Now I do have a friend that dropped like four teeth off the rear sprocket. He could get his up to 70... In a tuck. On flat ground. Eventually.
I have a lower count rear sprocket and mine has hit a GPS confirmed 71mph. Let's just say it was a long time coming.

So yeah, the TW is not your bike if you need to do sustained (or any) freeway runs.
