    The advantage of cycling. You could probably outrun a T. Rex if needed.

    Apparently it had a top running speed of 18mph. Many a cyclist can out do that on short distances at least.

    Mind you... stick a T. Rex on a nice carbon time trial machine and we'd be b*gg*red... well, eaten anyhow.

    If you had a T.rex on a T.rek behind you, you might suddenly find yourself being jet propelled !

    surely the weight of the T.rex on the T.rek would ensure the bike was a w.rek by the end of the ride

    Every schoolboy knows you stand still. T.Rex's are very short sighted, don't make a move and they won't see you.

    Plus they can't ride bikes 'cause they don't have thumbs to ring the bell.

    is that why new bikes have to have a bell-its to save us from T.rex

    First of all we have to establish whether the T-Rex measured his speed in MPH or KPH..it's important!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, would a T.rex use campag or shimano? (or indeed another system altogether).
