the spacer washers of the correct inside and outside diameters would be a challenge, but doable.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

The only thing holding the chair together is the rigid back. As far as ti lite I would say my frame is good cause it hasnt cracked, other than that not sure what to say. Oh & I cant take the wheels off to get at the brakes to adjust em either. Trying to deal with anyone has been a complete joke cause I have medicaid & medicare so no one seems to give two shits that I have to deal with a falling apart chair. My chair is 2 1/2 years old
    Allen - can you private message me so we can discuss how we can assist you? Thanks.

    We have four axle lengths:
    CP100141 - 4.250 - 4.475"
    CP102619 - 3.925 - 3.985"
    CP101035 - 3.745 - 4.000"
    CP100932 - 4.490 - 4.570"
    Measurement includes inside of sleeve to outside of outside bearing. The grip length of our axles sleeves/plugs is 2".

    Yes the ZRA back angle is adjustable. It ranges from 80* to 101* depending on your seat dump.

    Question Aire the Main Bearings replacable?

    One of my main wheels is getting a little loose. I am wondering about bearing maintenance - how often should the wheel bearing be replaced. does tilite sell the parts and
    is this something a bike shop or a machine shop can do?
