probably not daunted by short hike-a-bikes on small snowfields,Which is what I thought when I met this.

Actually you can use your carbon roadie with a BOB trailer.Be careful withe that one. When I did the Transam we met up with a guy who had an Orbea with a BOB trailer and he kept breaking spokes in his rear wheel. I forget any details about his wheels but make sure yours are at least 32 spokes on the back and built for touring. Make the wheelbuilder promise to sacrifice his firstborn if you break a spoke.
But the big problem as I experience it is the face.Too true. I got caught in a thunderstorm in Pennsylvania this summer while going downhill at about 20 mph. It was scary, I couldn't see a thing and was barely able to pull into a gas station at the bottom of the hill. Even peering over my specs didn't help much. Anybody made wipers for glasses yet?
Are clipless pedals unnecessary? Well, in the sense you can ride a bike without them, yes. So is a saddle. But I'd rather have both on my bike.+1. People had similar complaints about multi speed gearing. If you've not used them before try clipped pedals on a stationary bike to get the hang of clipping in/out before you ride on road with them. The sensation of being stationary at, say, a traffic light and being unable to unclip is not to be missed
