Seat Mounted Cycle Fairing
Attaches under the seat and bends upwards around back of cyclist restricting rider to aerodynamic position.
This rigid fairing curves up around the back of the rider from
its mounting under the seat and ends at a lower position in
front of the handlebars. The curve and rigidity of the
materials keeps it from deforming. It protects the rider from
wheel spray, the weather and forces the rider to adopt
aerodynamic riding posture.

||But it prevents the rider from adopting a more comfortable
position when flat-out speed is not top priority.
||Not if its on a hinge and can swing back provididing
maximum back support.
||All I can think of is Rick Moranis in Spaceballs.
||That must be sexually frustrating.
