One more: I also analyzed the effect of wind on climbing speed at constant power. The result I got, for the case where wind resistance was a relatively small fraction of total resistance, was:

ds = dsw f / 2

where ds is the change in bike speed, dsw is the change in wind speed (referenced to the bike direction), and f is the fraction of power going into wind resistance (f << 1).
