    When I was riding for Mongoose, we did some shows up at Mammoth for a NORBA race. After the shows we raced our bmx bikes down the mountain (on the paved road)... We had the suburban follow us, and on the last straight we were clocked doing 60mph.

    I bet that thing will bring the speed!

    My first goal is to get it over 40mph and see if it disinegrates, if not it's game on there are people riding full fairng gravity bikes hiting 100+ mph.

    I'm thinking that at the speeds that thing can reach, 65mm of (at least) front suspension would be a good thing...even if it's w/ the firmest springs and compression setting.

    That is really good. Better tie down them dumbells, or they'll hit yours.

    Yeah I need 2 people to record action vs just a handlebar shot. I treid to get my wheel in the video but my cable routing interfered with the handlebar mount.
