    You know the line, straight off the marketing brochure. No different.

    I'm not a big fan of Velcro, however. 3M Exterior Mounting tape would attach it to the frame better than Velcro, yet it can still be removed without leaving a bunch of goo.

    Something like this will work fine, because all the strips are only one piece and if you don`t like velcro it will be easier to fix to the frame because is just one piece and you will not need a lot of mounting tape.
    Of course is bit more difficult to do, because you have to drill the sheet and after make the cuts inside with a jigsaw for example.

    Toto,

    Just make sure you charge charge almost as much as the entire assembly for any replacement components and require them to ship their chair to Spain if new Velcro is required. After all, it could be considered an integral part of the frame and proprietary!

    I would do it to you free if you want stephen( i don`t forget the favor you did to me in the past), you only have to pay the CF and shipping.
    You don`t have problems because your Tilite had a seat bolt on, send me an email when you want one.

    I remember you guys, that is my experiment, so i fixed like i want, i could fixed with a lot of ways, but any would be easier and cheaper, anyway you don`t think it works ok, but it do.

    For example, you can see that when i did my ultralight brakes, i didn`t fixed the scissors to the tube with tape.

    Nia, this is an experiment, I can`t assure anyone the life of this seat, but I bet that will be long, of course if anyone wants one, i will do it for money, but i will not responsible for them.
    After a year with me in this seat with no problems, i could warranted, but at the moment remember that this is an experiment never done before.

    They are a few factors that could influence in the price, and the most important is your weight and if you want it in individual strips or all strips in one piece, all in one piece will be more expensive.

    I can`t give you a price at the moment, but if you are really interesting just send me a private message with your weight, the wide and deep of your seat, if you want it in one piece or individual strips, etc. and i will give you a price, but remember that CF is not cheap.

    Your TR seat is tension by strips, so remember that if you put this strips, your rear&front height will be up around 1/2".

    Thanks, I appreciate the offer but I'll save it for some consulting help if I order an Oracing. . . someday.
