I use the utopia back rest and have had no complaints. It does look like a small area for the passenger. So far three different people have been back their.
IF I buy a back rest (and I miss mine from my TC) I believe the Utopia is the way to go from the posts I read. I COULD be mistaken but I think I read somewhere that CycleOps was building a riders backrest as well but I will be darn if I can find that post. I know I have seen nothing but positive on Utopia such as A-Dogs post.
Alot of cash to drop anyway you slice it but I know I WONT be buying the VV stocker. As for smaller space, that has been the comment I have recieved from the back seat as well and I know my riders have been a bit more pressed up against me so I believe it may be true.
