    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.

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