Yes, awesome. Great video!

I love how aerodynamic & efficient velomobiles are. But my biggest hang-up is the idea of riding one of these in traffic. I just don't believe they are as visible as bikes or cars. My commute is 24 miles, a mix of bike path & city core & pot-holed 4-lane industrial roads.

I have a lot of risky hobbies - I own five different helmets. But the two things I've promised my girlfriend are that I won't take up base jumping, and I won't commute on a recumbent
