My Spectrum has Ishiwata. 022 if I recall correctly.

TK had access to SL and 531 too of course when making his custom bikes, but he chose Ishi.

Trikes are significantly slower. For me, average speeds are about 15 to 20% different.

My 2 wheel recumbents are higher, though, and the low altitude of trikes lends to a higher perception of...

I have not...

Are you really asking us to psychoanalize you over the internet?

Or do you have a different question we actually have some hope of answering?

I should add that I enjoy riding these two bikes equally well. They feel pretty different, but I guess that's the point and why I have no intention of getting rid of one. I like variety.

Those look nice. I was a little disappointed to see that the rails don't seem to allow for the saddle to go back further than on a Brooks. That's my one complaint about Brook's leather saddles.
