    Thank you wheeliecoach for your suggestions. For the longest time I kept thinking maybe it was the kind of hand lotion or soap that I was using which was leaving a residue on the metal. But after searching on the internet, I agree?.time to replace the hand rims.

    Re: soft rolls, I will try loosening the wheels as you suggest, meanwhile TiLite is sending replacement bearings as I may have just gotten a bad set.

You can contact the manager directly if you have further questions. Thanks.
      My sincere apology to TiLite for making some wrong assumptions and in particular for assuming that t8burst was representing TiLite. I would like to explain how that happened.

      The first post on this thread comes from TiLite which says, "Great idea! TiLite is happy to be part of the new Manufacturer & Vendor Forum! Since this is a new forum and a new opportunity for us - We would like to know what the topics you would like TiLite to talk about here."

      Based on that opening post I wrongly assumed that each manufacturer/vendor was responsible for moderating their own thread that CareCure was offering under Manufacturer and Vendors Forum.

      Then when t8burst responded to my post, his name came up with the title "moderator". I again wrongly assumed he was moderator of this particular thread thus representing TiLite or representing CareCure as a moderator. He has since explained that he is moderator for one or two other threads on this forum, so apparently his title automatically follows him regardless of the thread that he posts to vs being identified as just another member when he is not in the moderator role. He has clarified that he does not represent TiLite, and that he was commenting as an individual to my post.

      I confess that I also thought that TiLite's lack of response to my emails was due to Permobile having bought TiLite out and that TiLite's customer service was now less than it used to be. Glad to report, that due to my post on CareCure, Mark Westphal did contact me and he was very helpful. He agreed with the information I found on the internet that the coating has probably worn off the aluminum thus causing the black hands. There is no amount of cleaning the rims that will correct this and the only solution is to replace the push rims. As for the bearings, Mark offered to send replacements as I may have gotten a bad set with the soft rolls.

      So yes all is better in my world, and thank you TiLite for responding to my concerns, and thank you CareCure for providing this forum.

        Again I have no relation to TiLite at all.

        It is a public forum. I have no love or hate for TiLite, but as someone who has done some customer service in the past people you fall into the group of people who will complain about anything. If you want to get a reasonable response from any company possibly consider that complaining about things like wet grass sticks to something is not going to get your email taken seriously.
        Thank you for clarifying your role when you first responded to my post. Obviously I didn't understand how this forum is set up and functions. I have posted my apology to TiLite for the wrong conclusion that I made about your representing them. I know a thing about customer service, and kindness is one of the first principles.

                    Are the cross braces, foot rest, back rest, forks, rear axle housings Titanium or aluminum?

                      The footrest and backrest have options for both aluminum and titanium. The camber tube clamps (axle housings) are aluminum, the camber tubes are carbon fiber and aluminum; the cross tubes are aluminum and the forks are aluminum.

                        Dear TiLite, today VA Omaha ordered Q292769_D (per Jason Valery). The chair is for me.

                        It's a pretty custom TR3 (can you say "TiFit"?), with an ergo seat, double cambertubes (with different cambers), a single swivel caster anti-tipper, mixed color anodizing (perhaps - up to the VA - USCG edition), squared-off flip-back footrest, frame length customized to meet specified backrest-to-footrest distance, special caster-fork configuration, etc..

                        My current chair is an AeroZ1 modified extensively by me to incorporate nearly all the above features (notably, not the double axle); measurements for this TR3 were taken from my modified AeroZ, which fits superbly.

                        I suspect it's one of the more complex/custom chairs you've built. I am eager to eventually see pictures of its progress during fabrication. If you find such picture taking feasible, please do so. And, if VA doesn't object, please post them on your Facebook page (or elsewhere).

                        Thanks

                          Can you get me TiLite's sales order number for the chair? (You can get this from your Dealer.) We don't use any user's name or Dealer's purchase order numbers in production. We track the chairs using TiLite's sales order number and/or a job number once it is in production. Thanks.
