    What's the fastest you've gone?

    Just for fun, according to your cycle computers what's the fastest you've gone on your mtb? I hit 31mph yesterday but I know that's weaksauce.

    I've done 50 on my road bike. On my mountain bike i tend to spin out because of the low gearing. 44-11

    like unassisted (flat terrain), or downhill. I think we'd get some crazy speeds downhill

    With the help of some slicks and a nice paved road I managed to hit 55.1mph going down a big hill.

    About 40 on a downhill course at Sun Peaks. Add the thrill that it's open range land and we had cows on the course in practice

    I wouldn't say the are worthless, but I don't have one on my mountain bike. The only time it really mattered was in a long point to point race.

    No cyclocomputer, no music from an Ipod, how do you ever tap into your inner strength?

    Hey mtnbiker66...I like the new sig pics, but is that poop on your center lug?



    I shipped my Super-V up to my parents house in WA a week before I flew there...UPS messed it up.

    My Dad threw his Huffy MTB in the back of the Bronco and drove up to the top of a mountain. I rode the bike back down with him behind me. I was doing 55-60mph according to his speedometer with him 5 feet behind me.

    It was so fun that it didn't even cross my mind that the crappy ol' Huffy wheels could have just fallen off, hehe.
