No offense, but one year of physics means you've barely scratched the surface.


Good story (fable?), but physics indicates that situation isn't realistic.

Nope. Aerodynamic drag may be less in a pack, but it isn't zero. It is still a bigger factor than the minuscule effect of accelerating a little extra wheel weight.
