I spotted an velomobile yesterday that I thought was labeled Aero Tech. Is there such a thing?

Joel, Rob Wood raced it the year we held the championships at the old AMC test track, I think in Burlington WI. Probably about 1997. I submit my guess at Boris's last name: Zakeldiev. He is a brilliant engineer who struggled at first after immigrating to America from Moscow. Eventually doing very well. I think I remember he sold those molds to someone in Texas. A neat design, but not fast.

Go to Google Images and type in "aerolope". Is this the vehicle you spotted? The shell was designed by a Russian aircraft engineer named Boris Zakoldev (or something close to that). I think a company in Arizona (Glas-Tec?) was making fiberglass shells based on this design some years ago, and some recumbent riders were using Turner short wheelbase bikes inside them. Someone brought one to a race at the Northbrook Velodrome in a previous geological era.

Or maybe you saw something totally different...

Safe riding,
Joel Dickman

These three prevent most accidents: seeing, being seen, & (usually) common sense.

It was probably just advertising Aero Tech - a maker of bike clothing that has recumbent specific items.
