Pushing the limits of the sound barrier is ok for testing, but i find myself slowing down lately, 40 km/h is my prefered ideal speed. With dual-disk brakes i can come to a stop in seconds, and wind resistance eats up batteries above this speed anyways.
I pulled a maneuver this morning, i was following traffic flow thru the work parking lot and some idiot was going the WAY too fast across the parking not following the lanes.. on his cell phone.. adjusting his radio..
He was getting too close for comfort and was going to wedge me between his tin can and the sidewalk so i did a Hop-Up directly onto the sidewalk ! BARELY made it but damit.. i made it !
Hop-Up.. load the suspension, hug the bike with your legs and jump up pulling both wheels off the ground ! I can do this on a regular bike fairly easily but doing this on an 80 lbs bike is no easy task !
