• About Recumbent Seat Fix •
After many painful attempts at long distance bike touring, and the discomfort of daily riding, I was desperate to find a more comfortable bike. Thus, I began riding recumbents in 1991. From there I've owned countless recumbents.
In the early '90's I opened the first dedicated recumbent shop in Sacramento, CA and a few years later assumed management of a shop in South Florida, turning it into one of the best selling recumbent dealers in the east. From there I was recruited by BikeE Corp. in Oregon, the largest recumbent manufacturer in the world, at that time. I've performed design work for recumbents and related accessories. Also an active freelance writer, my work saw it's way into various cycling publications and newspapers. In my recumbent background and experiences, I've been fortunate to have known many of the giants of the recumbent and HPV scene.
In more recent years I performed various upholstery projects and refurbishing industrial sewing machines, all as a hobby. Out of convenience, and necessity, my upholstery ability, sewing machine knowledge and recumbent expertise came together. I found there were many perfectly good, recumbents needing only a new mesh seat cover to be back on the road. Consequently, RSF (Recumbent Seat Fix) was born. Though a part-time venture, RSF seats are in use throughout the USA and Canada as well as the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
The sale of RSF product allow me to make donations to Guardians of Rescue. From extreme animal hoarding and abuse situations to natural disaster rescues to bringing home the adopted pets of soldiers in conflict zones. Guardian Of Rescue are known as 'The Bad Asses Of Animal Rescue' doing what needs to be done. For more info, or to provide direct support, please go to their website: Guardians Of Rescue.
