François Gissy hit 207 mph on a bicycle powered by three rocket engines. From Wired Magazine:

The bike, designed by Gissy’s friend Arnold Neracher, is for the most part normal. Aside from those rockets, of course.

Gissy can use them to stabilize himself, but mostly leaves them alone. Yes, brakes are the type of thing you usually improve before subjecting yourself supercar velocities and 1.96 Gs of acceleration, but whatever.
