Can you beat this (377RPM cadence)
 
Well I had a cadence of 377RPM today, so does my computer say. It makes me think about the 159.9km/h I had two weeks ago, I think it was for real. Do you people pedal this fast or its just me.

I was having a polite discussion with BlackBerry the other day and he said his cadence was in the order of 379RPM. Unfortunately BB's comments, inuendo and rhetoric can rarely be relied upon accept as sheer dross at the Tar & Feathers and other such watering holes.

I do believe you're on yer own Whoodie.

Hang on a sec, can you please confirm you weren't riding down a mineshaft please.

I think someone needs to dial up the resistance on his trainer

I know you are jealous cause I can beat all ya on my lowest gearing combination.

Please don't burst my bubble. I had a perfect excuse for including 159km/h as my highest speed ever, of course on a relatively flat route. May this is a delayed display, for that days speed/performance it's a computer you know.

This is on the road bro. Well, I passed a few cars.

Hey, it's measured with a computer and the results are posted on the Internet. It has got to be true, right? Right??

:D

Very well, not down a mine shaft, perhaps you went over the safety rails on Mount Kilimanjaro?? Well done for surviving the trip down. I was watching the news and I did hear someone mention how impressed they were, that you overtook the school bus 7 times. :D :D :D

Bruco 03-16-05 04:31 AM

Sorry to disappoint you, but I regularly spin four digits, like 1156 rpm or so. On the other hand, my usual cadence these days is 0, regardless of gear or speed. I guess my Sigma computer is screaming for some mechanical attention. :D

Well mine is not attribute to a mechanical or electrical error. I tend to believe it is all about the physique.

Vetta I want my money back.

No, not necessarily, the road code is 110km/h for private cars on Dual Carriage. Why is hard to believe that I have improved overnight.

You should be asking me, the key to my success. :D

My good man,

On occasion after occasion, I have offered you the olive branch and what do you do? You insist on advising me to position said branch in a location where the sun does not shine. I cannot, I will not take such advice sitting down. :eek:

I am only too glad that we are separated by a vast, heaving ocean. Otherwise, I might be forced to take an action which we would both later come to regret. That is to say, I stand ready to challenge you to a bicycle race down a mineshaft. And then we'd see about RPMs, sheer dross, and what is and what is not mere innuendo and rhetoric.

Moistfly 03-16-05 06:57 PM

That's nothing ... the other day I hit over 180mph on my bike ... of course I recorded this as I walked it past the magnetic door locks in my office building ... hmmmm :o

HaagenDas 03-16-05 07:01 PM

Perhaps we could combine our energies?! What about a quick soujourn over to Kenya to see what this Whoodie character really is up to. Perhaps those chaps over there measure cadence in degrees of arc!?

I wonder which of my rifles I should take along.

Blackberry 03-16-05 07:04 PM

No rifles.

HaagenDas 03-16-05 07:11 PM

Blast, no gun boys eh? Alright then, I'll doss up in my pith helmet. I trust they have those bar carriages still. I hope there's still time to check out Whoodie after the safaris.

Blackberry 03-16-05 07:18 PM

No guns. I fear you might mistake me for a Panther in the dark of night. However, pith helmets and bar carriages sound most congenial. Of course, we count on Whoodie to show us the ropes.

HaagenDas 03-16-05 07:24 PM

Agreed, no guns, too much risk of an "accident". Perhaps after Whoodie has shown us around the bars, local doss houses and game parks, he might be so good to run us up to a coffee plantation. After all, it may be possible to convert our relationship into something more positive over a cup of the locally grown.

Toodle Pip.

HaagenDas 03-16-05 07:26 PM

I suppose we ought to throw a set of false teeth into our kit for Whoodie too. After all, he can't have many left after a harrowing ride down the side of the big K.

Blackberry 03-16-05 08:13 PM

Bars, doss houses, coffee plantations, false teeth, and thou. I can imagine no better adventure, my pith-helmeted pal.

PWRDbyTRD 03-16-05 08:37 PM

wow...of course thread

HaagenDas 03-16-05 08:37 PM

It's starting to pan out quite nicely. I wonder if Whoodie knows anyone with a speed boat and a few sheilas?

:beer: Hope so. Can't count on either of us.

HaagenDas 03-16-05 10:11 PM

Whoodie, you don't have an issue picking up to blokes being tipped out of a jet at the airport do you?
