    This falls in the same bucket as those guys who jump from high places and parachute to the ground. Unclear why it’s any more impressive than sending a mannequin to do the same job. What do you think this guy’s tires are made out of?

    I just watched the video, and he did not seem to be pedaling.
    I wonder, could he have gone faster with pedals? To my understanding, most people use pedals instead of rockets to propel their bikes.

    John Howard famously pedalled a bicycle up to 152 MPH through use of double gearing and drafting.

    François Gissy needed a rocket to beat it. Give me John Howard’s approach any day.
