    I really don't think frame material matters. I think we mostly perceive what we want to perceive and take material properties from MDS and other industrial applications and errantly apply them to...

    my question remains, and has always been, given what I can get off the MDS for annealed (workable) 6al4v titanium vs heat treated 7000 series aluminum, the titanium is ~45% stronger but 60% heavier...

    It's pretty low. Like 25-35 GSM at best. Very low denier as well because the individual threads are tiny. Just guesstimating based on some TiLite upholstery I have compared to the 64GSM nylon I...

    Since denier is about individual threads, also consider gsm (grams per square meter). A high denier can still have a low gsm, meaning the weave is not very dense, so often won't be as strong/stiff...

    Ronnie,

    The front wheel attachment for a rigid wheelchair? There are a handful of them, if so. Dragonfly comes to mind. Search for 'attachable handcycle' on google if this is what you're looking for.
