Default Re: 40mph?????


maybe my suggestions are the wrong kind of advise you're looking for as they are not engine related but,

why dont you try using thinner non-knobby tires.

if your frame allows use thinner larger wheels

regrease and check that the axles spin freely

use a lighter frame.

try taking out the exhaust baffle all together (faster but also louder)

I use road bikes and both my bicycles can make 40+. I use cyclocomputer so not sure how accurate it is. I do keep up with cars though (I usually don't try it makes them mad). its dependent on different variables though, an altitude too high or too big a hill and I dont make those speeds.
