    Disc Brakes

    145mm tandem rear spacing so you can get a dishless cassette'd rear wheel in the back. It'll also help with tire clearance.

    You could consider the nominal wheel size to be 27.5....

    I'm pretty sure a 32mm tire will work with 27.5 rim width. Not 100%, but at least in the road community wider rims (almost as wide as the tire) have been popular for a while now.

    How is the TK 540...

    An inch can still be repaired, but it'll never get perfect. I'd get a new strong rim if I were you, but that's also because I like new durable stuff that certainly lasts.

    If you get a Shimano hub...

    Have you counted your macros? Are you getting enough protein? Long distance cyclists need probably even more protein than heavy lifters since the volume and time involved is much. You should be...

    Although to be honest, a 1mm dish offset is entirely acceptable. I actually try to manage a 1mm offset towards the non drive side for my rear wheels so I get a better bracing angle and more even...

    A dishing too is handy, kinda. You use it to check the dish on the wheel (checking that the hub is in the center of the wheel) I don't use one, I just flip the wheel in the stand while I search for...

    first of all, don't curb drop with a load if you can at all manage it.

    secondly, if you're mechanically inclined, then build your own. You'll get a strong wheel from the start since factory built...

    Ok, if you absolutely have to have brooks, sugino or nitto for bling purposes then why not. You can spend as much as you want for bling, but it's not going to bring the functionality up at all. At...

    Since when is stronger tubing less durable? The thinner tube thicknesses are possible, because the steel is more durable and that translates also to impact resistance to a large extent.

    We use paper maps to draw the route we've travelled. Then we keep the maps. But topo maps? no.

    Well, none of that is actually true. If built right, carbon has more impact resistance than steel so getting it knocked on stuff really isn't a problem, especially if we're talking about a purpose...

    Umm, sure, whatever you say.

    I'm in the camp of durability with reasonable weight so most of the stuff on my bikes is mid level quality, ie. Deore and SLX. There may be some XT in the mix as well....

    A decent base layer. it is the base you build upon. Merino wool is probably the best material out there for base layers, but make sure there's some nylon wowen in to give the fabric more durability....

    35 psi isn't going to cause tire/rim slip. 15psi could be possible but you'd need a fatbike tire for that to work.

    And I could never get warm enough with a regulat helmet as I can't fit enough stuff underneath to cut the wind.

    Some helmets have earphone ear protectors as a sold accessory.

    I just got a new ski helmet and finally I can use a helmet during winter. A bike helmet with stuff under was never an option
