    Those are actually really interesting, but they look totally incongruous with the general style of pretty much every modern wheelchair.

    its like putting wooden rims on a modern car, the rest of which is aluminum or plastic and painted... it just looks weird.

    I'm intrigued by how they are manufactured. Making a perfect and balanced circle our of wood can't be easy.

    Maybe a dark stain would help if the contrast is not aesthetically pleasing.

    I like them. Wood and leather are 2 of my favorite materials.

    The Spinergy guy told me these were very popular in Europe. I'm interested in getting a pair, thanks for posting the link to the supplier in Canada.

    If you get these it would be great if you would review them on here especially once you have had and used them for say at least 6 months or so
