It is my understanding that the more narrow of the two single chair
models at MRG is original to MRG.  This is the chair that has a bent
brace on the outbound side of the chair seat.  I believe that the
wider of the two chair types is from Stowe.  This chair has a straight
sloped brace with beefier tubing, reminiscent of a BFL ca. 1950.

The bent brace of the more narrow chair style is conducive to sitting
sideways in the chair, and fails miserably as an armrest.  The wider
chair is preferred on the colder days, but tears up the back of the
knee trying to sit sideways.

It's all water under the bridge,  I'll ride a single chair anytime. . .

soon please.
