Guy Martin's Bike
Was all to do with getting the gearing right, having one large ring the size needed to get to the speed would have been impossible to spin
The right gearing is the right gearing whether the gear ratio is achieved through two cogs or four. The system didn’t allow two different ratios, it was just to allow the thing to fit on the bike. Getting enough speed to be able to spin the cranks was achieved through the towing.Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
butcher got it right, one mahoosive ring is difficult to fit on the bike and also a PITA to amend gear size
also could be issues with shipping the chain (at 90+miles an hour!!!) and with such a wide chain angle there would be less teeth at the back sprocket meshing…Posted 4 years ago
It looked like a flat barred road or hybrid but it was a fleeting glance as he was doing something in his van, possibly putting his leathers on (awful boxer shorts)Posted 4 years ago
The lack of Orange was probably compensated by the hope shiny bits 😛
but the big steel sticker was what made it stand outbrakesMember
Slight diversion: what was the black bike in the back of his van this week during the hydroplaning motorbike attempt?
wasn’t it the bike Rourke first built in the program to make sure they’d got the measurements right? I remember that having a big 853/953 sticker on the downtube.Posted 4 years ago
