Does that work? That's just the first issue. I'm attached some screenshots of the bikes, but mind you there are about three times more upright streamliner photos in the issue than just these.

They give you some idea of the relative speediness of certain designs, partial fairings, etc. because the recorded speeds are listed.

If it were me, I'd look at extending that egg pod down a little to cover your legs, put an aero disc over a wheel and find a bulbous shaped piece of material to use as a nose cone. But then again, I'd just buy a recumbent.
