But don't get the cheap stuff Wally-world or Home Depot has on sale. Spend real money ($2-3?) and buy 3M tape. It'll outlast the bar tape. It even comes in colors!

You do have to be sure you have the proper pulley, the cable routing is correct and the pulley orientation is correct to make a Shiftmate work. It's not difficult or tricky but has to be done correctly. The directions with the Shiftmate are very clear but you have to follow them.
Finally, I assume everyone is going to say, true but they can only be used with Campy (read expensive) components and their gearing range is limited. Well, Jtek's Shiftmate will make Ergos compatible with otherwise all Shimano components and they shift like a dream.
I really liked the Trans America a lot and highly recommend it. If you want to branch off from it, I'd suggest detouring on a side trip to Glacier NP. If you have 11 weeks you should have time for that.
I am traveiling east to west next summer, leaving 1st week of June. I plan to go thru Colorado. By when should I be out of there? Or what is the latest part of the summer that I can comfortably enter Colorado without hitting cold weather?
I just got a light kit from brightercycling.com. It's LED frame lighting that you can configure in lots of different ways, for safety or show. Totally weatherproof and battery lasts a long time, check it out
