Hey as long as we're talking "safety" (another message thread), can you just IMAGINE cycling at 100 mph?!?! Check out these bikes! www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/04/16/17
"One Gear, One Goal: Bike Is 'Good To 100 MPH,' Builder Says:
What does it take to ride a bicycle at 100 miles per hour? That's the question being explored by Britain's Donhou Bicycles and frame builder Tom Donhou, who has mounted a mammoth chainring onto a custom bicycle. He says the steel machine has already hit 60 miles per hour on the open road.
Update At 3:30 p.m. ET: No Record At Stake. As our readers remind us, bicycles have previously reached 100 miles per hour. For instance, Jose Meiffret passed that mark in 1962, paced by a car on Germany's Autobahn. And in 1995, Dutch cyclist Fred Rompelberg reached 167 mph while using a top-fuel dragster to pace him at Bonneville Salt Flats."
