    They are Quickie's standard ergo scissor locks which happen to fit in the TiLite clamp for the no charge push to lock wheel locks which came on the chair. I trimmed off any excess to be able to reach under the seat and prevent them from interfering with the upholstery straps.

    Back to work...

    scorp, i think you'd really appreciate the softrolls over the hard casters. i've always used 5" hard casters an bought me a pair of soft off ebay. they REALLY make a difference rolling over bumps an thresholds, i mean REALLLLY.

    Hi SCI OTR,

    Ok, I never would have guessed that. I was thinking some sort of van tie down.

    That is a very nice looking chair SCI.

    so let's say I order a ZR w/ the intention of putting my 4x1.5" FrogLegs softrolls on it, as I just have a set lying around...

    What [no charge] front wheel option would I want to order? Are the ProSpin short forks the same size as one of the standard TiLite options? As I'm sure you're well aware, setting the casters up/down even +/- 0.5" can make a difference.

    Actually...newer Ti chairs are using wider forks to accomodate a 1.5 inch soft roll. I confirmed that at the abilities expo with both the ti lite guys and the representative from Frog Legs. Ti ships your chair with a 1 inch soft roll...but you can also put on a 1.5 inch soft roll if you would like after receiving your chair and no change to the Frog Leg fork will need to be done.

    Good to know... but to clarify, you're talking about the TiLite fork & not a FrogLegs fork?
