    This is another product by the same company that I think is interesting for it's design, the TNS Crossvoorzetwiel. It is specifically made for their TNS RSX wheelchair. What I like is the curved tube over the wheel that keeps it vertical for the caster pivot bearing, but also still allows for a negative rake so that it trails. The RSX appears to have a tubing diameter similar to the TiLite ZRA of 1.25", so maybe there is a chance that we could use something like this. I have no idea about what the price is, and there is not much information on their website.

Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

      I have just started a thread about the Modified All-Terrain Third Wheel we are working on. I thought it best to keep it apart from this product specific thread. I'd love to hear any input or suggestions any of you may have.

        finally got a SmartWheel

        So after 5 long years, we finally bought a SmartWheel. So far, it is working great and is a good solution for anyone who wants an all-terrain third wheel who can't use a FreeWheel. We couldn't use the FreeWheel because my husband's chair has individual flip-up footrests and we needed to attach it to the front frame. I really like that it is a nice wide tire and that it is a bit more compact than the FreeWheel. It also looks pretty cool if you ask me.
