    Arson,

    I dunno if you mean the OP (me) or the previous poster. In any case, since I'm trying to be helpful and feeling generous after my second cup of coffee, I am 5' 5.5" and about 150 lbs.

    Get a Kilo TT. Change the pedals and saddle. Mount Michelin Krylions at the first puncture of the OEM tires. Live happily ever after. Oh yeah and install at least the front brake.

    1) Ride your own pace.

    2) Eat and drink well before you feel like giving up. Unless you have a medical, feelings of "I can't do this" and other emotions of despair are usually signs of bonking. ...
