25.5
 
Finaly i found a nice hill to hit 25.5mph on, i know its slow, but on a $50 wal-mart bike its fastish.

I like pushing CHEAPPPPPP bikes to the limit, i am on my second set of pedals :D :p ;) :o :)

I almost hit 30mph but didn't want to run thru an intersection, for safety reason. I am only 16.

How fast you think i can get this Roadmaster up to without blowin' a bareing?

I got one to 33 once...it started to shake and whine real bad so I didn't push it any more.

My question is this: Why do you guys put cyclecomputers on Walmart bikes?

highspeedcycle 08-22-05 01:09 AM

Mine feels really solid for some reason. Also, since its a CHEAPPPP bike, i felt the need to make it look like a CHEAPPPP bike, i COVERED it in black gaffers tape. We got 2, i tuned my derailer, it shifts smoothly(as CHEAPPPP bikes go) and for some reason it feels faster then stock when i put the tape on... Could the tape really make an aero difference? No worrys at 25.5mph expect for now i'm worrying about my bearings locking at that speed.

TheKillerPenguin 08-22-05 10:41 PM

lol, I have a friend that used to stand on his seat while gripping the handlebars...on a grocery store bike. He'd do it down some serious hills, going a bit over 30mph. Crazy bastd

Miniklobb 08-22-05 10:47 PM

Nah, just a beginner. Got a good deal on a nice bike in my size and I figured the money was better spent on that than going toward a mid-life crisis car since Im still in my 20s. I think its MUCH cheaper than going out and buying something I'd just have to gas up and insure and get no exercise in. The flashy vehicle only makes you look good while you're in it... cycling will *hopefully* make me look and feel better all the time.

highspeedcycle 08-23-05 04:03 PM
