    as a new user you are of course entitled to your opinion however I did mention that my Zra had 6 degrees of camber so of course that would put a lateral force on the wheels which is what I attributed the the flexing to not pushing

    I am now using an Icon with 4 degrees of camber but still run RBs

    I like the look of the chunky spokes on the Betty's, nice . The advertising blurb on my local dealer's website mentions how much more stiffer and efficient (pushing wise) the Dino's are compared to all other wheels. But I'm dubious because with the wheelchair user, the pushing force is directed at the rim so surely spoke flex wouldn't come into it, unlike cycle riders? Mmmm I don't know, and this thread is SO OLD, but's it's new me being a new member and I just wanted to give my 'two penneth worth' Plus any of the premium wheels have got to be better the zillion spoke bicycle type wheels on my chair

      It's a smiley kind of day I guess.

        personally i do like the look of the dinos thicker spokes for some reason but prefer the spinergy wheel as a whole, saying that i love my topolinos very stealthy and smooth, but my next pair of wheel might even be the new spinergy xslx wheels i just think they look great, the xlx with much less spokes looks strange to me, but each to their own i guess :P

            3 years later and this thread really helped me! Decided to cancel LX's and go for RB Dinos with orange spokes

                    Thanks Stephen, they look awesome! On the orange pic - did you buy the orange handrim screws or did the Dinos come with them?

                      Good eye. I bought the fasteners from a company called Pro-Bolt. (I actually don't have the orange Dinos anymore. I gave them to a friend in need. Still have the red Dinos, the Spinergy Blades, and a set of Topolinos. That's all one person needs.)
