    That's kinda neato, phil!
    I've rode mcs equipped with them before. It's kinda interesting.
    Different, for sure!
    And I've seen more than a few times when I really wished I had one! lol

    I put a windshield on my bike too. Actually, it creates less drag, being more aerdodynamic.

    Sadly, one bracket broke, and the plastic screen cracked near the bolt holes.

    I need to brace the screen better.:-||

    a fairing on a bicycle makes it so your able to go faster my lowering the amount of air your pushing around....
    makes speeds like this possible on pedal power alone
    Current WHPSC Records:
    In 2009, Sam Whittingham broke his own record again for a human powered speed of 82.819 MPH!
    In 2010, Barbara Buatois broke her own record, with a women's human powered speed of 75.69 MPH.
    In 2011, Greg Westlake broke his own record with an arm powered world speed record of 45.68 MPH.

    Ok, name please.

    Your windscreen has MUCH better frame support than mine did.

    BTW, I could coast MUCH farther on flat paved road with the screen.
