I work with a guy who tends to stretch the truth quite a bit. He's a wannabe bicyclist, but unwilling to buy a good bike. He claims that when he was about 13 he and a group of his buddies were riding their bicycles down a hill in Minnesota (I think) and reached a top speed of 65 miles an hour. This speed got him pulled over by a local cop who gave them each a ticket or a warning. This is actually one of his least ridiculous stories (not all about bikes...the best one is about being an agent for the NSA). Is it any way possible for a kid to ride 65 miles an hour on a 10 speed bike?
My top speed so far is 37.6 miles an hour (in top gear / 100 inches) on a hybrid bike. I know I could do much faster than that if I had a road bike.
Please list your top speed. BTW, this is not a competition.
