archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

The Finer Recliner neck rest

One of the really fun and cool things about having your own recumbent tricycle as an adult is that you can customize it as you please! These rigs are just a tad bit more sophisticated than the ones we all rode during the days before Kindergarten, and we don’t even have to ask our parents for permission to fix ’em up! So, here is a cool custom idea for ya’ …

If you happen to be in the market for a neck rest, either because your trike did not come with one, or because you feel the one you have is not really as comfy as you’d like, well, this may be your lucky day! There are a lot of triangular dudes and dudettes out there who swear by neck rests made by a fellow up in Washington by the name of Steve Sussman. You might want to give his website a look-see if you have a mind to rest your neck muscles on the next day ride. BTW: you can even have it custom embroidered! How cool is that?. check ’em out!

    Hey Steve, Thanks for letting us all know about ‘The Finer Recliner’ website. I spoke to Steve Sussman today and am ordering three (3) of his neckrests for my 2010 Catrike Road ‘YELLOW BEAST’, My 2014 Catrike 700 ‘MANGO MADNESS’, and my son’s 2012 Catrike Pocket ‘BLUE STREAK’. I’m really impressed with these products.

    Thanks again,

  3. Thanks, Steve. This is a pretty small community, and in my experience it’s personal recommendations from folks like you and positive comments from customers that matter most when selling niche products like ours. I really appreciate your kind comments and your referral.
    Best regards,
    Steve Sussman

  4. You are most welcome Steve! Anyone named Steve must be a good guy, right? Gotta’ help the Steves of the world, haha. I tried one of your neckrests on a Catrike 700 back in March of this year (at the shop where I bought mine), and I really liked your product! The embroidery option is really cool too! Keep keepin’ the triking community happy my friend. See ya’ …
