Re: clocked at 38mph today
I did that once, except with a 41t sprocket. It was down a 1-2 degree incline with a 10mph tail wind, but I got it up to almost 40! It had to have been revving over 10k. My engine is really well balanced, but even still, I do not want to try it again. It's asking for a blown engine. On level ground with no wind, WOT I can hit maybe 32, but I always cruise at around 26 and almost never bring it above 29 because it's nearing redline much past that. If you have the torque, by all means gear it lower.
