I have to admit the front rigging on my E&J chairs always stuck out too far in the front. I really like the front of my rigid framed manual chair a lot more for that reason. I can't handle carpet in it any more but use it as much as possible on smooth floor and it does go in most cars sans wheels with the back folded down. I find the past few years my wrist extension has gotten a bit weaker affecting my tendonesis grip. It sure takes a lot less time now to make a funny story out of a very messy mudslide. We actually had a coloring party with someones new colored pencils and coloring books after Christmas dinner yesterday. The improvements in drain bags has been truly amazing!
