    New TiLite ZR

    Just to share my long awaiting Tilite ZR has arrived, been using my Etac Elite for almost 30 years ( 3 x same manufacture different models ), guess its time to change manufacturer, ( Swede Etac discontinued production of lightweight wheelchair ) still very good & rigit, will keep it as spare now Hope this ZR will stay for another 10 years or more, big thanks to Peter Tan for the recommendation website & Stephen from Bike-On.com for all the long guides & patient to complete the order form. So far so good, only not used to the 85 degree front angle, ( previous was 70-75 degree i think ) the rest seems good. cheers !

    Pretty schweet. I like that the spokes match your stimulite logo on the cushion.

    Are those extra thick handrims?

    Chair looks great, Kenny! You will get used to the 85-degree front end sooner than you think. My first chairs back in the '80s had extended front ends, it's just how it was done back then. Aside from the smaller footprint of the shorter frame, with your legs tucked under your body more your heel cords will get stretched throughout the day. Once your center of gravity is dialed in -- if it wasn't perfect straight from the factory -- you will also find the shorter frame makes popping curbs easier. Trust me, you'll never look back. It was a pleasure helping you!

    Thx Stephen, feel like the seat bit too high, back seat maybe lower an inch would be better, still not used to it yet....

    Are you using the ZR exclusively now? I wouldn't suggest going back and forth between you old chair and your new one.
