        Wow, you probably have the strongest anti tip(s) Tilite has ever delivered to a customer. It's time for you to go dancing.
        I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

          Looking good. Remind me, is the plan to use a different set of wheels on the aft camber tube when you use the Dragonfly? You sure have a lot of gadgets. What are the red webbed straps for?
          Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). 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).

              Thanks.

              No, I'll just move my MagicWheels aft, and put them in low gear to engage their anti-rollback feature so when Dragonfly loses traction peddling uphill, I don't roll backwards. (I don't yet have the MW brackets for the rear axle; MW (Provail) won't let VA buy them ???? So I'm mulling options.)

              All those gadgets provide me considerable independence away from home.

              The red straps were custom made for me by Strapworks.com; the set on my TR are the third pair they've made for me. They are transit tie downs: loops easily reached by bus drivers to hook in their huge metal hooks.

              I also bought the silver strap from Strapworks; it's off-the-shelf for hooking the chair to my Bruno Lift.

                They're not quite fully adjusted yet, but I've down spins in my living room already, and they are great!!

                        Chas, great to see that the saga has ended well! I'm going to the VA on Tuesday to pick up a Smart Drive MX2 for my Icon. Can't wait to see how it does off-road (but on-trail).

                            As long as traction is not an issue it does fine, but 8" and it's contact patch is small.

                              Provail (MagicWheel vendor) has finally 'approved' selling to VA, and VA has ordered them. No tracking is available to me though, so I have absolutely no idea when they'll arrive.

                              Also, curiously, I took my Dragonfly to a local bike shop to have some minor adjusting done (I don't want to buy the special Shimano tools required), and the new guy at the shop said he wouldn't work on it . . . WTF . . . where's the old guy that was excited to work on something different? Now I need to use a different bike shop.

                                Liability, a friend of a friend broke a leg because her Hoyer lift failed. I was asked if I wanted to repair the Hoyer for her. I said no.
