TBH going for 100kph with mechanical assistance isn't really pushing
things - that sort of speed is achievable on your own, given a suitable
hill. Having something slightly more aerodynamic than your gazelle will help
(which isn't exactly hard), and choosing the right day for the tailwind.
Tandems are very good for this - more weight for the frontal area, and dead
stable at speed. Or a suitably faired recumbent. And yes, I've done it. No
trucks, plywood, road closures, etc, just two of us, one bike, and the
corner with the water flowing over it coming up
reallyveryquicklytimetobrakeHARD.

FWIW the road near Cambridge mentioned before was well-enough surfaced.

Well said!

Of course, we now know that "Andrew McCoy, aka Andre Jute" is the

If you looked, did you find out who this Ralph Barone is? Is he one of
those anklenippers still smouldering because he was a camp follower to
the Magnequest Scum who got scorched a little when I burned them? I
don't have time to waste looking up every resentful little wannebe
flame warrior, so I'd be glad if you would share what you learned with
me.

Who's Pee Wee Herman? I'm sorry, you'll have to explain your joke, if
it is a joke, of course.

Carl Fogel now admits he called me a liar. His "evidence" is that a
calibrated recording speedometer fitted by law to longdistance trucks
in Europe is "implausible". Fogel further says irrationally that
anything I say in future will be a lie. Fogel has been caught out
before erroneously accusing innocent parties of lying; I don't know if
he went as far as to claim anything they said in future would also be
a lie. I gave him an opportunity to reexamine his assumptions and back
off: he tries to make that into an element of deceit. He puts words I
never spoke into my mouth in his attempts to prove his points. He
refuses to apologise.

Carl Fogel is a liar and has neither morality nor manners. That's a
pretty good definition of netscum.

Unlike the habit of Fogel and his fellow travellers of snipping my
messages out of context, I reprint Fogel's self-incriminating letter
in full below.

Hey, Frank, I told you several times your assumptions were wrong. If
you can't take a broad hint to shut up until the facts are in, don't
blame me when you look like a fool for shooting off your mouth. The
guys with their brains in gear who patiently asked the right questions
didn't make fools of themselves like you and Fogel did. It is not my
problem if you two are Darwinian accidents looking for a place to
happen. That premature ejaculator Fogel maliciously rushed in to call
me a liar without giving me a chance to answer questions, and is now
reduced to ludicrously irrational claims that anything i say in future
will be a lie. Both of you were deliberately deaf to explicit
warnings. You did it to yourselves.

Question is, are you here to shout at people, or for other reasons?

You could carry on digging yourself into a flame war, which will merely make
you look like an argumentative loser, or you could have stopped before you
started insulting people, which would have kept you the moral high ground.
Oops, too late :)

Do not hold your breath waiting for an apology or retraction from Mr.
Fogel - this is at least the third time he has posted false accusations
of lying or rec.bicycles.tech, and has never recanted on the first two.

Mr. Jute's post was a troll in that it did attempt to lead people down
the wrong path. However, Mr. Fogel has some history on this newsgroup of
coming to the wrong conclusions, but never admitting his error.

What makes you so sure Mr Jute isn't lying? I thought Mr Fogel made a
good case.

Agreed. We're dealing with a troll who openly brags about misleading
and deceiving people, while simultaneously posting a house-of-cards
tower of improbabilities.

It's not impossible he found a wonderfully smooth, yet steep and
isolated farm road in rural Ireland. It's not impossible he knows
someone with a truck. It's not impossible he acquired the proper
hardware to hold the rear doors open just so, and fixed plywood to the
lower tail of the truck, and worked out a towing scheme, and
successfully got towed up to high speed, and successfully released on
the steepest part of the short hill, and had the driver synchronize
their accelerating speeds exactly to keep him within the stable draft,
and briefly hit 100 kph, then quickly braked to a safe stop without
being crashed by intense buffeting.

And it's not impossible he did this risky, complicated trick (in
street clothes!) just in case he might someday get a chance to brag
about it on rec.bicycles.tech, but never bothered to publicize it
elsewhere.

On the other hand, it's also possible he's a lying troll.

Personally, I find Bill Baka to be much more believable, and much more
personable.

I do not know if Mr. Jute is lying or not. Neither does Mr. Fogel.
However, I know of at least two (2) cases on Usenet where Mr. Fogel has
made incorrect accusations of lying; and furthermore, that Mr. Fogel has
never offered a retraction in either case.

Dear Frank,

Sometimes when you flip over a rock, you find amazing things:
http://groups.google.com/group/rec.audio.pro/msg/192e933593bef951

First, Andrew McCoy/Andre Jute claims that he threw a log thirty paces
to hit a tree and detonate a cigar tube full of nitrogylcerin, stuffed
into a hole drilled into the tree's four-foot thick trunk.

Few people claim to be able to throw logs 90 feet. A rock would have
been more plausible, but it would have been less impressive.

Then Jute / McCoy claims that the explosion from within the tree blew
him thirty paces away--

And fifteen feet _up_ into a tree.

Few people claim to survive explosions 90 feet away that hurl them
another 90 feet horizontally and 15 feet vertically. (Even fewer
people make such claims for a mere cigar tube of nitroglycerin
surrounded by two feet of solid wood--for that kind of effect, most of
us would make up a 50-pound bomb dropped by the Air Force.)

But presumably it will turn out that all distances were measured with
a "certified calibrated government approved" pedometer.

And the strange upward trajectory of McCoy / Jute will be explained by
the fact that he merely forgot to mention that he rode a cannonball to
the moon--

Er, Baron von Munchausen rode a cannonball fifteen feet _up_ into the
tree.

The nicest touch in the story is the "black tree snake" that was
spectating in the tree and refused to bite our hero.

Anyone who doubts the snake will be informed that the late Steve Irwin
certified the serpent on a "calibrated government approved"
herpetometer.

My fellow travellers (communists who don't get along well with my crew
of right-wing McCarthy-ites) will be pleased to learn that I've added
"certified calibrated government-approved" South African assassins and
a squad of South American Nazis to our ranks.

Really.

No fooling.

At least, that's what Andre Jute / Andrew McCoy says:

"The apartheid security police, BOSS, twice sent assassins after
novelist Andrew McCoy on publication of 'Atrocity Week' and 'The
Insurrectionist'. South American Nazis hunted him for 'Cain's
Courage'."

Since tree snakes have failed my communist/right-wing/apartheid/nazi
coalition, I plan to terminate Jute / McCoy with mild prejudice next
spring by mailing one of these creatures to Ireland with instructions
to hunt him down:

The "certified calibrated government-approved" ruler next to my
cold-blooded assassin is 18 feet long, so Jute / McCoy will have no
chance at all.

Oops! Make that 18 inches. But it can tear a bullfrog to pieces with
those claws, so he'd better hope that it glides "away with only a
single disdainful look over its shoulder" when he finds it in his bath
tub.

Yikes! A nut who claims on his web site that the South African
government is sending assassins after them and that South American
Nazis are hunting him! Luckily, he blows himself up and hides in
trees.

I thought he was a blow-hard from the get-go, but I had no idea that
he was so flamboyant.

Cheers,

Carl Fogel

Again were talking about persons instead of content. As soon as Mr Jute
revealed his 'trick' I lost interest, and thought 'idiot' whether it was
true or not. Speed towed by a car or truck doesn't count for me.

Perhaps you could let me have references to Fogel's lies. Sometimes
when I run across a particularly virulent of example of mouthfoaming
netscum I write a little article to make a moral midget notorious
above his stature.
