    As far as I am concerned Ti lite is GARBAGE as my experience so far. I have a Ti aero x that has had the bottom bracket that holds the folding chair together brake twice, the arms just swing freely, the bearings blew out , the frog legs are so bad that I have to wheelie around 80 percent of the time cause they turn the wheels straight & lock em up so I cant move!!!! The only thing holding the chair together is the rigid back. As far as ti lite I would say my frame is good cause it hasnt cracked, other than that not sure what to say. Oh & I cant take the wheels off to get at the brakes to adjust em either. Trying to deal with anyone has been a complete joke cause I have medicaid & medicare so no one seems to give two shits that I have to deal with a falling apart chair. My chair is 2 1/2 years old

    Interesting Tilite hasn't responded to this Allen but are sure quick to respond to those thinking about ordering. I'm ordering another Tilite, not particualrly because I want to but because there's no other that are any better that my workers comp will pay for.

    When they first started they were awesome, great customer service and we could call and get decent advice. Now all they say is "Call your dme guy". Marty Ball what happened to such a great company. I guess you just got too big like many of the others.

      When I get my new ZRA is the footrest adjustable?

        Yes. You will have some adjustability. On the rigid chairs the average is 2" upward and 1" downward depending on your configuration.

                    I wanted to let you know we are still having issues posting photos. I've requested help and I hope to have images to you by tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed. It's probably operator error on my part.

                        TiLite may not be perfect but Pat I'm sure you remember the days, I know I do where the companies like E&J dictated to us what we were going to get, not only that they bought up and killed anything innovative, our only choices where what colour upholstery we could get. TiLite might have it's faults but they are fewer then the faults of SunRise/Quickie & Invacare. Sure TiLite is promoting it's dealer relationship but that's where the majority of their revenue stream comes from. TiLite might ignore some customers but remember the days of not only ignoring customers but dictating what they were going to get?

                          LOL Yep Canuck I remember. Upholstery could come in brown, black or blue. Could also have the option of having a second hole one inch back for the rear wheels. Weight 55 lbs. with basketball wheels approx. 60lbs. Camber was a small bar we made with two holes that would spread the cross members apart by and inch creating about a 3o camber. It made the seat upholstery sag and when folded up it would come apart because the down tubes lifted out of the frame.

                          I hear you on the quality of the companies, but I'm sure you remember when Sunrise was run by Marilyn, the chairs were bulletproof and if any problems, customer service was there. Top End; we could just call Chris Peterson and he woud send the part out that day or make a new frame and tell us to keep the old one. They got so big or bought out they lost the quality and customer service. Unfortunately, Tilite has gone the same way with customer service. Any problem must be dealt with thru the dme. If you bought the chair in another town and moved they will not provide the service except from the dme you bought it from.I just went thru this with a young lady I'm mentoring. She bought the chair in Bellingham and moved to Spokane. They(dme)helped her once and after was told she has to go thru her dme in Bellingham. Stainless and E&J may have dictated what we coud use, we modified them, but their customer service was great...until they got bought out.

                          Tilite puts out a decent chair but....

                            Recently I had a set of 700C wheels made for my Ti-Lite ZR Series 2...my trouble is I can't find a set of axles which are not too short, or too long. What is the standard grip length (from the inside face of the wheel to the inside of the grip) in inches, required for the Ti-Lite chair? Is this adjustable? I couldn't get 700C wheels standard. I'm normally a tall dude, and not will to give up a CM for the chicks...

                              The axle receiver is 2" long. Add that to the length of the bearing faces in the hub of your wheel. With that result you should be able to find an axle that will suit your needs.

                                TI-Lite is REALLY good! The frame is lighter (9.3lbs) than the 10lb weight I used for cardio for pete's sake! The FIRST chair I've ever owned of this caliber... delivering pizzas as a 2nd job requires LOTS of assembly, tear down. You dudes made my millenium...^5 high five
