To those of you who have provided usefull information, I thank you. I have used some of that information and advice. I am sure this trip is going better and has been safer. Thanks to you. I pay for internet usage by the minute and can not afford towaste my time. To those of you who have chose to waste my time having your own irrellevent conversation, It is easy to see that your main concern is your ranking based on how many posts you have on this site. I have it ironic that while you discuss how rude some motorists are you do not see how rude you are being. You should be more understanding and forgiving of those motorists, perhaps they are no more ignorant of their lack of consideration than you are of your own. Happy Riding. PEACE-OUTI assume your future question will not be answered since we may inadvertently waste your time with irrelevant digressions. Apparently you aren't familiar with the the term "thread drift".
pretty strict!Pretty common. Most state vehicle codes say pretty much the same thing.
An aero wheelset is designed for one thing: to go fast. I would think it would be unreliable for a Clydesdale class rider just to go around the block. Skip the aero or radial laced wheel sets and get a traditional wheel set.Aerospoke wheels are not the low spoke count deep rim wheels typically used for time trials and triathalons that you are picturing. They are carbon composit wheels molded all in one piece with 5 wide carbon "spokes". Look here for the details: http://www.aerospoke.com/1/258/index.asp
I have done a 300 mile ride 10 times and enjoy doing century rides whenever I can. I've done more than 100 miles in a day several times. I plan a training program that will be 400-500 miles/week in preparation.OK, I realize mine wasn't an exact answer to your original question but you didn't exactly answer mine either.
Sounds like a very aggressive schedule. It's a little hard to evaluate without more info about your riding experience, but 85-100/day is a lot more than *most* people do on tour. 60-65/day is more common.+1 Planning 85-100 miles/day is a lot easier sitting at home than actually doing it. Have you ever ridden back-to-back centuries? How about 30 in a row? How about doing them on a loaded bike, over Western mountains or Eastern hills?
I have found the neoprene ones to be pretty warm. The material is like that of a wetsuit.Neoprene is indeed the most suitable material for "booties" or socks. I have both SideTrack neoprene booties and "Supersocks" neoprene socks and together they let me tolerate an hour or so in 20° weather. There are several similar brands.
I've wouldn't ride on anything but a Terry Gel Men's Touring Liberator saddle. When I'm touring I scarcely think about my butt. Now if I could just fine a way to stop the pain in my feet after 80 miles........It's the best saddle for you but I expect there are others who find it torture. Saddles are about the most subjective part of any bike.
