Graeme Obree Going for Hour Record (again)


Obree is trying to break the hour record which consists of riding flat out for an hour, measuring distance. This bike which Obree built himself has a gearing of 138 inches (67×13). You would have to take that beast down to Hall street to even get it up to full speed. I tried to ride a 52/14 for a few days and it felt like I was fighting a constant monster headwind.
Good Luck man!
