      That's a very important issue I am trying to settle with TI.

      Looks like you took a standard unit with no special requests in that area. Would I be right?

      It's not falling down on you? Is it loose enough to flip back or is it a backwards angle adjustable plate?
      I love it. Standard flipback footrest with no special requests. It stays up; I just catch it with my heels to flip up or down. Works great (after one day's use)!

        I'll put locktite on the armrest nuts. Thanks. And I love maintaining bearings (I used to be an avid roller skater - already have the degreaser and grease).

          Very sound advice, indeed.

            I also have the flip-back footrest and it works well. When I get in bed, I swing one leg over my frame bar, to get it out of the way, and I use the heel of my other foot on the front of the plate to pull it up and back.

            I really like the blue.

                Thank you. I do, too. I was a bit nervous about the color accuracy on TiLite's website, but it was pretty accurate

                    Thank you Chas and Brian.

                    I will put in an order for one after discussing this thread with the TI representative.

                        handsome chair.

                        What tire are you using?

                        natural-fit is wonderful.

                        why is it spinergy spox is so expensive?

                            Very nice Chas. Love the blue very much. Congrats again.

                            One question regarding the 3.5" front end taper, seat pouch and carry-all, similar to what I am configuring. I know you just got the chair and have not the time to do this yet. Do let me know if you have problems putting things in the carry-all with the legs and seat pouch in the way. Such a coincidence that I was asking this in the other thread and then I see you have the same set up here.

                              Tires? here's pic from AeroZ's order form:


                              I have been unable to find anything like it on the web. Its side wall says "By Spartech," "Aero-Flex," "24x13/8 (540 mm)." TiLite claimed it was non-marking, and they appear to be right so far.

                              I am loving the Natural Fits.

                              spox$? don't know.

                                I spent considerable time yesterday seeking the 'best' way to hang the catchall. Now I will try it for awhile. My legs are mobile, so I just move them out of the way to reach the catchall from the front. If I couldn't move my legs easily, reaching the catchall would be a royal pain.

                                I ordered the large seat pouch - it's way too big. The DME Supplier has agreed to swap me for the smaller one. My plan is to hang the pouch as tightly as possible to the bottom of the seat pan, and reach through to the catchall beneath it . . . I won't know for some time yet how well that will work. It definitely does not work with the large pouch.
