Default Re: MPG thread!

I've averaged about 150MPG since 2010. From a stop, I pedal, and I pedal during the ride if I can. I almost never "floor it" and I don't spend much time over 30MPH.

My bike has a fuel tank that holds ~1 gallon. My setup:

Engine: Huasheng 49CC with SBP air filter and custom flexpipe exhaust, drilled main jet 2 steps larger
Transmission: 5:1 4G T-belt and SBP 4-stroke shift kit to a 3-speed Sturmey Archer hub
Bicycle: Nirve Knuckle with fenders, handlebar bag, Topeak rack, dual Wald 582 baskets



I rode several chinagirls from 2006 to 2010. I averaged about 70-80MPG with them; fully equipped bicycles and cruising 25-30.

"Alehauler II"
"Alehauler I"

I'm 6'3" and 230lbs. Not very aerodynamic! My bikes weigh 65-75lbs with full tanks and empty baskets/bags.
