I will be sitting like that on the bike I'm just starting to build, though lower with the pedals a bit farther forwards. More chopper-style, though not as extreme...cruiser motorcycle style. Should be a bit better than almost standing upright, as you point out.

I want an inflatable faring/aero shell...it could be taken on and off in moments, and take up no space. I'd use it for specifically long, higher-speed trips and could still enjoy open-frame styling the rest of the time.
