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!
