I was considering making a small trailer for a mountain bicycle I have lying around, so I can use it to commute everywhere instead of taking public transport or resorting to cars. I figured that rain might be a problem (for me, not for the trailer, which is a modular shell-based design), so I wonder whether it is possible to make a complete fairing - out of, say, Coroplast or ABS plastic or fiberglass - for the bicycle? Not only might this provide complete weather protection, it could also result in more visibility on the road (that Wall of Remembrance thread is really scary), and a small edge in terms of aerodynamics, safety, and security.
I'm aware of the zzipper, veltop, and velotop - something like that could work, but what I really want is an all-enclosing hardshell (no bodysock), with some aspects that can be adjusted (while riding) in case of crosswinds.
Does something like this exist? Can it be made? The closest thing I see is the Lightning F-40 and F-90, but those are recumbents, and it's a bodysock design. The Wikipedia article on bicycle fairings as well as Google searches weren't very encouraging either.
Thank you ^^
(Not sure what subforum this topic was supposed to go to, I'm afraid.)
