Thxs, Daniel Luke January 2, 2012 at 5:54 pm - Reply No idea! Sorry. There’s isn’t much that is normal on that bike Daniel January 2, 2012 at 7:23 pm - Reply I saw a small documentary on it and it said that he had pretty ordinary stuff on it making it so much more dangerous than if he did have. I think he had normal tyres, handlebar, brakes, etc.. I’ll try finding the clip but it’s in french..(i’m from Paris :p) Daniel January 2, 2012 at 7:38 pm - Reply http://www.ina.fr/sport/cyclisme/video/CPF04007546/cent-quatre-vingt-six-kilometres-a-l-heure-a-bicyclette.fr.html “25 year old wheels, some brakes for daily use and the normal tyres thats all” peter January 3, 2012 at 9:49 pm - Reply the forks are the other way round because he’s using a stayer bike (the ones that you usually see behind motorbike in velodromes). Having the forks facing that way the front wheel will sit closer to the bike (or the car in this case) in front of it being the most aerodynamic as possible. Anyway, have a look here to have a proper and better description of the discipline: http://davesbikeblog.blogspot.com/2007/05/stayers.html Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
