BTW, just to temper my negative comments about the ST, I will add that I know a guy who has done the NT, TA, and ST and thought the ST was best. He did say that he thought February was the time to do it though.

BTW...If you will be brining a stove you might consider shipping it in the bike box because of residue. My stove and empty fuel bottle fit easily inside my bike box.
Basically, too much weight at too low of a pressure. Higher pressure will blow the tire off the rim.That doesn't make sense to me, but maybe I am missing something. How much weight and how much pressure are you thinking of using with what sized tire? I don't see wanting or needing to run enough pressure to "blow the tire off the rim". At the lower pressure end of the scale I don't see going low enough for burping to be a problem.
