Now that I
have fitted pushrims to the off-road wheels they are a lot
better I also find that the 2" wide wheels are far better on
pavements etc. than the Spinergy Spox (probably due to the
fact that they have racing tyres on), But the Spox are far
better on the smoother ground (I carry both sets around in
the car at all times)
The chair itself is very comfortable especially on the legs
as the hold my legs firmly.
If there is one downside to the new chair it would be that
the Titanium does have a certain amount of flex and although
in every other aspect this is a good thing, the castors 4"
(I had 3" on my old chair which was steel frame) biggish
stones/rocks seem to jam under the wheel and the flex of the
frame doesn't seem to help.
the same as happens to me on my Kuschall Champion Neo chair
with similar chassis design! So its not the Titanium metal
that causes this but the flex in the single tube frame.

But this is a
very minor downside and the only one I have come across, but
the main thing for me seems to be the option of the wheels
which make life easier depending where I am out and about at
The chair is
so light and the ultra lightweight wheels help as well, and
all this rounds up to a well balanced chair, and as it is
built to your own specification the comfort options are
cost of the chair came to £2600 with all the extra’s listed
above, (the base model chair starts at about£1700) and build
time was about 6weeks, Cyclones service and support has been
excellent at all times.
I have yet to
try it out with my power trike, but the weight of the power
trike fixing is probably heavier than the whole chair, and
as my upper body strength is getting better, I am going to
try and manage without the power trike (is does tend to make
me a bit lazy anyway)
