SO very true madison. I wait for the day when we can do our speed runs together.
It's be cool if that was "officially" timed, like for guinness. Do you have actual video footage of your speed record? How long did you maintain that speed? That's 27.8 mph. At that speed, if I was even able to hit 17-18 mph on my coker, you would still pass me like I was standing still! Hard to fathom. That's also roughly a 2 minute mile!

I don't think he has video proof, but the way he described it, it wasn't on flat grond but on a slight downhill. Mine was reached on a slight downhill as well and the only proof I have is my cyclometer, the next time I attempt the record I will try to get video.

Got my new 36"er after mine vanished from my apartment....

anyway, pics of that new 36" and my "semi retired but still ridden" 24". The bar wraps are a mess on the 346" because I just finished a huge ride that tore them up and if you're wondering what the mount to the left of the cycling computer is on the handles, its for the cell phone/mp3 player

This is my muni, called "Cthulhu" after the monstrous creature from HP Lovecraft's horror stories. The name somewhat reflects my feelings regarding the big, speedy wheel when I first bought it


Spec:

Nimbus 29er frame and wheel / hub
KH Fusion Freeride saddle
UDC T7 handlebar (recently bar taped)
BMX Calliper brake (plus an old brake lever I stole from my MTB).
Lighting by Cateye.
127mm Qu-Ax freestyle alloy cranks, with Specialites TA self extracting cotterless crank bolts (I can change these for another set of cranks in a few minutes using only a 6mm allen key)
Kenda Klaw 29 XT rear tyre
Wellgo platform pedals with pedal protectors
Bedford flame stickers
Cheap cycle computer from Halfords
Bell, again from halfords
Insulated drinks bottle

This uni is set up for medium-long distance riding both on and off road, and for commuting use. For rides combining long ranges and some technical sections, I'm planning on switching crank lengths mid ride, using the self-extracting bolts. I'm going to add an under-saddle wedge bag for carrying some Soreen, Kendal mint cake, tools, alternative cranks and possibly a pump.

I also own a no-brand 20" freestyle and a rather spiffy 36". I'll post pictures of these when I get the chance, but the 36 is currently in bits so it might be a while
