    So there were holes all the way through the frame? My aero t doesn't have them but, it is older. How about the full specs of the chair?

    Yeah, they go all the way through. I don't know why the frame hole is even there. The cane holes are the ones the bolt/nut that holds the height adjustable cane pieces in place. I removed those pieces.

    This puzzled me is well. I've designed and assembled a bunch machinery over the years I never saw a side mount retaining ring installed on machine threads. The picture isn't all that clear but looking closely at it, it looks like there's a smaller diameter extension past the threads that has the groove in it for the clip. That makes sense.

    It makes as much sense as tying a length of string to the axle so it doesn't go missing . I would far rather have a locking fastener into the axle (axially).

    That back seems really tall for 10" how do you like it?

    The shell itself is 10" tall but it's mounted on the canes such that the top of the shell is actually 13" from the seat pan. It's comfortable. I also had them include the standard no-charge back upholstery, not mounted on the chair, in case I ever want to switch it out.
