In 1994, Graeme Obree successfully broke the world hour record on a homemade bicycle he’d put together with leftover scrap and some old bearings from a washing machine.
Despite race officials attempting to block him intermittently as he rode around the track and the governing body trying to legislate him back into obscurity, this was a man who had the foresight to focus on the problem associated with going as fast as possible on a bike and the instincts to know how best to find a solution, no matter how radical.
When it comes to getting faster, there’s always a raft of cool equipment to buy or upgrade to. Sadly, if you were hoping I was going to recommend buying wheel X or handlebar Y in this podcast, you’re going to be disappointed.
