Adapted from A Certain Bicyclist

n the Twenty-First Century, we shall be able... 
 
    • To cut steel with lasers, but we shall continue to give the brightness of a lightbulb as
      • "100 candle-power."
    • To shoot a rocket beyond Pluto, but we shall continue to give the output of an engine as 
      • "100 horsepower."
    • To spin a bicycle frame from carbon filaments, but we shall continue to give its speed as 
      • "100 inches."
What is your explanation for the "100 inches"?
