Velomobile excellence!

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius --- and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."

 - Albert Einstein

A great quote from a great mind.

My goal for Veloci Velomobile is to make a velomobile which is practical, functional but yet elegant in it's design. Having ridden a couple of other 'hard shell' monocoque velomobiles (AeroRider & a home build fully enclosed similar to the AeroRider) I found both these machines too heavy and being fully enclosed too claustraphobic. To keep thing lightweight I will be using a space-framed chassis with suspension on all wheels and mounting a non-load bearing lightweight shell made of coroplast/corflute.

I really like John Tetz's work with velomobiles and he has produced a one-off velomobile that is lightweight, fast & practical.
