    Bought a used Escalera (Sorry zmeny ). Practiced with it for a week before getting to use it for real. I practied on a footlocker filled with dumbbells and a piece of pool table slate. Lucked into a Paragon at a garage sale and brought it up two flights of stairs with a ninety degree turn. The owners were impressed to say the least.

    I did have to stay on the concrete as I don't have the big wheels for off-roading yet. Hmmmm.... I wonder where the best place to purchase those would be.

    Quoted from LTG:

    Now Zach. Larry retired.
    LTG : )

    Zach is good people. I bought the Step Edge Detection system from him and had no problems whatsoever. Friendly on the phone and everything ordered and arrived in short order.

    I, by the way, love the Step Edge Detection. I had to put on a new toe plate, which was a bear on my rusty old Escalera. I know some folks seem to say it is a waste of money but with my worn and slightly scooped stairs, I have 100% confidence now. Those puppies lock on shortly after hitting the next stair when I hold at the correct angle. Makes for less stress and strain, physically and mentally.
