    In 2007, a friend did the PBP/ Ironman combination the other way round with less than 2 weeks between. Apparently PBP is harder.

    I've used a soft S&S case for over a decade. Never wanted a hardcase for it and standard bike bags are too bulky for taxis or small hire cars. Packing/ unpacking the S&S bag takes extra time though.

    200 to 300 is not a big step up. 300 to 400 is a big step. Enjoy your ride, you'll be fine.

    You've just gone to higher gears, shorter cranks and to spinning more? I'd swap the cassette to something more forgiving.
