Common chassis open or enclosed wheels

The great thing about designing my own velomobile is that I can have one of two options for the bodyshell. I can have an open wheel design like the one on the left or an enclosed version on the right. Both use the same chassis. The advantage for speed goes with the enclosed version, but style and practicality the winner has to be the open wheel design velomobile. What's your favourite?


  1. a neat design, the open wheel looks quite city capable. What chassis are you aiming at? What weight do you expect?

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I am going to build the open wheel version as I feel it is more practical. The chassis is s semi monocoque of my own design. Target weigh is 22kg (48lbs).
