The first post is my sentiment exactly , improve the aero rather then add more battery and larger motor.
except aero doan help you climb.
i'm with you on the sentiment but instead of a simply passive setup, some active anti-drag would give more bang for the buck. (hi freq kV power supply may be problematic.)
and i may have miissed it but no ones even mentioned something as cheap & dirty as serrated edges or hyperbolic math.
Serrated edges are new to me. I thought about aerotabs usefulness for directing the air stream but im not sure if there is any low speed viability to them ,probably not.
What idea do you have with serrated edges ?
I like the sounds of hill climbing power with good aero for maximum efficiency
Its the efficiency that I like more then the speed gain. I look at the speed gain as a way to measure drag reduction.
In my case Im prepping the bike for distance runs with the goal of watt reduction at cruising speed and better headwind performance.
