Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Considering Titanium to homebuild a recumbent trike, Tadpole or Greenspeed design
1) Any advice other than the fact that Ti is hard to weld and expensive?
2) Any design adjustments I'll need to take into account?
3) What will the estimated frame weight be? Best guess!
I am a newbie to bents and actually ride standard geometry, but my wife needs recumbent due to Arthritis in the spine, and a trike due to only 1 inner ear due to tumor removal. Bents are comfortable, but I'm just more secure, myself, on standard geometry! The intent is to build her a touring trike to ride with me.
