    Radio, you need to lighten up. Toto obviously sees this as a safety issue - it's not personal.

    An answer it's not worth.

    The TiLite Al pan was a sandwich design. I'm not sure how the honeycomb was configured or what it was made of -- it was the center of the sandwich and not visible.

    The Bobby Hall pan was a solid 6061 Al sheet -- very stiff.

    The Dragon Plate cf is considerably lighter weight and just as stiff.

    FYI - manhole covers are circles so they can never fall down the manhole; hexes could fall down. Manhole-cover shape is not a strength issue.

    Stephen,

    I am interested in getting a Dragon plate. I looked at their website but cannot figure out what to order. Here is something I found. https://dragonplate.com/ecart/produc...D=5749&cID=201
    Can you tell me what you ordered. My chair is 15w x 15d. Then, what size plate should I order? I am not sure if they do custom cut.

    By the way, I weight only 113 pounds and want to have the solid pan as thin as I can. I plan to cover it with lubber or leather sheet so that it does not move around under the cushion.

    Your recommendation is appreciated.

    Jon

    go for 1/8" thick

    An eighth of an inch of carbon fiber for 113 pounds is overkill.

    Get aluminum at 1/8 of an inch from onlinemetals.com in the dimensions you need and save yourself a lot of hassle and money.

    Hi Jon, the carbon fiber seat pans we offer through Bike-On do not come from Dragon Plate. We use an independent carbon fiber fabricator who makes these for us as one-offs. The plate thickness is 5/32" and the width and depth dimensions are custom to the user. We can also have a series of "vents" (width-wise routs) cut into the pan to remove additional weight. I use Velcro to attach my CF pans to the frame. You can apply small Velcro strips to the top of the pan to match up with the Velcro attachments that typically are on the underside of the cushion cover to keep the cushion from shifting.

    If you have more questions, please email me at stephen@bike-on.com

    Will your CF fabricator make an ergo pan? Seat =17"w x 16"d with 22.5 degree bend for ergo at 6" from back edge of seat.
