    New Tiltite TR w/ ADI Brakes

    Hello All!! Been a while since I have posted much. My insurance approved a new TiLite TR with ADI brakes. I have long wanted the disc brakes, I hope they perform as I have it set in my head.

    Here are the specs, pics to follow once it arrives.

    17 x 17 TR 85? frame "V" front
    19 FSH 15.5 RSH
    Folding back
    5 x 1.5 casters with Slipstream forks
    ADI Disc Brakes

    Sounds like you're referring to the front angle. Thats one of the measurements thats specifically chosen when the chair is ordered, sounds like you didn't get what you want. The OP looks to be tentatively choosing the 85 degree front end.

    by original, do you mean the exact same chair? Because unless you changed another dimension (such as lowering the rsh after you've received the chair, that will make the front end stick out further) an 85 on a TR will always be an 85. However if you had a completely different chair, like say a quickie or invacare, different companies aren't identical so yes an 85 on a top end may be different from an 85 on a tilite TR.

    But regardless, such a problem is a problem with the specifications you ordered the chair with, not a problem with the model of chair. A chair is only as good as the specifications it was made to.

    I ordered my TR with the ADI brakes but ultimately didn't like them and removed them. My chair rocked a lot with the brakes on; I am told it was the flex in the Spinergy spokes. Also, as I recall, the wheels didn't spin that great because of one of the modifications they do.

    Here are a couple pictures of it though.
