    Default Top Speeds Anyone!! HOW FAST?

    How fast have you guys gone? I rode next to my buddy's car today and we clocked 52mph on one of the biggest hills in baltimore. I am riding the big Luke Nozewalker and 85mm kryptos with Bones inside. I was just wondering if anyone has gone faster or broken 60mph. Let me know! Thanks...Treybonious

    It is uncertain if I rode within the 50mph range but all my solid numbers are below 50mph, checked by way of chaser vehicle. I'm impressed that you went that fast with a tanker board and with 85mm wheels! 85mm wheels under a Luke Nosewalker meant you had to raise your board up a considerable amount, right? Or unless you modified the deck? What trucks are on it?

    I've hit 40, that I know of for sure... but that was on a big deck, and I do not feel I have enough control to risk going much faster than that on a big flexy board. When I get my DH setup, I'll push it faster.....

    fast enough to take like a 2 inch deep gash outa my elbow. road rash on my ass. rip up my shirt and a 1 inch deep gash on my knee. emergency room estimated 'round 30, cuz i landed straigh on my arm. they estimated by the length that i skidded on my various body parts. which i estimated. around 20-25 feet. sick stuff. so fun though, up until that point.

    Digital overlay on my left eye kept scrolling "You're going to die", so I'm not sure what the actual speed was... :alien:

    hey jc are you familiar with that thing gravity sells...the embedded
    speed clock or something?

    seems to be something similar could be built perusing the aisles
    of a radioshack...or maybe some bike thingamajig would work?

    i have no idea how fast i've ever gone at any point...crashing
    or not... i can only guess and that ain't fact...

    I believe it is basically the same as a Vetta bike 'puter... s'muther posts around here...
    It's do-able with a bike job; just takes some "Celtic-American Engineering".

    of course you'll do, why wouldn't you?

    I guess without some gadget on the board itself, which i don't
    really like the idea of much...a chase car is as accurate as you can get...

    I agree. those add on spedo's will just clutter up my mobile "Home" entertainment system! Now Momona has me thinking of a Hibachi
    and a two seater cooler, and I had to put the tiki torches on outriggers just to keep them from putting alight my stripped canvas circus tent longboard roof!

    ( Do you get the feeling that I might build this thing?) (I do )

    I really dont want any electronics on my board, I like 'em plain and simple.
    Something that becomes one with my feet and feels as myself.

    or Mice Elf as SLy said...

    Shiet, with LBF boards you can have a leather sofa, wide screen plasma tv, and expresso machine onboard and have a jolly ol time!

    Hey, I'm thinking of getting one! But I'm gonna just put black curb feelers on it and a cool little chrome motorcycle mirror!

    Street style!
