    Looks good Jim. Make sure he orders the extra spacers in case you need to adjust the width between the wheel and frame; they're free. Everyone uses a different COG. The further forward it is, the easier to do a wheelie and quicker turns; back cog harder.

      ZRA was my first chair, too. It's a fabulous first chair because of its adjustability. As said above, post some pics of yourself in the chair when you get it. We love to share our opinions (as you probably noticed). Significant time (months) is required to dial your chair in; when you make adjustments, make them small and very few (aka one) at a time. After each adjustment give your body a few days to acclimate before adjusting again.

        Cool....Thanks guys, good stuff.

        On the adjustments it sounds just like sailing, RC gliding, or racing cars......make one adjustment at a time ;-).

        I am assuming all the fasteners on the Tilite chairs are SAE and not metric? and I am guessing they are all Allen Head fasteners? I will need to pick up a set of SAE as all I have are metric.

        Thanks.

        Cheers,
        Jim

            Good to know but looking at what Tilite charges for stuff I am thinking a quick trip to the Home Depot may be more financially responsible ;-).

            Cheers,
