Did two rides yesterday. One was more my normal ride take it easy with a average speed of 15km/hr But this one although not as far as some days had some longer up hills that LOOKED like hills. All three hills had me droping to 1st gear but i never stoped and conquered each one .
But the real fun was on the second ride. Finely got my kid sister to come out for a ride with me (shes a athena) and is kinda annoyed that i now weigh less than her and wants to do something about it.
She has the bike i bought for my old man too use a Trek Navigator 2.0 and i told her i will replace that bike with what ever she wants IF she can pull of loosing the first 10lbs to show commitment.
But on that second ride i took a shorter route of only 5kms. I told her to take it easy and as time goes on it will only get easier. But at one stretch to give myself a challnge i told her i was gona open the taps to see my top speed and that i will wait for her so dont try to keep up.
Gave it everything i had in top gear and hit a top speed of 42.5km/hr witch was awesome till i found that equates to only 26.5mph LOL. Guess this bike aint all that fast lol but MAN does it feel like it.
I ride motorcycles for fun. i have had some of my bikes up PAST 200km/hr and that did not feel nearly as fast as pushing that bycical past the 40km/hr mark. THAT WAS FUN and better yet COMPLETELY legal lol
I thinking i gona be buying a new bike as well when i take my kid sister into get her a bike LOL.
Quick question For my sister is a womans specific bke gona help her comfort wise or is she ok on the guys bike for now (shes 5'10 275lbs).
And Second What kinda FLAT ground speeds can one expect to hit riding a road bike?
