Been meaning to photograph one of these for a while. My question is : Have You seen these at YOUR local Supermarket?








I guess it doesn't need pedals if you can get your Mom to push you, eh?

The point is, the technology is here, and something like this could be made with pedals.

Again, have you seen one of these before?

I've had this passed along to me:

The item in question is the Plastic Fairing, which is made by Rotational Molding. Apparently, there is a recumbent manufacturer which has been making Roto-Molded fairings for about a year now.

One of those pulled up next to me at a stop light once. It looked like a giant white egg! I was so surprised by it. I think it had a window roof with a windshield wiper.
