"aero disc" wheel covers(3 posts)

"aero disc" wheel coversWise

Hi, I was wondering if anyone still makes or sells those rear wheel disc covers that seemed popular back in the early 90s.

I've been looking around for some just so I can experiment with em, but unfortunately it looks like they have totally disappeared from the market.

Any leads on where I could pick some up would be appreciated

Just a little food for thought: those covers DO impove your aerodynamics when going forward, but act like a sail in a crosswind. Even a moderate sidewind or buffeting from a passing truck can make such a bike nearly impossible to ride. Thankfully, few people ride on the roads with them anymore.
