I'm trying to find a headrest for my old-style Challenge Hurricane (the one with the big hole in the seat where the headrest ought to fit). Elan Recumbents have one in their shop in Nijmegen but it's a long way to go and I'm having problems getting one online. Anybody out there have one they want to sell?

Hi Coco -

Can you post a pic so I can check if what I have is what you want? I can't find one on the Elan/Challenge site.

Ah, no sorry: mine is the Optima version. You presumably need the very specific mounting brackets for the Challenge seat.

Sorry I couldn't help. Bikefix in London are still Challenge dealers - they don't list the headrest on their website but may be able to get it for you.

Thanks for looking all the same Andrew. I've managed to make contact with Hans at Elan and he's going to post one out. Why they put a big hole in the seat right there is beyond me. I can't see what purpose it serves other than to stop me fitting a standard headrest.
