Weight balance and aerodynamics are key to a comfortable and efficient ride. A battery box in the frame helps with both. There are a couple options for aero bars. One is to move the bar end grips inboard, about 10 in. apart. The other is to make or buy TT style aero bars. If they are 7/8 in. diameter the throttle should mount easily. A true streamlined body is not on the market yet. You can use the HPV shell design program at recumbents.com to design a shell for an upright bike too.
