stops signs? what kinda ride are you riding, is that mph or kmph?
Ride - Walmart bike with 1.75" semi-knobbies.
Kph of course
very nice vid. good thing it was a mtn bike, the final minute of the vid looks very painful if it was a road..heh
btw what kind of camera was it?
nice video, but sorry to be a whiner, and it's 10 times better than I could do. The aerobars gotta go. they block the view too much, specially when you are using them.
I was really impressed, then I realized the 'puter was displaying kph!
Still, nice ride.
Higher ground for the apocalypse!
Kinda hard to lug a 20kg+ (44lbs+) heap of steel past 35Kph (25mph) with just normal sandals
at first I bout crapped my pants...I was like this kid is pulling 40mph on flat pavement?!?! Then I was like...I bet it's kmphOriginally Posted by way124
What kind of handle bars do you have?
2004 Martin Novato: 10613 miles, Ride in Peace (DOD: 12/05/06)
Max Speed: 40 mph
heh, thanks for sharing. I just got a new bike and stuck at work.
POV bike riding video is perfect for me right now.
Welcome to Canada. No one uses mph.
Man that is an awesome video!

Your replies have inspired me to do another video. Sorry, aerobar still there. But I tried to keep my hands off it as much as possible.
Thank you all again
Edit: I'm not technically versed but my handlebar is 26mm around the center (which extends about 10cm) and about 22mm the rest. I mail ordered the aerobar, I wasn't even sure if it will fit
you've inspired me, makes me want to make a video of my daily commute, show u guys how not to ride with cars around you
you should mix some music in with the sound from the video when doing the titles and stuff...
Do you notice any actual top speed gain in the aero bars?Originally Posted by way124
Aerobars make you
a) more aero
b) makes your upper body more still
c) which in turn let's you hammer it more
Thank god for aerobars, it's always breezy/windy around here.
nice girly toss, way124
anyways, u should be careful leaving the camera out like that, some dude might come by and just snatch it
Couple of reasons... my helmet wasn't strapped on, didn't want that to fly into the river. Didn't want to push the bike into the river, and definitely don't want to stumble as a result and fly myself into the river
Nice to see the Detroit skyline from the other side of the rive. Don't mean to steal your thread, but I love those aerobars, does anyone know if they can be fitted on any bike? I'd love to have a set on my Trek Hybrid but don't know anyhting about anything when it comes to stuff like that, especially since I have grip shifters
My aerobar mesurements attached (units in millimetres). It comes with spacers for 22mm hanldebar I believe.
