I've been commuting long enough to build up the endurance, experience and stuff for my 10 miles round trip commutes that have allowed me to start thinking of being able to ride farther for fun. I'd like to take off for an overnight trip that involves riding for longer distances, hopefully leading up to a 120 mile round trip. Most of my riding is suburban stop and go, and it's rare that I'm not changing speed or direction while I'm commuting. I'd like to be do some longer trips where I'd actually be going the same speed and direction for longer, and wonder how hard it would be to build up the strength to allow me to ride longer. I plan on using the commuterized Hardrock I've been riding for the last 5 years, and it's got the B17, slicks, lights, rack and abundance of bags that would once again make the rider the part that needs to be upgraded.
