Default 104-tooth chainring, 13 cog

Not that I necessarily have a thing for speed bikes but I enjoyed this vimeo today:

http://vimeo.com/70921986#

Built and ridden by Tom Donhou, http://www.donhoubicycles.com/, he topped 80mph drafting a car and over 100mph on rollers.

Saw this bike, and related stories, several times. However, the video provides the best experience of this endeavor. Really enjoyed this.

Thanks for sharing.

Glad you enjoyed it! I am totally amazed he did not crash when his driver lifted off the gas and his front tire seemed to touch the car's bumper. I wonder if he has a roller in there to allow his wheel to keep spinning?
