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.
