Aerodynamic Drag Testing Using a Power Meter

Earlier this year, with the assistance of Dr Andy Coggan, I put together a protocol and spreadsheet to assist those with power meters to undertake their own aero drag testing.

The sheet can be found at the trainwithpower.net site here:
CdA-Crr.xls

All instructions are contained within the Excel file. Thanks to Charles Howe for developing the trainwithpower site and hosting the sheet.

The online discussion at the Fixed Gear Fever Forum can also be viewed here:
FGF Forum Discussion on aero drag testing

Enjoy!

Is there an advantage to your method over the "Chung" method?
