Still one of the fastest ways through central London.
One-way streets, red lights, riding on the pavement, bus lanes... What they gonna do? Take your number plate down?
This is the fastest bike I have ever owned or ridden. Extremely rigid and light TT track frame. As track frames are de-raked compared with normal bike frames it's agile through traffic. And less leverage is needed so narrow bars give the best control. Carbon-fibre front wheel is aerodynamic and has a low moment of inertia. It also runs a tubular tyre which can hold about 200psi so there's almost no tyre rolling resistance (the main form of drag on bicycles). 48x15 gearing. Pedal cages. I run a rear brake only but combined with a fixed gear gives great braking feedback and sense of traction.
It's cold in London.
