    This weekend i will do the sideguards, seat, footplate and assembly forks&casters, probably rear wheels will be done next week, so in the end of the next week or the other i will finish the report for adaptado and i will try to translate it in english and post pics for CC.

    P.D: hey Stephen! what about send you the review in my english and you could translate it correct for the forum?
    No problemo.

        As you know i`m going in a new chair soon, it`s a shame can see it every day in my storage, and being seating in my old gtx.
        I was finish with all about the chair time ago unless the wheels, because i bought two front mtb wheels for modify them to the chair, but this is being a pain in the arse.
        Well they are going to be unique wheelchairs wheels so i don`t want that they will get nasty after a few monthes about scratches in the pushrims, that is because i choosed for them stainless steel pushrims, similar than titanium in hardness to get scratched, but much cheaper.
        Of course they are heavier than aluminiums, but only touching them i can feel that they have more grip than anodized aluminiums, and the add in weight is not in the transfer weight so i`m not really worried about if wheels are a bit heavier if they are better, for repay it i went for a light tyre.
        The weight of them for 559 are 709 grames.

          What's more of a shame is that we can't see it!



          Hope it is coming together well! What brand of hubs did you go with for your wheels

            Hubs? i bought a pair of entire front Mavic wheels, and i had to strip the wheel for modify the hub, open holes in rims for pushrims and assembly them again, align and balance them, after all now the wheels are to far from the frame, so i need new bushings for this wheels.

            I hope you can see it in the first week of March.

                spoiler alert!

                the black frame will match your suit and tie better. love the color combo - black frame/white hubs/grey spokes.

                when you've perfected the hub adaptation you should market the parts for sale. (or at least a very detailed write-up please)


                are these the wheels?

                      Those hubs look awesome.

                      Are you taking regular bicycle hubs and converting them to fit a wheelchair?
                      Are they using the standard quick release wheelchair mechanism?
                      How hard is it to convert a regular bicycle hub to fit a wheelchair quick release mechanism?

                        I don`t do it, you need a CNC machine for that, i just told to the CNC operator what to do.
                        Yes i`m using the same quick release axle that i had in my Spinergys LX.
                        Is not an easy job, but now that i know what to do without problems i can assure you that i will never go back to wheelchairs wheels, out there i`ve got a wonderful bike world waiting for my next chair , i`m a bit sick seen all cool chairs with Spinergys.

                          Thanks for the info..

                          Would you take pictures of the before and after of the hubs, showing what the CNC operator had to do.... If it works well for you, would like to try and repeat .

                            Yes, i will post in the chair thread what to do for adapt bike wheels, but not all wheels need the same adaption, different hubs need different things to do, there is the question, but basically i will tell what to do, after you only will need to give the measurements to the operator.

                              the chair is ready to go, waiting for a sunny day to do the pics for the review, all week raining, i`m seating in it, i can`t tell much, only that is more agile insides , easier to hold it up to the car, a bit lighter, better brakes, more rigidity, etc.
                              I really like the stainless steel pushrims, they use a 20mm diameter tube and i`ve got in my Spinergys 19mm, more grip and better sensations.
                              But they are much heavier than an aluminium pushrims, around 260 grames more, but for me they worth, for a 559 wheel 709 grames for the pushirm, an aluminium would weight around 450.
                              I`m using my 24" LX in the chair that is built for 25" wheels for have the tires of the Mavic wheels in perfect conditions for the review, the chair became a bit tippy with the LX, but nothing important, i wish a good day for do the pics and start using the Mavics.
                              I will start the thread once the review is publish in adaptado.es

                              Here is just an aperitif, you can see that the lower frame is hide behind the front tubes and my legs, of course, so if you see the chair in front you don`t see the box frame, is just like a L frame.
                              In this one i`ve got a knee reduction, i prefer it much than the tapered seat.
