Default re: 60 MPH...achieveable? Who cares?!? Let blueprint an engine!

Yes the worksman bikes are heavy duty but the real question is what speed does
this bicycle stays stable at. Lets take a look at the Maui Downhiller bike. This worksman bike
goes downhill for 38 miles in Maui without a motor and speeds up to 30 knots or 34.6 miles
per hour with risk involved. I am sure that 60 plus could be obtianed but no one over there
is that foolish. Add a motor to get going at 60mph and there is no safety margin. Save it for
the salt flats in Bonnieville is where it belongs.
