        I'm sure you had a therapist spec it out for you, right?

        What a absolutely awesome chair!

        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 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).

        I'm interested to hear how it compares to your ZRc as well as you Hall's.

        Such an understated title for your thread.

            The frame of the ZR2 is 1" narrower (15" wide in the rear) and 1" longer than my ZRc. With the 1.5" seat taper and the 1.25" tubing, the width between the front frame is 11", so my legs are closer together, which is what I wanted. The extra inch in length (the ZR2 is 17", the ZRc is 16") gives greater front-to-rear stability. (The seat pan is 16.5" deep.)

            I discovered that my Halls chair, which is nominally 16" deep, is an inch longer than my ZRc, also nominally 16". Not knowing my Schulte dimension way back when, I didn't appreciate the difference between the two setups. As for comparing the Halls and the ZR2, it's a little too soon to say, but they're roughly equivalent. The ZR2 has me sitting more compactly, so that's a plus. And the orange/copper accents suit me.

            I'd like to give shout-outs to Doug Garven at TiLite. The cool fin-shaped side guards were patterned after those that he designed for some of his earlier chairs. Without them the chair wouldn't fit me properly without them; my legs would be brushing up against the wheels.

            . . . And Marcus Falhgren of Central Composites, who sketched out and made the side guards and seat pan for me. He did a great job.

            . . . And Josh Anderson at TiLite was a total pleasure to work with from start to finish.

                  The carbon fiber is sweet. Nice chair. Do you take in in and out of a car? I love the backrest, but don't think I could get that chair in and out of my mini.

                    Thanks. I don't own a car, I'm a NYC public transportation guy. On those occasions when I travel by car or cab I have my butler (my building doorman OR my wife) load the chair.

                      I'm curious to know, after some seat time or first impressions, if you notice the change going from 16" to 15" ADI back very much?

                        Sure you could.

                        Very nice chair Stephen,a full welded chair!! sure that one don`t give any problems, i just miss an attached calf strap, but if you don`t use it, no reason for put it.
                        Sure you will never go back without sideguards again.

                        Enjoy in it, have a nice time in Paris

                          Back in the day, I seem to recall a CareCure regular received a cf camber tube that had a loose camber plug. He posted his concerns about it and TiLite's QC processes in this forum. The ensuing inferno sparked by that thread raged for nearly 2 months and exceeded 200 posts.

                          Knowing who would be getting the chair, do you think they quadruple checked your cf camber tube and everything else before shipping it?

                            Before getting the ZR2 my Halls has been my everyday and it's 14" wide. It has an old Jay Xtreme backrest, which is contoured very differently from the ADI (and Roho), but so far I'm finding the 15" wide ADI very comfortable.

                              I discussed the issue with Josh Anderson when we met at the Abilities Expo. He showed me a CF camber tube which now has pinned camber plugs, so even should the epoxy fail (and hopefully that won't happen), the plug will stay put.
