This is a project that's codenamed "Chung-On-A-Stick". It's meant to provide you with a "portable wind tunnel". We've achieved the first step, which is to make a sensor that can sense yaw and airspeed of the wind impinging on a bike. The sensor also broadcasts its data in ANT+ format, meaning that maybe one day your Garmin 500 will pick up its signal!

Aero Market Survey

Greetings!

Remember Chung-on-a-Stick? Well, the project has turned into a
commercial venture called Alphamantis Technologies. We're almost
finished our first alpha product cycle, and we're looking to get some
feedback about the aero field testing market.

If you're a coach or power user who's ever computed a Crr or CdA, then
we'd like to hear from you. If you'd like to help us by filling out
a short survey, we'd sure love you forever! :)

Please email me and I'll point you to an online survey. The results
of the survey are anonymous. If you'd like information about the
state of the project, I'd also be happy to answer your questions.

Thanks,

You've got a really, really good idea.

Be very wary when one of the larger companies comes in wanting to license your work. NDA's/contracts just don't work for the little guy. If you are going to license it, understand that the first payment, heck you might even get more than one, will likely be the first step to business failure. The industry has people willing to copy under NDA and shut you down shortly thereafter with no remorse.

Good luck!

Sounds like you're speaking from real experience, DirtyWorks. I'll be sure to keep that in mind. And thanks for your comments!
