In addition to thousands of other miles, I've used one for a couple of 200ks and a 300k and a non-event 175 mile one-day ride. It worked well. The nice thing about the Volpe is the room for wider...

Thanks Nick. The compass and altimeter might be useful, you're right. I'll google around a bit on Garmins and Macs before taking the plunge.

Best wishes

Perphaps obviously water needs differ depending on the time of year. Here in VA my water needs are very different now than they were in July. In July, especially this July, I'd not leave home for a...

This was my point above. It gets hot here in Virginia and it's really rural in places, i.e. no stores, gas stations, to stop for water--and why stop anyway when I can keep riding. I got used to...

I use a Camelbak all the time on rides of more than 4 hours or so--I wore one on a 300k two weeks ago; no bother at all. It keeps me from worrying about when I can fill up and the weight does not...

I find that stopping after about an hour (or whenever the fancy strikes earlyish in a ride) and stretching my hamstrings does wonders for my lower back. It only takes a minute or two. Of course...

Thanks for the recommendation. Peter White thought that a Velocity Synergy would be a good choice given the kind of riding I am doing. It's a little cheaper and a good bit lighter than the A719.

The Sun CR-18 is a good idea. I will ask Peter White Cycles to work up a quote on several builds. The A719 is about twice as much.

I'm 5'10" and 190. I'd like to be able to do some light touring--or even some heavy touring. I use 700x32 Panaracer Paselas but one day might go wider. It'd be nice to have a wheel that I put on...
