Sometimes I spot cool hacks or bike products but am unable to get a picture. Just such an occurrence happened a few days ago when I emerged from the subway and saw a rider going by with a windshield attached to the front handlebars. My phone was buried and a was carrying stuff so I did not have the time to take a photo. I was intrigued because it was a very sophisticated shield, definitely not homemade, and had not seen such a product before.
I did some Interweb searching and could not find an exact match for what I saw, but this is the closest thing I found. The one I saw extended higher in order to provide face protection without have to bend down.
The product in the picture is produced by Zipper Road Fairings, a company I had not heard of before, and they are a bit pricey. Any readers have experience with windshields for bicycles? Bought something off the shelf? Hacked your own? Do they work?
Comments are welcome or send us an email, we'd love a reader review. And if anyone in Boston knows of the rider I saw, have her contact us. She was riding north on Dartmouth toward Comm Ave =)
