Default Re: Hurricane Mathew Build

Welcome W4F

Giant Stiletto looks great. Tons of space. Built in jackshaft.

I am only getting 30 MPH using your gearing with this:

Rawge's Mini Chopper jackshaft calc:

(6000 RPM with 24" wheel)

With 45 MPH gearing you are going have pedal more to have a decent clutch life.

Wind resistance goes up with cubed root of speed.
But with such a long bike you could lay down to cheat the wind.

Best of luck.
