I'm not saying that's wrong, just wondering why. Seems to me like the front wheel would be more important, since it is fully exposed to the wind.

The back wheel is already in the slipstream of your front wheel and your bike, so it's basically "drafting." I would think that would cause it to have less drag from air resistance.

Anyone know why people always put deeper in the back? I'm sure there is a reason.
