I don't buy that for a second, and the "speed" indicator cannot be seen
clearly. It also looked like someone sped up the video a tad. Still, to
me it looked like it was far slower than the alleged 29mph; indeed more
like maybe 15mph. Also, if he really *was* hitting that speed, he'd be
peddaling 3x that fast...as it is it looks like a very liesurely pace.
Nice try though!:rolleyes:


PS: Yeah, I saw your "hee hee" so I know it's a goof! :)

15mph? No way, I say -atleast- 24mph.

Again, look at how *slow* he's pedalling! To achieve that AMAZING speed,
you'd be pedalling so fast it would be a blur! Unless he's using like
10mm cranks!:p

Btw, 29mph is considerably faster than a roadbike average! If anything,
it was 29*KM*, which is roughly 18mph. But that's still faster than he
was going. HAha, I've seen more convincing UFO footage.

Nah, I hit around 31mph the other day, I'd get footage but my camera is
broken. Its not really that tough.

I welded my pedals directly to the hub, crank arms are for whimps.

Cool, so you have the first "Coker BC!" Sort of! I'd like to see you try
to "idle" on that! ANd yeah, cranks are for wimps...and while you're at
it, why not lose the saddle, the frame and that pesky tire; then you'd
really have a challenge! You'd be all set for some fun slacklining! :)

Are you suggesting that I would have kept the rim too? No way terry,
spokes and a hub are all I need to get cruising.

it's because the thing that show your speed don't work that great with
unicycles/bikes. One time I was going down a hill at like 25 mph (I
have a computer on my bike) and the thing showed that I was going like
37, so it isn't accurate on things other than cars.

It said 9 for me. I'm sure I could hit 11 or 12 briefly, but I had to
dart out into traffic to get the take. In his case I am sure it was
picking up a vehicle behind him. It is difficult to get a reading for
your 36 unless you are out in the lane and there is no one else on the
road.

I don't buy it either. I have had my fair share of high speed fly-by's
on sportbikes(motorcycles) past those police boxes, and that has a
highly reflective headlamp lens. Most times they can't even pick up a
motorcycle, or a car without a front plate on it let alone a coker.
There's no way it's going to pick up a skinny ass unicyclist:D

maybe the speed camera thingy was measuring the speed of his forward
pedal stroke or the top of his wheel as it was coming towards the
camera, which would give a false, faster reading ?

maybe.
