Re: How fast can you go on a TT?

... I used a Polar M400 watch. Not the most suitable device but it's accurate enough to do some testings. ... I have the same watch and I think its not accurate enough...I recently had a session with over '200km/h top speed'...:) However if you export the .gpx track from the watch to the gps action...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I guess knock off companies doesn't have access to wikipedia... probably the big firewall blocks it.

As far as I know China doesn't recognises intellectual property so moving your production there for maximum profits and bitching about knock offs at the same time seems ridiculous.
