Default Recumbentntrike.

I've made 12 recumbents, three two wheelers and nine trikes, this is my last build.

For this build, I included rear suspension and tank steering. The frame is of 32mm square tube, swing arm is 40 x 20 tube. Trike weight is 19kgs, same weight as the aluminium framed MTB I took the cycle parts off.

Some details. Cycle componentry is Deore, hydraulic disk brakes, tank steering, nine position adjustable suspension, two degrees caster and camber, adjustable toe in via left and right threads on tie rods, 20" wheels at front, 700c wheel at back, 9 speed cassette, three speed chain ring, shaped aluminium seat back with lumbar support, approximately 2.5 chains running through Delrin chain guides mounted on ball bearings, plain Delrin bearings in kingpins and steering arms. Wheelbase 1200cm, track 80cm.

The trike is now retired due to crook hips.

IYou've built another bike. Congratulations. For tricycles, side-holding seats work better.

Profiled backrest is used for comfort? And it shouldn't look like this:

Garbage, that's a commercially available seat, you're assuming everyone is the same height and shape - wrong!

Why don't you try making one, custom made to fit your shape. Too hard?

I've made 12, how many have you actually made, not pieced together with bits of discarded bicycles?

Looking at your build, I don't think you should be giving advice!
