Below are representative results for Cx. They are nearly independent of airspeed (10, 20, 30 mph were used).

The above are taken from the middle of a crayon line drawn through very numerous data points. Typical scatter is +/- 0.002 to 0.005. For comparison, Cx = 0.8 for the whole bike/rider combo. (based on a typical crouched-racer 0.3 m^2 drag area quoted in Whitt and Wilson).
