If I recall correctly, Steve Tilford, set the North American Hour Record using these cranks to push something like a 168 gear inch. I don't remember if this was the exact gear, but it was insanely huge, due to the mechanical advantage of the cam in the cranks. I would need to break out the old magazines to confirm... I asked him about it once, and all he said that his knees hurt for a very long time afterward...
