    Very good point on toe-strike. This is really important if you plan on using your big tire bike off-road with tight curves at low speeds. Personally I would hate to go through a custom build to find...

    Your specific questions:
    * 460mm chainstays (à la Surly LHT) should be long enough and will allow plenty of tire clearance. Do question whether you might have to buy a couple of chains with every...

    Does anyone actually using these bars with flat tops (essentially aerobars) have complaints about them being too flexy? Or are they really that more comfortable than anything else you've tried that...

    ... And there is your answer about the main source of your pains and discomfort. You are mainly supporting the weight of your upper body with your hands, arms and shoulder. The weak core is also...

    You got it! This is mainly what you need to focus on, IMHO. If you make adjustments, they should be minor (within 1 cm) and one at a time. As others have mentioned, you have most likely been left...

    My take on your video:

    * Arms a little too stretched which are causing your neck and shoulder pain. A shorter stem would be ideal, but they can be pricey. So, push your saddle forward 1 cm at a...

    Too bad that your eyes don't like the highly visible neon lime green. It's a great light jacket. Unfortunately, you have narrowed down your choices from Shower Pass to only one of their jackets. Or...

    For a light jacket, you might want to check out their Shower Pass Double Century RTX. It is good for temperatures down to the high 30’s with a warm (e.g., merino) base layer underneath. It is very...

    You seem to be overthinking your drivetrain choice. As long as it works for you, go for it. Any White Industry hub will look beautiful and will perform flawlessly.

    Having said the above, I think...

    Training as a weekend warrior is definitely not the best approach. Many guides and books have been written on this. It's better than nothing but it's far from optimal. Need to mix it up with...

    Surly Cross-Check? Or the LHT if you need even a longer wheelbase, but you'll need to think about buying 26" wheels for your frame size.

    Definitely go with what you like most and find the most fun to ride. A double-century can be done on any bike. If you already have a racing bike, you can always tweak your fitting to make it less...

    Will you be racing with this LHT?

    Bike speed is not solely determined by wheel size. In fact, it is almost insignificant. Quality and features of the tires are MUCH bigger factors, let alone the...

    All your questions really come down to personal preference (i.e., no right or wrong answer), especially if your plans are to tour only in North America and Europe.

    For "terminal", do you mean from a self-service kiosk or from a curbside check-in where one normally tips someone?

    I doubt you'll incur a retroactive charge for your completed outbound flight. It...

    700c X 35mm should be good, but you'll feel more confident having a bike with 26" (ISO 559mm) wheels with at least 2" tires for off-road terrain. 26" wheels still rule in most parts of Latin America...

    Yeah, that's a great idea if you can make the trip. Visit auntie and take a tour of the R+E (Rodriguez) shop in Seattle. I've never been there, but hear it's fun to see.
