    I thought this thread was something to do with Mr Hippo's cycling prowess.

    I think the fastest wheelie in the world (on a push bike) was done on a mountain bike.

    Where was it done? It looks like the speed run at Les Arcs.

    About a quarter of a mile on the M1, left by a Jaguar.

    Er...I thought it was more like 10km by Spirit of America on Bonneville Salt Flats in the 60s.

    Depends if we're talking absolute records, or on public roads.

    Either way, a change of undergarments was probably in order. :biggrin::ohmy:xx(
