I did the coast down tests today, but the spreadsheet is just shootin' in the dark without a valid rolling resistance. If I use 0.011 (at the lower end of a "normal" tire on a smooth road), then I get a Cd of 0.267, which would be pretty sweet -- but I'm guessing at the RR...

I still need to measure the area from a corrected photo -- I used the number from the CdA list: ~22 sq ft for now.
Sincerely, Neil
