    Thanks everyone for the help. The concept has been demystified. Apparently, it wasn't nearly as difficult as I'd led myself to believe. At least I can make an informed decision now when buying...

    I guess I'm convinced. I'm going to just buy the Toshi. I didn't expect them to cost so much.

    Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and get the Toshi straps, it just seems weird to spend more on the straps than the pedals.

    Thanks for all the advice! I think I will look into some other buying options as the price tag on the Surly is pretty steep. It's good to know the bikes are so capable. They look like fun, but if...

    That's what I was thinking. 16 hours is by no means a land speed record, but if I get it done, then that's what counts. I doubt I'll get it done in daylight, but that's ok too. If I do ok on this 64...
