    If you had a mechanical you could use the akrapak to sail your bike home.

    The actual difference in area is so negligible that it is a non issue in wind. If 5 to 6 square inches are enough to affect your ride in any way, you have other problems. So I would definitely say I won't be "sailing" home.
