    TRA frame diameter?

    Anybody know the size of the frame for a 2019 TiLite TRA? It's not immediately obvious from a google search.

    I am going to try and fit these hill holder brakes https://dezziv.eu/product-category/wheelchair-brake/ to replace my broken TiLite brakes. Hopefully they will help me be able to climb stairs. I need to know the frame diameter so I make sure I get clamps for the new brakes that will work.

        Try shopping at hgsupplysolutions.com. I purchased 4 pair at this price of $16.88 a pair. Other DMEs charge $80+, RAPE!

          that’s good to know, but I’m probably going to end up paying $500 for the brakes above because they’re also reversible hill holders so it should make climbing stairs markedly easier. And by easier I mean possible because I’ve always struggling with climbing stairs though I’ve often done a half flight or so before slipping up.

              TR/TRA tube diameter = 1.00"
              Fact. And my calipers prove it.

                You're probably right! My caliper proves that my tube is 1 3/16" so maybe the chair is not a TRA. I thought the "A" denoted aluminum.
                Now how about some more help: If my chair is ~2019 and fat aluminum mono-tube design, what model is it? Seriously!

                AND, what model is my very similar titanium chair, vintage 2003 or so?
                (reason: I love the old chair and would like to find another. This aluminum POS Medicare got me has eaten out the rocker mouding of my GTI and is starting on the steel rocker panel! The stupid bulky intersection of the caster fork and chair frame adds more than an inch to the accessibility of the damned thing!!
                The foot plate design sucks too.
