    I've only been riding for a few days now and I've managed 39 mph going downhill.

    that must be great living in the pyrenees, I live in a almost completely flat part of ohio, but I've hit 51 going a really steep hill.

    56mph. I actually caught a car... I was to scared to look down. I kept thinking about how much skin I'd lose if something broke...

    I've got a hill I train on a lot that's usually good for 40mph in a nice tuck. Has a 90 degree corner at the bottom that leads right onto the highway... :eek:

    I think it's fun to see how much faster you can go tucked, or sitting straight up on the same hill. It's pretty fascinating. Also, when to finally just give up and quit peddling.

    Someone said at nationals we hit 72 mph going down this one hill. It was more like 65 mph though.

    I've gone 80.5km/h with my old steel frame (that's 50.01mp/h). I prefer speeding on flat road or uphill though...

    There is no bloody way you got going 105 mph!!! By then I would think that the ball bearings would have started smoking and your wheels would have just fallen off. I don't believe it, honeslty.
