I’m going to take a few days early spring to test a few different things on my road bike. Has anyone done a protocol that is quick comparison, do you bring your laptop out to testing site to upload and compare data? Chung vs. aerotune?
I’d also like to ask for a few thoughts on different things I can possibly test outside of what I’m listing:
Helmet - Currently using Abus Gamechanger. I am interested in POC Ventral Spin.
Skinsuit - using my club suit. Going to test zipper up vs lengths down (for hot weather)
Gloves - club gloves vs. no gloves
Wheels - just for funsies
Shoes - I am interested in Giro empire SLX. Will try with/without covers, sock variations etc. but I’m looking for an aero shoe that fits a wide foot. Any suggestions?
After equipment, going to test bike setups.
- bottle Cage placements
- stack height & fit sustainability (subjective)
- and the “inward tilt” shifters with a few different hand positions.
Does anyone have experience using aerotune vs. goldencheetah Chung method?
- I plan to use aerotune for faster comparisons between variables. Jotting down notes between trials. But from my reading, Chung is tried and true. Maybe would be useful for more granular comparisons?
- I’m not looking for specific CDA just… “which is better, this or that?”
I just rode on a road that’s low traffic, high trees, very slight rolling hill and good road. Going to use that stretch.
Once testing protocol is solidified then I can have fun with TT testing later
