Just wondering-from the schematics above it looks like this is going to be a FWD recumbent-and most recumbents with mismatched wheels usually have RWD ging to the large wheel for better top-end speed.

Given the FWD nature of the plan above, why not use a larger fork-wheel diameter and a smaller rear wheel, or two even wheels for a slight rise in height (less Aero, but better traffic visability and balance overall)? any changes to the geometry resulting can always readjusted back with a few small frame bends to correct...
