Ordered a headrest for my 559. Order was processed quickly and had it on the bike a couple days later.
Solid piece, easy to adjust, and light weight. However the head rest is a little bit small for me. I modified and added a new bigger head rest, 1" each on each end.
Hi - I really like that the new neck rest has a better height adjustment lever. My difficulty is with the angle of the neck pad. I had installed Utah Trikes’ extension kit to turn my 2010 Catrike Speed into a trike with a larger 26” rear wheel, which has given me a bit more speed with those 16” front tires. Since doing so, I am having difficulty having the right angle for my neck rest. The angle I most prefer causes the stationary bar on the rest press against the tire. Ive adjusted the height a bit and angled the base of the rest as far forward toward me as I can, which keeps the bar off my rear tire. However, the headrest is not as comfortable and I have to sit up higher to use it effectively. I wish there was a way to get the base of the neck rest off the rear bar to give me more wiggle room to angle the neck rest for my comfort. My entire cervical spine is fused from C2-C7. In addition, my lumbar spine is fused from C4-7. Any suggestions?
Hi Pamela, glad to hear you like the new neck rest. I understand you are having fitting issues since your rear wheel was changed to a larger size.
