Video: 100 km/h in a Manual

Jake100 is known for thinking outside the box, finding new ways to do wheelies and enhancing the bike community. Jake's latest project brings us closer to his way of thinking as he showcases his creativity and pushes the limits in terrain we are not used to seeing him in. Ditching the tall buildings and crowded streets, he rode his bike on the rear wheel over the 100 kph mark. Watch Jake100 goes 100 kph.

Inspired by videos of alpine descents and longboarders speeding down the mountain roads, Jake decided to give it a try. In true Jake fashion, he wanted to do it the way he knew best, with a manual.

bigquotesI’ve been planning this project for years, due to my favorite thing on the bike is going fast. Speed is something, I would say, I am genuinely addicted to. As the years have gone on and I’ve got better and better on my bike I’ve ended up going faster and faster, to the point that I’ve traveled the world trying to find steeper hills and faster roads where I push myself on.Jake100

With the concept already in mind, Jake decided to give it a try in the US. He reached 75 kph but still felt that he could go faster. With the perfect location and the right crew, he knew he could accomplish the 100 kph goal.

After thorough research, using the best tools available: the knowledge of downhill skaters and Google Maps. Jake found the perfect road for the project, an almost straight downhill road between the Tyrolean mountains, near the city of Innsbruck, Austria.

For the crew, Jake relied on his friend Teo Andreoli as director and camera operator, as well as Karl Martin as a drone pilot. For the close-up images, Jake had Mirko and Thies, 2 professional downhill skateboarders based in Innsbruck, who would descend with him.

With a perfect weather window, the project was underway. Jake took a warm-up day to test his bike and himself. Everything was perfect and in place. The next day after 7 attempts, Jake brought his rear wheel to 101.3 kph.

“This year was the year that I said to myself: I am doing 100 Kph in a manual. From there we started working out the plan and we ended up going to Austria, after talking with Josh Neuman, Rest in Peace Josh, one of the best longboarders in the world. He told me that this road is the best to try to achieve this challenge. So, we drove all the way from London to Austria to make this dream real.

I felt great, to be honest, it was a surreal moment! Every time I do something crazy it takes me a minute to sink in what I’ve just done. We were worried because we had to be quick. I got down the hill, I celebrated quickly with everyone, and we needed to get out of there. I have achieved something that I always wanted to achieve, a dream of mine. Now, this makes me want to go even faster, let’s see what happens next year.“ – Jake100

The bike that helped Jake achieve his dreams was the C100 model from Collective Bikes a bike made for him. With a 19” aluminum frame with a reinforced rear end, this bike is specifically designed for wheelies but is capable of all the aspects of MTB.

 "km/ph"
You know what the "/" might stand for?

 I think this would technically be an acceleration value. distance per per hour.

 Even the kph gives me headache. I know, this is actually a thing that some retards use, but kilo what per hour? 1000 per hour what? Watts, amps, joules, pascals, ohms ... grams cocaine?

 For the Americans who don’t and won’t go metric, this is about 60mph. That’s faster than Sammy Haggard’s 55 that he can’t drive at.

 Splitting the variables. Km/ph, km/s, M/ph, m/ps etc. Right way to write it really. Just easier not to in general

 @CarbonShmarbon: yes it is. Acceleration isn't a constant as you are always going faster or slower. Like gravity, 9.8ms squared.

 @CSharp: it’s not about 60mph it’s over 60mph, technically it’s 62mph. Also Sammy Haggard??? Lmao! So many mistakes in so little characters!
  • 1 3
 @h20-50: Dude, Who cares if it’s 60mph or 62mph. I’m converting from 100kph and 1 mile is 1.6km and 0.6miles is 1km. Never heard of Can’t Dive 55? You know that’s not in kilometers, right?
  • 4 1
 @CSharp: 1kmh = 0.621mph , and it’s Sammy Hagar, not Haggard. Details matter, especially when you’re doing conversions.
  • 4 0
 @endorium: SI symbol: km/h. Anything else is not the right way, officially. Also Km/ph is totally wrong - capital K is Kelvin, not kilo! So Kelvin meters per per hours is just the thing that shows how bad your education is.

 @artistformlyknowasdan: It wasn't done in US so, it really don't count as a perceived freedom. You know you're still bound by laws in America. Plus, they're using a GPS in a short distance. So, 60-65mph - who gives a shit. It's still frickin fast and while doing a manual!

 I just looked up “chav” and this comment is entitled at best. I’m expecting the ruling elite to marginalize my observation by way of downvotes.

 @vonb: the word or concept of the 'chav' sadly remains in the British vernacular for those brainwashed by the new labour and conservative media establishment. People still using it to this day are out of date classists, who in this case can't wheelie their expensive bike.

My ex-girlfriend's 14yo son absolutely wants that shitty bike for Xmas 'cos he got hypnotized by this bloody Youtube influencer. I made him a wonderful custom Cannondale F4 2 years ago with neat details but this little c*nt doesn't want it anymore 'cos "he wanna change"... for a shitty 750€ bike with a crappy Suntour fork and low quality components.
I tried to explain him that his F4 is much better for doing stupid wheelies and show off on the street... but Mister "wants to change". F*cking marketing.

 You have to look at it from his perspective. Saying stuff like, “stupid wheelies” and “show off on the street” rightfully destroys your credibility with bike advice for people under the age of 50. What did you expect?

 I was very sceptical at first but after reading your comment I did a quick check with google maps. He covers 120 meters (from the end of the barrier to the middle of the last house on the left) in ~4 seconds so yes It's totally plausible.

 @ben314: Yeah, I was skeptical as well, but it IS a 16% grade. It's pretty tough to hit 100kmph even on a road bike in full lycra due to wind resistance, but things get easier when grades get this steep.

Their best bet would have been to use a radar gun in addition to the strava GPS plot as a backup data point.

 I did a manual on the road with my 29er from the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge into downtown Copper Harbor last year. My GPS computer read 46 mph or 74 km/h. It was very sketchy. Don't know if 62 mph or 100 km/h would be smart though.
