    Thanks for the info.

    I am not looking to train, as in, for racing or really fast times.

  5. Riding brevets as training instead of training possible?

    Do Randonneurs initially train up to a certain distance, and then just ride brevets frequently enough for the rest of the year so that the brevets are training in themselves and just float throughout...

    Thanks for the encouragement. There are warnings about being careful to seat the beads correctly. Makes it sound like instant death will occur if not. So I was a little concerned when it wasn't...

    Bead seating tips?

    No amount of massaging brings the beads up into place. They dive at various points.

  12. What makes you long distance riders want to ride so much?

    I really admire folks who do long distance riding/training.
    Was wondering what it is that makes you want to be on the bike so long and in all conditions year after year, day after day.

    Chain-L vs. Boeshield T9 for chain lube?

    Chain-L lasts way longer between relubes, which I like.
    Other than that, I have no idea what might make one "better" than the other.

  19. How low can I go on tire pressure on my tires?

    I use Schwalbe Marathon HS420 Green Guard tires - 44-584.

    They measure 650b x 40.5mm wide in real life on the rim and inflated to 55psi.
    Lowest recommended on sidewall is 50psi.

    But, I have been wearing a helmet light and a quick, friendly, passing shine into their cabin seems to be doing the trick. They seem to be slowing now after I give the friendly light pass.
