Hybrid to Super Aero TT bike

My hybrid was bored, so I converted it to a TT bike, -the bullhorns/aeorbars. It looks ugly, but i think if i paint it it will be much better. I still have to do the fork, which I will do in the style of Trek's Speed Concept (Integrated braking).
I wonder how much more aerodynamic it really is?



Shots of the wheel, and the seat tube.
I modeled the seat tube on the Cervelo TT/Aero road bikes

Don't worry, this was my cheap Goodwill hybrid, my real bike is still fine.

Yep, I'll make millions, my employees will have to eat pizza daily so we have enough boxes. Great employee benefits.

i like where this going. Incorporate the shipping materials into the bike construction to reduce waste!

Me thinks that all of the tape and rough seams between the cardboard will make it less aero.
