Default Re: Getting Aero - Speed Gains

Today, I got the milk crate nicely mounted using some aluminum bar & angle aluminum. Also incorporated some cheap handlebar mounts made for mounting water bottle cages to handlebars. I can now carry one of my two plastic gas cans (as large as 2 gallons) for long travels without gas stations fill-ups with extra room for stuff. Now I want to get some plastic fairing material to mount over & in front of the basket to get aero...
Still researcing blown lexan type fairings from ZZipper & Mueller, but also might just experiment with some thin plastic sheet (like those roll up snow sleds) or coroplast to create a decent shape to break the wind...
