    I'd expect to see the lower range also, but on the other hand I could reasonably imagine several watts from the spokes beating the air like fan blades. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if that part...

    I think his link referenced 30 mph which is coasting for me (downhill or not at all at that speed).
