    Short of fabricating new brackets, you might be able to use a solid seat pan with spacers to get the dump correct. You'll have to change front height with different casters and/or forks to get the frame/fork geometry back to square. Also, TiLite has a new adjustable TR, iirc, the TRA. Maybe that has brackets you could use?

    I was just messing with the rear wheel size. changing tires etc.
    The biggest issue was keeping the caster geometry correct as the caster angle is non-adjustable.
    I ended up getting some axle brackets fabricated.. a little over the top I admit, but I wanted to cover my bases should I decide to change wheels and tires in either direction

    This is how the axle looked before I started.


    This is the bracket I fabricated.



    and in place.

    NW-Will, that is impressive work. Send me your left overs.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Wow! Impressive! What is the weight of newly invented bracket? It seems that you can adjust the height at different points.

    Thanks. I am now googling for the manual of new adjustable TR.

    We'll check it out Friday Jung. I'm sure we can make the chair much more efficient than it is now. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Thanks, Pat. I really enjoyed meeting with you today. I also don't know what to say for your such a kind help regarding my wheels and for information of Ukukele group.
    Your suggestion of my getting tension adjustable backrest seems a good solution for my seat problem.
    I will contact Jeff Adams as you guided. I am eagar to try Icon and hope to find a Icon demo near Seattle.

    See more often since we live near. I got so tired after rolling (walking?) around downtown almost 2 hours for my daughter's Halloween adventure.
