Uhm, which physics class did you take?



A bike has to overcome inertia. Inertia is measured in terms of mass. All objects resist changes in their state of motion; the more mass they have, the more they resist change. The more mass a bike has, the more power is required to generate the force to overcome the force of wind resistence because of its inertia. Yes, aerodynamics have a greater effect, but still a heavier bike will have a slower top speed.



Unless of course it is going down hill.

It is confusing. Both countries call themselves "China". I'm used to referring to the ROC as Taiwan to reduce the confusion.

No, I'm not a big SP fan. The episode where Barbara Streisand turns into Godzilla is a classic though. And "Team America" was the best comedy and maybe best movie of the year. I don't watch all that much TV, except for MXC. Never miss MXC.

Default Well China still thinks the Taiwan province is China (a Taiwanese primer)

The PRC doesn't recognize the ROC (Taiwan). But thats not what your were talking about was it. Chiang Kai-shek evacuated the Republic of China government to Taiwan. I dated a girl whose grandfather was one of Chiang's croonies...

Default Yes that's correct 172s..

Yep that is correct when I was in the Air Force it we started out on 172 at small field their San Antonio... FSPOT (Fish Pot) Flight Screenin Officier Trainee. We did in 11 hours what people do in 40 hours in the civy world. If you have your PPL you skip that and go to OTS. After you go to OTS you go to Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) where they used to use two jets a side by side configuration (instructor, studend) jet nicknamed the tweety bird (I think cessna made it) and then later the T38 Talon...



172s are real light and nice. My first hours were in a 182...
