My point was that our expectation for computer driving is not 99/100 it's 1 in a million or better. I suspect the cars could easily get past the 99/100 bar, but the 1 in a million is a significantly...

You're going to have to compromise a lot. The trail you've shown is generally best suited to wider knobby tires, which are inherently slower on the road. Also, light weight and hauling grociers is...

Actually that looks like a fairly standard TdF pro fit. Plenty of pro's are riding with 130+mm stems slammed, since they need crazy small frames for the shorter headtubes.

Look for sunscreens with Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide as the active ingredient. These work significantly better than the chemicals. The drawback is that they're expensive.

Assos and several brands sell "long leg" versions of their bibs. These are designed to fit taller riders. The straps will be snug, but that's not a bad thing.
