Interesting. We really do mainly battle the problem of a vehicle in which every part moves in the airstream. Nearly every problem on streamlined uprights seems to stem from this. Recumbents aren't as bad, and velomobiles are downright doable.

Maybe those teardrop speed-skier pants would be effective on a DF, if you could keep from sweating. It's so hard to piece-meal the entire vehicle around a moving rider.
