So why wouldn't they make it more aerodynamic instead of looking like a mail truck?
The aerodynamics are awful. Not good for headwinds.
There are already many velomobiles built for speed. This one is designed for ease of entry, visibility, cargo space, and all-weather protection. The cargo space is 4 times more than any other velomoble. The aerodynamics are not great, but they are a little better than a regular bike.
I agree with Dan. I love this design. I want function, weather protection and cargo capability to haul groceries, tools, etc. Most of the available velomobiles seem a big too racy and fragile for what I want. It would be great to have kit/plan option.
