    Your gear/speed

    I recently just purchased the Specialized Globe Roll 1, and switched out the 46/18 gears from Raleigh rush hour, and handlebars with bullhorns.
    I've gone up to 47km/h downhill and 43km/h on flat.

    I'm curious what speed everyone can get with their gears on flat.

    You must spin like 150 rpm+ that's really impressive.

    Meh. I can still do 200, and I'm in my late 60s.

    I had one in maui a few years ago. It was surprisingly delicious! Maybe I was just really hungry.

    46X18 at 43 kph = 130 rpm, give or take a stroke or two. 150 rpm would be about 48 kph.

    Just according to this.
