Checking the BROL front page, I find this from Jeff Bales [BROL Member Goblin]:
Quoted from the front page article:
It is designed to be aerodynamic without being overly large and heavy. You’ll notice the unique design that allows the 700 rear wheel to protrude without being faired. Obviously, for even better aerodynamics, riders can use wheel discs. By keeping the fairing tucked in behind the seat I can keep the weight down and get the speed up.
Just as I thought I was finished with Silk’s exterior, there is something else to consider. Of course, they have it in black.

I have been asked how much does Silk weigh with “all that stuff”? I weighed her on setup and will do so again next week [touring and lite mode]. I expect the weight to be within 5 pounds of the light mode setup weight of 51.5 lbs. On the Niagara Rally, I hosted her [touring mode] above my head. I’m up to her weight, whatever it may be.
