Thread: Dialing in chair fit- Frame length and angle

  1. #21
    I was told to stop doing research and seeking advice on forums, because it won't help to get me what I need, because there's always going to be another option or suggestion. I'm confused at this point, that's why I am seeking opinions from people who've been there, and know what works. I can tell looking at myself that it doesn't fit me. I think the only chair that's ever fit me well was a demo I bought. It was too long, but I scrunched up the sling seat a bit, and it was perfect. Ironically, she went off the measurements for that chair, too! I basically wanted that chair duplicated, but just an inch higher footrest. But since I was sitting in my Ti ZR, I explained what didn't work with that. So, being a little bit too tall, translated to going to 14 inches in back. 3" less. We were both guessing! I should have gone to an OT after the first frame. I'm too trusting. Though that would have to have gone through authorization, and take a long time. I do have a kick ass caseworker fortunately. Just met last year. She can move mountains I think, and can tell this is a mess.

    I'll send a message to Stephen F ... he sells for bike-on or did (?) and IMO, is an expert on chair fit. Paralyzed as well.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Translation is they do not want to hear from an informed customer.
    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.
