TiLite ZRA Series 2 Finally Arrived

Cheeky and TiLite ZRA Series 2
Cheeky checking out the box with my TiLite ZRA Series 2 wheelchair.

I was informed two Fridays ago that the wheelchair that I ordered with Bike-On had arrived at the shop from TiLite and that it would be sent to the shipper in the morning. Someone from FedEx called me last wednesday to ask what was inside the box for customs declaration at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. I told that him it is a wheelchair. He said he would declare it as such and there should not be any tax.

FedEx Shipment Travel History – Where the wheelchair went before it arrived in Malaysia.

After five nail-biting days wondering about the status of the shipment, it was finally delivered this morning. (I did not have the tracking number to follow the process.) I have installed the brakes and wheels and am now waiting for Wuan to help me with the rest. The backrest angle needs to be adjusted. I specified 95 degrees but this looks like 90 degrees. Other than that, the wheelchair looks good. I cannot wait to get on it and do a few spins around the neighbourhood.

  1. Hey Pete,you’ve been so quiet! Howse the wheelchair? Good? and the attachment? have you tried it too? Is it good? So many questions!!

    1. Been busy assembling and adjusting what I can while waiting for Wuan to help with the major ones. She has been extremely busy with work lately. Hopefully can get the chair all done by this weekend and go for a spin. Used it for a while but not comfortable due to the backrest angle and height but the chair had a good feel, very responsive. Well, any wheelchair that doesn’t creak is better than the current one. It creaks even when I adjust my position.
