    Speeding - Post your record.

    Today I rode my mtb bike at 28.9mph. I tried really hard to push it through 29mph but just couldn't. I do feel the "burn" in the legs. This is the highest speed I've ever attained on flat road.. Consider my bike is 30lbs and I am only 5'7 145lb I believe it's quite a good speed...

    The speed limit on the road is 25, don't know if they would give me a speeding ticket if I got caught.

    What's the fastest you've riden on a mtb on flat roads?

    I've hit 27 even. I was racing my friend on the bike path. It's fun to pass road bikers, and to just plain fly by anyone. I love the sound when i speed up. My back tire like "whurrs." God, it's just insane.

    37km/h = 22.99mph
    27mph = 43.452288 km/h
    28.9mph = 46.51 km/h

    Notice the ones that are 50+ are all in kph. Fastest downhill was probably about 65kph and flat about 40 i think, not sure since i dont have a speedo on my bike anymore.

    Flat = 36 mph.
    Down a hill Ive gotten 52 mph (on a Giant Yukon with semi slicks, LOLOLOL), couldve pushed it but I was quite scared. Ive heard that if you maintain speeds like that the bearing in your freewheel can melt and seize up causing a lockup. That would SUCK!!!!

    EDIT: This is all on concrete. On the trail my top speed comes in around 3 mph.

    I plan on it, just so I know how long I have to walk back up the dang trail after my bike breaks down, and my chaintool breaks trying to fix the dang chain.

    Then I'll post my fastest speed.. probably 15 mph or something lame hehe.
    Learning the ropes of mechanics on my Specialized Hard Rock Sport 2004 that I ride a bit too hard.... and upgrading parts that give me trouble on an excellent frame.

    Ive hit 37mph on a slight hill on this really old bike I have.....and during a DH race, I think it was 35, maybe 38. Dropped pretty fast because I crashed going that fast, and was clocked through the finish gate
