Thanks for the compliments!

This chair is performing flawlessly, even under pretty harsh use.

What an excellent idea and great execution. It not only looks like great work but the use of cf will obviously be of benefit to the user.

There is a lady who lives on my street with an amazing cf prosthetic leg. It's so well designed, light and strong that I had no idea it wasn't a real leg until I saw her walking her dog wearing shorts one day.

Great work!

Just under 11lb. (excluding rear wheels and cushion). aka "transfer weight".
