    I'm sorry, I didn't mean any disrespect. I'm just pointing out that that it's easier to recall instances of people bragging about how solid their wheels are, than to recall reports of wheel problems....

    It depends on where you are. Canada Post bills me for duty about half the time, seemingly at random. China waives duty on personal imports below 130USD.

    People ski to the North Pole all the time pulling a 100kg sled. This bike ride is peanuts in comparison. People actually live in Tuk their entire lives. I'd just be visiting for a couple of weeks....

    2. Lube the chain regularly.
    3. Wash the bike in the spring.
