Sounds like sound advice to me.

It looks like if you were to go into a tucked aggressive position you might flip over the top of the bike. I don't think a longer stem will fix it, rather a larger...

By no means was I ever planning of doing a 200 with anything bigger than a 52x13. However, I do plan on over-gear training on larger than 52x13 to develop more power to make easier gears easier.

How do you know when to replace tubular tires?

The answers i've received from the locals have been less than optimal - either wait until your tire flats or it comes off the wheel.
