But in the second trial he broke the record with a drive up to 112.94 mph (181 kph). Of course this speed record was broke the previous speed record that has been noted by Dutch cyclists, Sebastian Bowier, who drove at a speed of 133.78 kph (83,13 mph).

With the Rouker statement, it seems the bike with two chains will not be mass produced due to the cost of production. *** [EKA | FROM PREVIOUS SOURCES | DAILY MAIL]
