Default Re: my second bike

Hi There Nick. Welcome to the forum. The easiest way I have found to get 150 miles per gallon is to find a reaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllly high mountain, anywhere in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with an altitude of about Ten thousand feet will do. Take the bike directly over the edge. Do not take the road down (and do not pass go and collect $200) but dive directly over the edge. This is the only way I know of to guarantee a hundred and fifty miles per gallon. It also helps if you are 90 pounds and made in Taiwan. Usually, a large man with a spare intertube around his waste, peddling to start the bike from stops and coasting down hill once in awhile can get between a 100 to 125 miles to a gallon. Keep in mind that most tanks out there are about a half gallon so 50 to 60 miles is the normal for fill ups. But considering that hunk of metal we call a SUV and about a hundred dollars to fill the tank, I can live with 50 or so miles to a tank when it only cost about a buck and half to "fill her up". Happy motoring and don't forget to duck.....
The Chinese make them, but it takes an American to build them better....
