    What is the fastest RPM (top RPM, not average) you've achieved doing Goldsprints?

    Everyone whip your epeens out. It's Friday. It's time to brag.

    What is your top RPM when doing Goldsprints? Best average RPM?

    Psst... the track forum is that way.

    I can tell you what color my cranks are when i Goldsprint....(they're gold.)

    I can also tell you that my welds look super cheap while I goldsprint.





    PS... goldsprints are what you do to get away from the leprechauns, right?

    Hah, I'll avoid being un-PC at this time.

    I've always thought of Goldsprints as much a social thing as a track thing. A lot of people I know who have zero interest in the track and have been zero times still have done Goldsprints. Coz they are fun? I dunno.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, include your ratio!

    When I came home from the bars last night, I really had to piss and kinda ran to the bathroom. Is that a Goldsprint?

    I don't know what my rpm's were, but my feet were moving pretty fast.

    I don't know about rollers, but my computer says I've done 165 rpm on a downhill. 200 rpm is seriously fast.

    Never ridden rollers before, but I'd estimate my top cadence achieved on flat ground as ~170 with 48x16. I was pretty much spun out at that speed so I doubt I could get it much higher even on rollers without the wind resistance holding me back.
