Thumbs up aero wheels

hi, yes aero wheels on bicycles, i have seen at manchester velodrome, was going to only enclose the hub centre to outer rim, each side,
the rear disc andsprocket outside of the alloy shallow cones, wheelshields.
have just found a comment by hayes, re diesel bike, about low revs and maximising torque to vehicle requirements, thats why my 850 norton gets magic mpg at 2 to 2,500rpm!!!
also at 30mph the enfield streamlining gave 45% improvement on mpg, low revs small carb, and good torque from 350cc engine.
thanks for reply lots to think about.will make cardboard profiles when i remove each wheel, record all sizes, and acquire some alloy sheet.
best wishes for 2016
