I for one am a VERY Satisfied Customer of AeroDon. I ordered "2" of his headrests, one for my Aero M5 seat, oooops, maybe I shouldn't reveal that... and one for my "Secret project" for Sebring 08... No offence towards Larry's headrest; but I liked the more adjustable capability headrest that AeroDons offers.

AeroDon,

Got my headrest today. NICE!! Have it all mounted up - was simple and easy. COMFY!!!!! This will easily make riding loooong stretched of smooth road riding bliss. Since I am a tinkerer I took liberty to make a few slight mods... inserted some very small speakers that I have into the holes on each side of the foam. Stereo!!! I don't ride with tunes on very often but at breaks, or when working on the bike I think it will rock! :) They get just loud enough to be "talking volume" so perfect to tune in NPR or a few tunes without having anything in the ears. I also sacrificed a sock as a cover.

Here are a few pics of my install. Anyone wondering if you should get this or not should jump and get one. I did the Brain Box mod and that fits perfect as well. My only comment on the design would be to replace the fabric type velcro with some of that industrial type velco that "clicks" into place... that stuff is bombproof.

THANKS again Don this is a great addition!!!!

You know, I have often thought about mounting speakers in the pad, but didn't have the speakers, or the time to pursue it.  Where did you get the speakers?
 
And, I think Mr. Ikem was the first to use a sock to cover his pad.  Personally I like the foam, since it doesn't absorb moisture or sun screen.
 
Nice Mod!!!

Thanks!

I was not going to do a cover, but figured (until i think of something else) that it was the best way to conceal/help keep in the small speakers.

I am not sure where I got these tiny speakers.. I think ebay a few years ago... each speaker is no bigger than a nickel and they don't need seperate power...

AeroDon,
 
I too am happy with the headrest.  I found, contrary to the instructions, that it was easier to loosely fasten the bottom ties before the top ones.  I had no problem passing the ties through.  My only regret is that I am not a smoother rider because my head moves as I pedal and that is uncomfortable when leaning back on the headrest.  Coasting on a long downhill was great.

I have a question regarding how the headrest is attached to the EM seat.
Is it attached to the frame? Attached only by zipties? Any photos available regarding attachment?
Thanks in-advance for your help.
Don

It attaches to the top of the frame with two zip ties and attaches to the back mesh (where it already has zip ties) on the bottom.  Using the mesh to support the bottom provides a little flex to absorb vibration.

hi,
I just purchase my new  2007 giro 26.  My first upgrade would be the ADEM headrest for the Euromesh.  Is it still available?  Please let me know the details.  You can email me at "thelimsndavis@yahoo.com"

Thanks

  Let me also state how pleased I am with the ADEM Headrest.  Installation took maybe 10 minutes even with the modifications to a brain bag, and its been a big help, especially late in a 400K.  Thanks Don!

I've had my head rest for quite a while now and like it a lot! One small issue I had was in removing my bag quite often to refill my water bladder, the glue holding the velcro let go. The replacement Gorilla Glue didn't last too long either so I inserted a dowel into the head rest and fastened the velcro and plate to the head rest with a flat head wood screw after removing just a bit of the velcro for the screw. This, along with some more glue, and I can remove and re-attach w/out fear of it coming loose again. TNX Don, for a great product.

My few real world rides so far using the headrest make me really believe it is a "must have" accessory.... it is great on the long coasts or just cruising to set my head back and relax...
 
Since I have added the tiny speakers in there for some light tunes - it doubles its use even when my head is not resting on it! The volume is perfect for the quiet sections - traffic is easily heard still as well. If there is too much traffic the music is drowned out entirely - but thats OK, I really don't want it to be too loud anyway.
 
I revised my cover for it - I wound up using a thick black nylon. Cut a section of it in half the width of the foam, tiny zip tied the ends, cut a small slit in the middle of it, and turned it inside out and then stretched it over the foam.... nice and clean looking - but don't tell my Hammer why she is missing a pair of her nylons!!!

Velcro IS OUT...SnapLock IS IN!!! 2007/05/17 20:02:22 (permalink)
Product development is SO MUCH FUN!!!  I have made upward of 50 ADEM headrests of various models and have received no complaints.  The most common comment, however is," You should use Industrial Strength velcro to attach the pad to the support bracket."  Well I HAVE been using industrial strength, the best I could find.  And while I know of only one person (Uh-Um, John ) to lose a pad, I agree that the attachment could be better.  Now, there is no competition arould for the ADEM, but still, it is my baby and I want it to work as well as possible.  So, I began searching and finally found a better attachment tape.  3M SnapLock is really neat stuff.  It used numerous spikes, like velcro, but the spikes have mushroom shaped heads that interlock when pressed together.  Where velcro gave a somewhat mushy attachment, SnapLock shaps together and stays put.
 
I have adapted my headrest to SnapLock and really like the results.  If, after a week or so of riding with it, I see no problems, all future ADEM headrests will use the SnapLock tape.
AeroDon aims to please!!!

Hahaha ADEM's first recall!!!  If I switch out my Carbon seat to a Euromesh seat which I'm really serious of switching to (for seat/back) breathing I'm definately going to go with an ADEM headrest.  I have Larry's headrest for my carbon (M5) seat and it works GREAT!
