Please do not put words in my mouth... Only steel will fit in the space I have in my build. I considered steel, aluminum, glass, and graphite, designing acceptable legs in all four materials. All were too bulky once you had hardpoints designed except for the steel.I know Billski prefers steel, but I think you can get a composite leg to work satisfactorily.
I agree that graphite rod can be made to work as gear legs. You will have to get fancy around the anchors and for the axle mounts.
