    There can be a couple of different sizes. You can pick up a set of metric allen wrenches pretty cheaply.

    There's the multi-tool set that have about 8 sizes and all fold out of a holder.

    If you don't want to spend the extra for a hitch, or have decreased visibility of a rack that hangs on by straps, then there is always the roof rack option. This can be a cheaper option if your...

    If you are going to start at 2 AM, make sure to have good lights as the section from Clinton to Boonville is more technical than most of the rest of the Katy. Of course good lights will make it...

    Cycling shorts are somewhat a personal thing. What works for me might not work for you. However here are a few tips.
    Don't go too cheap. Sometimes you get what you pay for if you are lucky.

    If caught you will certainly be escorted off the trail. You could be fined. You could even be arrested. It would certainly suck to be within 30 or so miles of the goal only to have it pulled out from...

    Something inside the saddle bag or saddle bag itself?

    Handlebars?

    Pedal or cleats?

    There isn't all that much to differentiate the three bikes. I'd ride all three and see which one I liked the most. I'd also see which LBS I liked the most. Price would be the third item on the list.

    Two more things!

    1. The KATY trail is 238 miles. They added about 13 miles recently from St. Charles to Machens. Add about another hour to your estimates.

    2. The mile markers read high as they...

    I've done a few double-centuries and also the KATY trail end-to-end 4 times. However I take about 5 days to do the KATY. I've considered doing it in one day, but my double centuries were on flat...

    I don't even really notice that it's there anymore. That said, there's be a few times where I've forgotten the chest strap and a few miles down the road I realize that's something's missing.

    As a 9-speed is a cassette with no moving parts, it should not be making any noise especially when coasting.

    Does the bike still have the plastic spoke protector between the gears and the spokes?...

    Lean forward putting weight on the arms. Just don't make the mistake of locking your elbows. Keep them bent so to absorb shocks from potholes and other road imperfections.

    As a former resident of the Greater Cincinnati area (Covington and Erlanger), I know that it can be very hilly around there. I'd be tempted to use a 12-28 to cover all bases. Of course there could be...

    Ditto on the hitch.

    If they plan on carrying 2 bikes, get a 3-bike rack. That way they have extra clearance between the bikes so they don't bang into each other plus can hold a 3rd bike if need be.

    I agree with the recommendation of taking the bike to your LBS for a checkup. The tires could be getting a little dry rotted and need changing.

    Good luck with the riding and your back issues.
