    whats up with that entire bike? ive seen it posted about 10 different places and noone explains anything, he just "went fast"
    the gears
    that tube on the front
    why hes using flat bars
    why he only has a front brake
    why doesnt his helmet match the bike
    ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.

    Can someone tell me the point to that drivetrain? It must be over my head because I don't get it.

    The gears are set up that way because a chainring with the same gearing would hit the ground.

    the tube on the front connects him to the tow vehical to get him to speed (I presume)

    bars don't manner a lot when you are drafting a wall. They also won't accedently clip the tow bar (that would blow)

    a rear brake isn't needed for a speed attempt ant would likely lock up quickly. He just needs one brake to feather his speed down. No panic stopping at highways speeds on sand.

    you got me on the helmet question.

    You multiply the gain. Suppose that each chainring were 60t and the cogs were 15t, then that setup would be the equivalent of 240 x 15, or 400+ gear inches. As thirdgenbird says, you can't get a chainring that big without hitting the ground (or crotch), and even if you could it would likely be as heavy as the rest of the bike.

    Another option is to increase wheel size.

    The motor-paced record is around 167mph, though. (112 is still pretty impressive)

    Well apparently this is a different record.

    This record WAS 83 MPH and he broke it by riding 112 MPH.

    It was in Wales correct? I'm guessing he broke the UK record.

    A bike shop owner has set a new world record after inventing a bicycle that can travel at more than 110mph.

    Then there is some other silly asterisk here as John Howard drafted a land speed car at 152mph.

    Edit: it looks like they are calling this an unpaced effort. I'm not sure how/why. He is clearly in the draft of a truck.

    Im sure there is some sort of difference between the records.
    Maybe its the type of pace vehicle. Maybe the type of bike.
    Who knows.......
