i built one for fun as part of a build off on another forum, then a second just because i had a second idea i wanted to try (fat schwinn rear tire. yes i know it shouldn't be fast). one i never rode, the other i got up to a whopping... er...22mph
the idea is kind of fun though. i still have both for if i come across a good hill someday.
I like the first one, paint it all flat black and itll be bad arse!
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
Here's a clip of my buddy haulin ass on my bike.
52.1 mph, one lane road, no helmet... not smart.
There's no video of me going faster than him, but I did set the high score on the same hill.
I haven't found the time or resources to build a bike. But I'm a wannabe. I did spend one weekend chasing some gravity bikers as they played on Route 1/88 on the Oklahoma/Arkansas border. They had a chase truck to carry them uphill. Some of the hills are miles long and they could go far faster than the car traffic. They camped at the Queen Wilhelmina State Park.
Here is "Fast Eddie" from Kansas City taking off.
Here's a link to his latest bike. "Fast Eddie" Villanueva
Here's a better link for gravity bikes.
Obsession isn't always a bad thing... But having company makes you look less crazy.
