    My WC

    I got my new chair its a TR3. Ordering this chair was a little trickier from my last wc which was a ZRA. I used the specs from my ZRA for this chair. Overall it made my chair longer by about an inch. It's not too bad, I thought I wasn't going to be comfortable but I'm ok with my setup. Thanks Stephen for reassuring me that its better to be a little longer rather than shorter. I was suppossed to get the regular rigidizer bar instead of the new rounded one, because I didn't know if my ADI back would fit and I thought it would make my chair lean to one side when loading in to my car (my crazy way of loading my chair). I thought I ordered 4 x 1 inch casters but I'm not sure but these look like 1.5. One of my spinergy's has this kink in one of the spokes, will this affect the durability of the wheel. I've attached some pics and my specs. And for the ladies out there that are thinking about wearing heels I included a picture of me in my profile. Oh yeah and sorry for the busy background, I'm having some construction in my house and couldn't find a place to take pics. And sorry for the pic quality I took with my ipad.

      Oh yeah I was going to ask what is that. I'm assuming it has something to do with the straps on the seat, I really don't know.

        And the black foam on my footrest is the Wheel Comfort Footplate, I recommend it for those of you that go barefoot like I do when I'm at home.

            Fabric strap = locking mechanism for folding back, ne pas?

            I think they still need a better footplate for bare, paralyzed feet.

            I'd get that spinergy taken care of STAT! Space for a Smartdrive!

              It looks like the Schwalbe tires are the version with the reflective strip...I am glad mine didn't come with those as I do not like those.

              Those indeed look like the 1.5" Frog Leg casters. Enter your serial number in at TiLite's look up and see what it says.

                    Very nice tilite has really out did them selfs with the TR3. I really like this chair. I like the box frame. May I dare say sexy for a chair. And from everything I hear everyone has nothing but good things to say about the TR3. This is a chair that I would have been interested in if my insurance would have said no to my icon. And mike box chairs are a personal favorite. CONGRATS ON THE NEW WHEELS! Hope you enjoy and love them! Where would I get one of those foot rests? Thanks

                            It looks great! I also really like the polished finish. I think it looks better than the satin personally, like Stephen212's chair, or I really liked SCI_OTRs chair after he changed the finish to polished.

                            Are you happy with the curved back rigidizer? Or do you wish they would have given you the one you originally wanted?

                              It's ok, I thought I was going to have trouble when loading it, but it hasn't been a problem.
