    • 1. How much does it weigh?

      As pictured in this setup it is around 23.5lbs.

      Barebones (no water bottles, cages, spare tube and tools) it is 22lbs.

      2. I assume fairings are illegal and I've heard recumbents have better aerodynamics. Any thoughts on the matter?

      This bike is fully legal for triathlon racing, but isn’t legal for UCI racing (time trials or draft-legal triathlons) due to its geometry. Adding any fairings to this bike would make it illegal for triathlons as well.

      Recumbent bikes are in fact even more aerodynamic but they can’t be used for triathlon.

    • Removing the upper shell of the second storage exposes the bottom half that has a separator for salts or tablets so that they don’t get mixed up with other nutrition. They are accessible via a smaller slit, while the larger one is for bars and gels:

    • The top and bottom of the storage connects with snapping insert tabs and is a bit tricky to mount. Need to apply quite a bit of force to disengage the tabs.
