Seems weird to me.

    I don't consider it safe. I'm thinking I'll ride my AeroZ in with the TR in tow. I'll occupy it only in the presence of the PT. I've been staring at it, and cannot get comfortable; my AeroZ invites me to sit in it.

    Primo is TiLite's NoCharge 559 tire. I plan to use my MagicWheels with Schwalbe MPE on the TR. The Shadow wheels with Primo tires will be my backup wheel set.

    The rear axle installs with amputee adapters, which are available only in black; I expected them. What I didn't expect (and doesn't conform with TiLite's CAD) is the black antitip receivers mounted to the amputee adapters.

    Good idea of riding your Aero in Chas.. Will show how inefficient the Tr is for you.

    Yes, I don't like the antitip receivers mounting too, they should have made the antitip receivers mounting exactly like what you drew. Your idea looks so much better.
    Life is meaningles, though you create the purpose.

    Thanks. I just don't feel safe in the TR - I already changed the front axle position, and I could not adjust the antitip to match. Very few things on the TR are adjustable - axle position is one, and now I cannot track the axle with the antitip making the axle position fixed. That's why I'm not riding it.

    What I drew is actually TiLite's design. They did not build to their own design . . .

    I think I'll have the TiLite rep ride the TR before I do, and see if he feels safe . . .

    you mean you know the antitip receivers mount to the bracket?

    Yes, fixing its position relative to the rear axle.

    Approved CAD shows it mounting here into a longer lower tube (which has been cut off), and the users manual explicitly states it will slide in and out:

    Even if TiLite remakes the frame, this pan will still work. No Velcro; it just sits in place nicely. The side guards hold it down; even though side guards are the removable style, I wedged them in pretty good to keep them from flexing and rubbing the tires (1/2" tire spacing).

    My aluminum seatpan:

    The chair fits perfectly I'm just afraid to use it anywhere but my living room.

    Even TiLte's eStore shows the parts I thought I was getting:

    i would still put something under the seat pan to cushion it against the frame, even if the velco isnt needed that much it will help protect the frame whilst helping keep it in place, also i duno if its just me but i would want to round those corners off :P
