    I downloaded CycloMeter on WP8 and it seems to work pretty well. I generally don't use it during the ride though, instead I set it to log and leave it in a pocket or my seat bag. I use my 16.12 STS...

    Will consider it, but as the trip is soon I probably won't bother now. It is quite useable as is and the islands are not huge so I will not be covering a ton of miles.

    It drops below the bottom of the top tube, just not by a whole lot. For the bars I may try flipping them upside down though and see if that feels better.

    I bought an entry level Jamis Ventura Sport, and it also weighs in at 21-22 lbs. May be a little lighter now since I replaced the tires with Pro 4s and swapped the stem.
