    I actually wrote a letter to the editor that was published in the North Tahoe Bonanza when I was in elementary school (’01 or ’02 probably) lamenting the 10+ minute ride time of the old fixed grip Crystal and petitioned for a detachable replacement- I’m sure this was already in the works, but I got my wish shortly thereafter! This chair serves some of my all-time favorite terrain anywhere.
