How close can I get to a pair of Continental Triathlons, in a tour-worthy tire. These are 700x23Cs and the tour is cross country. I suppose I'm looking more for durability and puncture resistance than traction.

Routes / Is there a straighter line from Minneapolis to Manitowoc?

General Discussion / Stupid Hotel Question

Early stages of planning first really long ride, OR to NY, and was wondering how you folks planned overnight accommodations. I may camp it from time to time but mostly it'll be in some kind of hotel/motel/B&B as I see it.

How many days in advance do you plan this stuff?

If money were no object and if you hated spending stupid money, how would you build-up a LHT frame for...long touring?

I guess what I'm really reacting to is the stock groupset, forgetting the saddle and pedals. But I'm just an old roadie and mountain biker at heart looking to expand into rides spanning weeks or months.
