He's supposed to try this Monday to break his own record. That's one crazy dude after surviving the crash linked in the article.

That is just nuts going 130 mph on a bike. Good luck to him though!

Dude is nuts but good for him to get back on the saddle and do it again. Sucks he feel short 5 km/h but then again he already owned the record.

wow!!!! so what does that thing have rockets or something??? impressive overall. im surprised the muscles in his legs dont tear after not just the crash but moving at that speed(unless he lets gravity do all work either it would be wicked crazy and hard to maintain balance at the speed on a non motorized vehicle).

I remember the bike from an old Guinness Book or Records that made the record in the 1960s or 70s. That bike had the largest crank gear i have ever seen, almost the size of the wheels.

Wow here it is

When I read the topic and starting reading replies...I thought he was going 120mph on a regular bike and was peddling that quickly.

 

I'm slightly disappointed.
