Almost two years ago during the summer of 2004, I began fiddling with SRM power meter based field tests in an effort to see how this methodology might be used to evaluate the aerodynamic characteristics of different cycling positions. I was never really satisfied with the results I obtained along the way – the downfall, for me, of this testing approach was too much variability (e.g. – even the slightest breeze effects results) and therefore, too much time involved to generate meaningful results. In an effort to reduce and/or compensate for ambient wind conditions, I attempted to measure wind speed while conducting my field test trials. The wind speed measurement didn’t seem to help things much; however, along the way I was successful in demonstrating that the flow in front of a cyclist stagnates.
