You know all those people who reckon you shouldn't cycle while using
in-ear type headphones?

Well these guys aren't. THey prefer umm... more volume.

The new kind of doof-doof is pedal powered!

I'd like to see how fast a bike can go with a 3000W engine.

"The bikers said they have heard no complaints about the noise they
make from residents or people they pass."

Eh? What you saying? I can't hear you over the music.

I'm guessing about 90-100kph on the flat. 200w gets you about 25kph so four
times that speed requires 16 times that power (drag goes up as a square of
speed) so 100kph should be about 3200w.

Yeah, but factor in the weight of the speakers!

I thought the speakers would be replaced by the 4hp electric motor.
