Calhoun Cycle, who created and sells the fabulous Evolution handlebars, sells an "Evolution Seat Base". It's basically the supremely comfortable RANS seat base with modified hardware to fit Burley and BikeE recumbents. It also has a microtilt adjustment to it. From their pic of it on their webpage, it looks like the RANS seatbase really snugs up against the Burley seatback--not much of a gap at all. They sell it for about $110, which, imho, is a hell of a deal for greatly improving rider comfort on your 'bent. I used to own a Burley Django, and, while its Corbin leather covered seatbase looked cool and was comfortable enough for me, I knew(from having owned a RANS Wave before) that it was nowhere near as comfortable as the RANS seat base. If I still had the Django now, I would have already bought the Evolution seat base for it.
Here's the link to Calhoun Cycle's webpage for their Evolution product line. Just scroll down some, and you'll see the seat base. Below the link(if I'm successful) should be the pic of the seat base, which is borrowed from their webpage.
'Hope this may be of help, Steve...if you decide to get it, your uncomfortable "in the gap" days may soon be over!
