60 mph no problem! (video)
 
Well with the help of some 90FPS video.
My top speed was around 30mph. You even get to pray to the gods when your done.
63 seconds long, outside Miami, AZ

Is there a point?

Only 30 mph going down hill!!!
Did I miss something??

Lots of traffic on that road.

Yeah, but I've seen cars passing before. Lotsa times.

I hope you wear a helmet.

I think the intent was to show what 60mph looks like on a bicycle, unfortunately this does not add road vibration (at 60MPH) nor any of the other things which would occur (passing some motorists, bike falling apart, having a blowout, etc). Unfortunately many of us have attained much greater speeds than 60MPH in our cars, so there's little thrill there. Check out the 80MPH HPV pedal bike.

I'm not sure what his intent was. The title says 60 mph but his post said that he maxed at 30....
And it doesn't look like he was going over 30..

The intent was to share video of a down hill run. I guess posting bland boring titles is what you want.
@ 90 fps this will speed up whatever speed by 3 times.
Wide angle lens will make things look slower.

Yea the RV dude almost took me out. Nothing new on this road.
