    Henry Kingman did a sub-50 hour PBP, mostly on a 5 mile commute plus the qualifiers. That said, he was a phenomenon. You may not have a perfect ride but it sounds like you'll be fine.

    The Ultremos ride really nicely for such a skinny tyre, except on bad chipseal. My lady runs them on her Moulton, so not quite the same situation as on a non-suspended bike though.

    Campag 11 levers are a perfect match for Shimano 9 rear mechs and cassettes, no adaptions necessary. Another option to throw into the mix.

    If you pick a small-wheeled bike with fast-rolling tyres and an aerodynamic position, you'll be near enough as fast as on a road bike. After that, it is up to your legs and the group's speed as to...
