Mine is much slimmer and more athletic-looking. Somehow, I haven't found the "add aero-belly" feature.

That looks great. You should use the Orange Zwift helmet.

you can tell your friend that there are no Zwift helmet laws. So he can let the Watopia winds flow through his hair (if he has any).

A local friend already looks like The Dude from The Big Lebowski, and his Zwift avatar enhances that appearance. It's kinda funny, especially with his choice of avatar bike -- it appears to be a 1980s style time trial funny bike, with reverse sloping top tube, bullhorns, etc. In real life that would be uncomfortable for long distances and odd for quick handling in an aggressive bunch ride. But on Zwift nobody knows you're a dog.
