Default The fastest stock bike in the world. Get yours now!!!

Here is the fastest stock bike in the known universe

http://www.wisil.recumbents.com/wisil/misc/nocom.htm

Time for all you intelligent riders to order one just in time for the
holiday season.

There is nothing better than flying down the road on a splitter bike and
passing everything in sight including those old school slowracer
antiques and upwrong ass hatchets with slither's of leather up their ass
..

Holiday Cheers,
Johnny

Umm, recumbents suck. End of story. And you can't race them anyway.

And I don't know about that "bladder in female" process. I think the
bike is going to have to stop to pee pretty often.

You may also have noticed that the chain of this freak is so close to
the front wheel that the wheel can't steer. It's about as close as
the chain is to the rear wheel on a conventional bicycle.

An artist's (mis)conception no less.

I find this difficult to tell from the available photographs. This image
gives the best view of the front wheel and chain:

It's hard to tell on this side view, but it looks like the gap between
chain and wheel is a couple of inches, and that coupled with the smaller
diameter wheel makes it look to me like this would only be an issue for low
speed turns. It appears that it was designed for high speeds, rather than
versatility.

I think you'll find it is a real bike, Jobst, pictured in the metal.
Or rather in the carbon. It's used almost exclusively for track
racing, though.

I've seen a bike with even more restricted steering, although to be
fair the rider did Crash Horribly and inflict major road rash on his
arse - but that was mainly because he clipped someone else's wheel at
speed. The rider in question being one Mr Burrows.

The whole idea is wacko with a tiller for a steerer and a chainwheel
off to one side, far enough to clear the wheel for small angles. This
is an aesthetic effort, real fast HPV's are fully faired and set world
records through a timed gate. This is neither a competition bicycle
for UCI approved events nor is it a fast HPV. It certainly is not a
tourer but might interest someone who needs a conversation piece,
where it might do for a short time... that is, until the other kids on
the block have all seen it.

Up to a point, Lord Copper. I have seen (even raced in) HPV events
where there are several bikes with this kind of chain layout. Even
road-usable sporting recumbents tend to have the chain dropped off the
front idler for racing. Not all HPV racing is faired, there are
classes for unfaired, faired, "sports" (which have a minimum height
restriction).

This is neither a competition bicycle
for UCI approved events nor is it a fast HPV.


Not fast? With a moderately fit "engine" It would leave me behind
without too much difficulty, and probably you as well :-)

I expect to see bikes like this on tracks at BHPC meets. I think Mr
Larrington will be along any moment now...

I have some pictures from the Reading BHPC meet, and there is one
which seems relevant. Unfortunately it was taken with a very cheap
digital camera, so it's a poor picture, but here it is anyway:

The bike at the top is the Ratracer B, which has a fore-and-aft front
fork, giving seriously limited steering travel. Look at the RatRacer
below, you'll see that the chain overlaps the front wheel there, too.
