    Dynos are great. Continental Sport Contacts and Schwalbe Racers are nice fast tires.

    Twodown, if you're willing to consider that panniers do not have to be mounted over the rear wheel it might open up more choices in your searching if some of the bikes you're looking at have shorter...

    I don't get it. Once you put panniers on you're no longer quick. I have a 26" wheel 56cm LHT and it is a quick handling truck whereas the 700c version is a slow handling bus. With loaded panniers...

    Nothing is slowing you down but it's not clear why you're posting on the touring forum and not road racing forum. Being very fit "in general" and "new in the saddle" is a clear indication that...

    27" x 1 1/4" wasn't an accident. For Clyde size riders and loads there are so many nice tires these days in 35mm-47mm. When I had my shop 1 1/4" or 32mm was pretty much it for heavier loads and...

    The problem with that chart is that once you load the bike with weight the tire gets a bigger hit from unsprung weight on the wheel. A 150lb rider with 30lbs on the rear wheel will put the tire...

    Yes, 32mm is good. You must have lost a lot of weight in the last couple months! With your initial weight of 250lbs 35mm could be worth considering. 28mm is doable but there would be no benefit,...

    A light tube won't make a perceptible difference once you put on a touring load. The Supreme is a nice rolling tire. I never had a flat with one riding through glass. it's a fine front tire with a...

    Good one.
    Somewhere I had a book on race training translated from German. What it set up was nested cycles of exertion and rest with variation in training allowing you to recover from aerobic...

    $.02 your body is not adequately prepared. One time 240miles in four days has very little correlation to 4000miles in 8 wks.

    Go with the bike you have and go for light/mid weight load. If you have a tall frame 58cm+ consider frame bag. If the fork has mid fork eyelets go for front panniers and rear rack with top load. If...

    Yep, good enough works just fine. Imagine someone saying "I'm doing a road trip, should I get a Mercedes 550 or is a Toyota Camry good enough?" I've had three custom touring bikes from 25 and...
