Put smooth, high pressure tyres on and pump them up as hard as they will go.
To go any faster you need bigger wheels and a different riding position. Stunts and speed dont mix well.

Put a 5hp Briggs on it. That would do the trick.

You could also exercise your legs or something...

I am just wondering, why do people even post this stuff? I mean, it's funny, but I'm laughing at you not with you.

Yeah, it means the post about "how can I make my bike go faster" is humorous but stupid.

Yeah. I've been riding my bike to school everyday so far. I'm 16, have a car, and can drive legally. But I still ride my bike because 1. I love riding. 2. I like to show off my bike. 3. You can check out the honey's without worrying about hitting anyone with your car. I remember when I got my bike, about a month or two ago, I could only ride so long(outta shape). Now I can ride for hours. And it's kewl. Bike's rule. And if I get a job and some extra cash, I'm gonna get this bike from Wal-Mart. It's a miniature thing, they sell them in Dan's Comp. It's about 2' high at the most. Has little 5" wheels(I think so) and a rear brake. Would be awesome to ride to school one day, just to get the looks/laughs.

bigger chainwheel, smaller freewheel, smooth tires. or get a road bike :-\.

Experiment how you go faster...
do you change gears, and pedal slower to go faster....
or do you keep it at a lower gear and spin....
also...cramming up your pressure is good too...be in shape...and so on
i've been waiting to debute this bad boy..... good job you jerk!!!!
