    That's what I was afraid of, it looks good, the suspension is a nice feature, but I knew it probably wasn't going to be light. It looks it, but is it at least pretty compact with wheels off and back down. I am a t11 so weight is really not that much of an issue as I still might want to get one.

    My son has a Boing. The suspension is good for someone with severe spasms or very active in ways of rough terrain and what have you, he is t5 & 6, gets it in and out of truck/car but yeah it's a bit heavier than others. I am wondering about having to replace bushings every 3 to 6 months now though. Otherwise when the frame broke into second year due to unknown reasons, they were good about replacing the whole frame. Service sometimes takes a bit but then what place doesn't I guess (it could've very well been at times the vendor we went through too) and they have made up for that when it happens.

    p.s. the tires, I wish I could remember what they are called but the less aggressive tires are the best, they last a long time and get you through the snow/rocks/fields pretty good.
