[Cyclelicious] New comment on Inverse recumbent.

Ed W has left a new comment on your post "Inverse recumbent":

In theory, a smaller frontal area would serve to reduce drag and allow an increase in speed, but it appears the rider is supported over a large portion of his lower abdomen. That would restrict breathing and effectively limit his endurance.

Chris Boardman's 'Superman' position was similar in that it reduced frontal area, yet allowed for better breathing.
