Catbike Musashi - Put a sock on it!

We've fallen into the habit of coming up with weird names for the Catbike Musashi recumbent. We've had our Blusashi with the strikingly blue frame. We've had the Mushorti which featured the more recent short frame variation of the Musashi. And now, we have possibly the worst name pun yet... The Musocki.

Yes, Rob has taken a custom made body sock that we commissioned for a Trimuter BigWheel, paired it with an HP Velotechnik Streamer fairing, and mounted it all to his Musashi.

Benefits? Better aerodynamics and improved heat retention, which will come in handy as we enter the chilly Pennsylvania autumn. The only downside seems to be that the backs of the hands rub against the sock. Anyone looking to do the same should get in the habit of wearing at least light gloves in order to reduce mild skin abrasions over long rides.
