Thread: New TR3

  1. #1

    New TR3

    See all the specs here: http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showpos...7&postcount=44

    Main differences new vs. old:
    85 v. 80
    11" V front v. 13" tapered
    25" v. 24" rear wheels
    5" v. 4" casters
    +3/4" v. +1" frame
    20" v. 19.5 fsf

    I had the chair sent to ADI and had their brakes installed.

    Unfortunately they made a mistake on my projection hand-rims, so they are not on yet in the pictures. I only sat in the chair about 10-15 minutes thus far. Te CAD shows a COG of 2.5" but I had it changed to 2.25 before they sent it out.










    In contrast to my TR...

    You're looking healthy, man!

    The new chair is nice! You look comfortable in it.

    I see you have new speakers since the older photos as well. Nice ribbon tweets.

    Congrats, Brian! Looks great and the fit looks spot on. Look forward to reading your detailed review.

    One small niggle: The TiLite frame guards are already looking a little squishy. Nature of that beast. I really like the stitched-up guards that Oracing uses. They look great and I suspect they remain in place better.

    That chair looks good on you, man! The fit looks well dialed-in. Your hard work shows, and I hope the change in specs really works for you.

    The frame guards are squishy because of the Frog Leg forks. I have a TR2 with Frog Leg forks and impact guards, and it does the same thing.

    The chair is obviously custom, but I don't think the impact guards are.

    Brian, your chair looks great.

    Thanks all. I concur Essie. NorthQuad, are you calling me fat?

    I agree that TiLite's guards leave a lot to be desired. I really like those that you posted Stephen, but the question is, will they fit the smaller tubing of a TR. The reason they are already looking squishy is because it came with a leg strap but I already ditched it...we'll see how long the guards last before they go.

    Congratulations Brian! Know you put a LOT of thought into your TR replacement. Leg stance looks particularly comfortable.
