Ultimate Bike

Shot with Olympus E620
How fast can you cycle? How fast do you think anyone can cycle? This is the Ultimate Cycle, built by Bruce Bursford using F1 racing technology, seen here at the cycle show. He used it to create the cycling speed record of 207 mph (yes, 334kph) on rollers in 1999. If you aren't impressed by that ("it wasn't on a road") how about the road cycling speed record of 127 mph set in 1962? The story doesn't have a happy ending, Bruce was run over and killed in 2000.
