Back in my younger days used to do fown hill skate boarding.The speed at which these blokes are riding now, is bloody unreal = 63.663kmh over 4klms or 39.5583542mph!
🤣🤣Back in my younger days used to do fown hill skate boarding.
We set up a bike as a down hill.bike
Bmx frame upside down, forks where handle bars normally are.
Then a long seat welded in.
You pretty much lay down on it, with feet on pegs on back wheel, only rear brakes, no pedals.
Chucked a speedo on it to clock our speeds on the boards.
We easily clocked 70 odd kmph and upwards few times.

Yes interesting indeed but if your weight is within the bounds of a pro rider, I can see how his analogies work but for the normal pleb, it's a lot of work to try n track everything. I have never subscribed to the lower is better nor higher is better on the road but it's still interesting. Multiple surfaces are always going to be a headache to sort out. Interesting that frame geometry wasn't mentioned in it and how that can affect ride quality.
I am surprised it went ahead actually
