Nobby : The Musical?
Doom Bar Doom Bar where are you
I like Doom Bar with a meaty Stew
Riding around up Vigo Hill attempting to be quick
Instead mistaking the profile and ending up sick
The dog drags me into the pub again at least thats my excusePosted 4 years ago
But really its pleasant being a person of limited use
Until the time comes to lend a hand at putting up a tent

He seems like a good bloke, but for the previous records I couldn’t help but think that if there’d been even some attempt to find a decent club cyclist (at least for the HPA and bike speed efforts) then they’d likely have fared better. That said, I guess it’s really just about television, not some outright attempt for the best possible record, and he does make good TV.Posted 4 years agopirahnaMember
I used to race recumbents and know both Mike Burrows and Miles Kingsbury. To cut a long story short, recumbents are faster. An unfaired one will give you a small gain over a normal bike, say 3 to 4 mph. Smoothing out the airflow behind gives a decent gain, you’re now 10 mph faster. Bolt on a nose cone for another 5 mph. The real slick streamliners are fast as f@ck. At the World Champs in 96 on a 30k time trial I was doing a steady 28 mph on my unfaired bike, the top riders on full streamliners were cruising over 60.Posted 4 years ago
