did he wave his flag at you? he made frantic "slow down" signs to me. mind you my bike was doing 8 inch bunny hops from side to side, and rather than a manic grin my face waswhite with terror

You've got to go sometime - why not make it fun?

I just hate that dark streak of blood and flesh that cyclists leave on the road...

OK...so I guess I was the only one who didn't know what tubs are! Now I do. Not that I have a road bike anyway!

FB..you may have gravity on your side, but isn't wind resistance more of a problem for you than some? ;-)

In best Little Britain accent : "Yeah - I know."

I'd get the tt bike anyway gumps. Like we need reasons for bikes.

you aren't the only one who didn't know what tubs were TD, its just that most got their teachin towards April/may this year as Candy went thru what he was using for the rest of the seasons races.

As for descending the HH at 55mph + I am sure FB could get to his speed and be very safe on that piece of road as it was smooth and open, the only blip was a road change over a kerb rise, nothing too bad.

Personally I thought trying to feed while descending at 55mph was fast enough with one hand ;-) haha

At the risk of being a completely boring pain in the ar*e, could we stick to bike related Q's on this thread please? :-)

Plus you are scaring me with all this speed stuff and tyres that blow up....

the bike numpties on here need a home

TD - I was in an aerotuck position as well - down on my tribars with arse over the back of the saddle..............yeeeehaaaaaaaaaaa..........it's FB, the "Flying Brick"...........

I ignored the marshall Candy - he might have hollered something uncomplimentary in German as I smled at him though..... ;O))

FFM - this is an essential part of your journey towards being a bike non-numpty.

Mockery and p** taking are major units on the syllabus.

I always thought weight had no effect on how quick you went down a hill.
More likely FB's rugby scrum trained legs pushing a mighty gear????

Nearly 70mph thou. Do you have trouble finding bike shorts with balls that big?
26/07/2005 at 11:49
are you aware of a thing caled "gravity"??
26/07/2005 at 11:50
I realise that Cougie and have no objection to it, but am also aware that many threads descend into (very funny) tit-for-tat comments......


really don't want to be a pain.

sorry

but you know what I mean..
26/07/2005 at 11:50
you're combatting air resistance and rolling resistance. all other things being equal, heavier = faster.
