Ultimate is right. I have posted old superbikes from Lotus and Hotta before, but this picture just reminds me that I need to post more of those crazy bikes from the 90s that I love so much. In the mid 90s, Bruce Bursford was passionate about speed on a bicycle and breaking records. Using technology and materials from F1 racing and the aerospace industry, he built the “Ultimate Bike” a version of which is shown here. Sadly, Bruce was killed by a van while on a training ride in 2000.
I just found this great page about his Ultimate Bike via Stumbleupon, so I wanted to pass it along. Check out the gearing on this LOLA labeled bike (a maker of Indy cars). Wow! That makes a 53 x 11 look pretty wimpy. I guess that is why I hardly ever get up to 207 mph on the flats.
