This was my fastest speed ever, by a long shot! Could be a record a 60 year old on a non-geared 36er! Just had to try for 20 mph, and maxed at almost 21! Had found the perfect long stretch of flat, smooth concrete it was like a runway! Was lucky to meet a guy willing to let me attach my gopro to his car so I could get a tracking shot. Thanks Harry!
Awesome as always!
Amazing. What is the cadence at that speed? What size cranks?
Well, now I want to try some shorter cranks
I’m that fast.
The same as you.
that means that Terry is 1.6x faster than me
Thanks for the comments guys!
So today I decided to see how fast I could ride my Nightfox…BACKWARDS! Very unsettling and SCARY doing this on a 36er! Thanks to James Lee for his help!
(Holy Moly! I forgot it’s Friday the 13th! Glad I didn’t think of that when I did this! )
Love your 2 vid
Think I heard “I buried Paul” in that last backward clip :).
Awesome Terry! Just amazing to see your skills. Great video!
I’m impressed Terry
We have those Radar trailors with the big LED lights sign on the beach here, to discourage speeders. They really work. I am discouraged. 9 MPH on my 36, with a tail wind. I wish I could say I was riding it backwards, but I don’t know. Maybe if I tried riding sideways off the sea wall I could hit 21.
Do we still run that Red Lobster rally event like they did a few years ago ? That was fun, and I didn’t even go. It sounds like you need a guni Terry.
Good job Terry. I just realized that I’ve recently hit 32km/h on my G26, which is the same speed, with just a bit bigger gearinch size. It was a fast spin, so I can imagine your feeling.
The only time I ever exceeded that speed was when I fell off a log doing MUni that was 8 feet off the ground. It didn’t end well but I exceeded 20mph.
