    The tandem record is pretty friggin fast
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    US 40k tandem tt record is 44'18" for a speed of 33.6mph

    That team could likely do a 10mile TT closer to 34 mph

    Put them on a triple, with an equally strong cyclist, and I'm betting you're getting close to 35mph

    Sounds fast, but the UCI Hour Records is still, what, 35.02?

    Well, put Boardman, Rominger, and Indurain on it, then you'd have something.

    Yeah. But still, as drag goes as speed ^ 2, the incremental deltas > 35 mph get less impressive.

    I agree that's very impressive, learning how to ride before learning how to talk. That's the way to do it.

    Hmmm....I didn't think a 3 mo. old could even hold up it's own head.

    True, but power goes up as the cube of speed (zero wind). 33 mph to 35 mph is a 19% increase in power.

    I know that. You know that. I meant the pure impressiveness of the number w/o analysis.
