    Steverino, nice, nice chair! Cool color scheme, looks sturdy and compact. Too nice to take on a NYC subway

      The aesthetic benefit you envisioned by going with 1.25" backrest tubing and the ovalized rigidizer bar wasn't totally clear until I saw the finished product. WOW!
      The reason I requested the 1.25" backrest tubing wasn't for its aesthetics, though I do like the way it looks. It was for practical reasons. Doug Garven sent me a photo of his fixed-back ZR2 and I noticed that his sideguards screwed flush into the side of the back posts without interference from the ADI back hardware.

      The ADI 1.25" mounting hardware does not encircle the tubing; unlike their 1" mounting hardware, the outside third of the tubing is left exposed. A small but essential detail.

      The extra inch on the footrest depth is something I've thought about for end users who have significant clonus and as a way to keep one's feet from popping off the front (especially with the tubular footrest).
      The Halls chairs came with 7" deep open toe footrests as standard. I don't get clonus much these days but my feet would still slide off the rear of the footrest on my ZRc and this never happened with my Halls. Once I discovered the depth discrepancy I had a new 7" open toe footrest made for the ZRc and problem solved.

        Thanks, Smokester. It would like nicer in a casino, but I'd wind up losing it playing craps.

            I really like this latest version of the backrest frame attachment hardware.

            Seriously, could not be more impressed. That chair would last me a lifetime. I wish I had as much faith as you have had with Ti, if I could've put up with the width of my ZRa until now I highly doubt I'd be sitting in a Lasher. Next gov't paid chair for me will be a ZR212.

              Well, that's a ringing endorsement.

                  Approximately 1/16". Very thin and it flexes, as intended.

                        That's the idea.

                            stephen, what colour are those unitines/casters? they look orange to me, but sportaid doesnt list orange as an available option. they do list gold, but i had hoped gold would look more 'goldy' (theyre on my 'next time' list), although maybe its my dodgy screen and/or eyesight...

                              They are in fact orange (copper, really). Sportaid doesn't list the color, a webmaster oversight, I guess.

                              When I placed the online order I specified a different color but noted in the comments area that I wanted orange. I made certain to have them confirm this by email before they processed the order.

                                I know it's not a concern, given it is obviously perfect for what it is, but have you weighed it?
