Default Re: How Fast are You going? - I wana know

66 straight head with a bilet intake and standard 66 speed cab
27" alloy wheels on a Micargi cruiser frame- fairly upright with BMX alloy 8 inch rise bars

I have an alloy 34 sprocket on now

According to my analog speedo- which I think may read a little slow- I get up to between 25 and 30 with no trouble-
A good cruise at 30 feels still comfortable and I'm still not wide open- I move along with most of the traffic then.

I've pushed it up to 35 briefly, with the motor starting to really whine which I don't like, and it starts feeling just a bit fast anyway- beyond that, I guess I've never really opened it up all the way- I suppose in neutral wind, and if I tucked a little- it might approach 40- 37 or 38 certainly
