Ironman…or Rocketman?

Given that Ironman Canada has a few rather lengthy and steep hills, I’ve decided that some of my previously highlighted bikes won’t quite do the job.  Instead… I plan to invest in a bike that does a much better job really burning through my nutrition and knocking it out of the park.

Behold…the rocket bike:

Oh…but it gets better.  A lot better – actual a video of this mother in action.  Check it out:

 

Yes…75MPH.  Hmm…6-8MPH up Richter Pass…or 75MPH?  Tough choice.  Starting bids at only $650 – much cheaper than a pair of Zipps!

  2. I’m thinking a pair of Zipps might be cheaper in the long run given fuel costs, not to mention the probability that this contraption might get you a Darwin award before it got you a finisher’s medal. But who am I to rain on your parade? Go right on and be RocketRainmaker!!! :D

  3. Ha ha…that’s hilarious. Still, I’m in agreement with Calyx – I think you’d be more probable to earn a Darwin than a podium.

    Thanks for the laugh!

  4. DC is going to a loan-a-bike program soon. Spose they’ll stock any of those bikes at the downtown bike stands for when you really gotta get somewhere fast, like RR?

  8. I was sort of wondering what that strange sound was when I started the video …sounded a bit on the human side..and then I realized it was the bike!
