Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

Fairings?

I have a Rans V2 26 (LWB) and am wondering if anyone knows good sources for a fairing. I was able to find only a couple of web sites and only two different brands of fairings. Any help?

It's a pretty small market. If you found Zzipper and Wind Wrap, that's pretty much all there is unless you homebrew something.

The only other commercial fairing I'm aware of is the Streamer, made by HPVelotechnik.

It looks like it's designed for a SWB, though.
