DISCLAIMER + SAFETY REMIDERS FOR BIKERS:

This thread is for sharing purposes only. It does *NOT* mean that PMTB condones wanton disregard for safety in order to have fleeting moments of adrenalin rush. Please remember that, as in driving a motor vehicle, overspeeding reduces reaction time and increases the level of personal injury and equipment damage in the event of a crash.

So please keep these in mind when you think you have that gnawing need for speed:

• Always ensure your (and other's) safety by staying within what you consider your personal limits. It's just the right thing to do, and it will increase your ability to react in time in dangerous situations.

• For better control, reduce your riding speed in bad weather, heavy traffic and accident prone areas.

• Slow down when riding at night, especially on unlit or poorly lit trails or roads.

• Follow other riders at a safe distance, at least two or three seconds behind the bike in front of you.

• Adapt your riding to the conditions on the trail or road .... not to the speed other bikers brag about.

Thank you and ride safe always.
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi guys,

Some of us guys here at Greenwoods have been bragging to each other about the fastest speed we have recorded during our rides. I just wanted to know what would be the top ten registered speed records in a mountain bike (on road, trail, grass, sand, or whatever ) by members of the group so we can dream of getting close to them.

Just for starters, my current fastest is 77.1 kph. I think Rexman also shares this speed with me while doing "wicked drop". Lets hear your story guys...

Ride E.C.

80kph......................... when i had my first spill, hehehe... a freewheel spin of the tires just before kablag!



actually i only did 53kph....
downhill from cardiac hill, 'too scared to let go fully the brakes maybe...

frankly i cannot imagine an mtb going 60kph and beyond.... i always think that the bike/biker should be at least on >45° road downhill with considerable distance and weight opcors....
well maybe from me being a newbie that is.

good thread, i'm also a speed freek (not on mtb though)... i'd like to see more stories here.... and you guys manage it.

I agree. Doing fast speeds while going down the wall is scary coz of the turns and sometimes lack of banking on the turns. My fastest going down the wall was 67+ kph. Was lucky my bike and I survived that trip coz I took a nasty summersault spill on one of the turns and found myself inside the water ditch at the side of the road. Luckily, the only thing damaged was my grip cover and my ego...

So during my last few trips going down the wall, I keep my speed below 65kph and slowdown on that particular curve.

78 kph going down the road from palace in the sky to canlubang.
I heard Ricky M of Sabak hit 90 kph on that same road downhill. Yikes.

If my memory serves me right, 66-68kph going down "The Wall" a year back.

Siguro mas mabilis ngayon kung bababa ako ng Wall kasi bumigat ako ng 8#(lbs).

just stirring up something here...

would weight equate to faster velocity?

If i can recall we had physics in highschool and it centered on Gallileo dropping two items from the tower of pisa. One was a feather and one was a ball. both have different weight and both dropped at the sametime, removing external forces like wind, air.

also did an experiment during Highschool of dropping different weight things in a controlled room and results ended up having the same duration of time to arrive when objects where dropped, thus same velocity (v= d/t ,same distance and same time = same velocity).

So i think the bigger our body will get, the more we drag air as we cover more area that is against ari/wind. - Does this mean the opposite (we go slower)? - we are talking about freefall here (or downhill movement)

Sorry for the OT... now back to the topic.

Five years ago was able to do 74 kph (based on my cateye speedo) on flat land while our mtb group was drafting a Swiss cyclist who was a TDF veteran in the Sual, Pangasinan highway. The guy worked as an engineer in the Sual Power Plant and smoked everyone in races he joined, be it a mtb or road race in Ilocos, Pangasinan, Zambales and God knows where. As long as there is a race expect him to be there.

Did about 65-67kph going down from boso-boso to Cogeo 4 yrs ago and and before I broke my forearm going down Daan Pari. Now, anything above 40kph weakens and shakes my knees already.

I reach 60 kph on my Sierra Madre ride (downhill part) last year, but I usually do 45 - 50 kph on katips going to libis.

79KpH on a friend's '08 Nomad down a nasty rock-strewn albeit wide open fire road heading towards Naujan lake here in the island of Mindoro.

Nasty? I suppose since i bottomed both ends- 5.8" on the 36RC2 and the travel indicating o-ring went off the shaft on the DHX Air...

Fast? Maybe... but not scary enough though. Honestly, could have gone faster if the bike was mine , or if the front were 2.35 Minions or Nevegals, not the flimsy @sssh$t 2.1 tubeless Rampage

On 2nd note,was thinking if my full on dh rig could go as fast or faster down the same course...

i reckon No. With too big a footprint (2.7 Minions) and too much travel (8'") i'd get wasted pulling it up to warp speed to still remain fully effective manhandling the bike down that tricky course.

bottomline___ wanna go fast? -- bling your skill, not your bike. And oh, a bigger, stronger braveheart wouldn't hurt either.

Ridehaaarrd, drinkhaaarrderrr!
