Day 1, 40 miles, with mostly cross winds my day averaged 12.5. Day 2, 50 miles, with mostly headwinds was 11.8.
I'm never a fast rider, 14.5 is about as fast as I go on a 20 mile ride.

If it interests you, I know adapters exist to allow using normal pedals in a Dyna Drive crank, but I have no idea how rare, sought after, or expensive they are. I'd look at ebay.
