    J, after 40 miles of urban riding, I'd be a basket case. Even driving thru that much
    city would leave me frazzled, just bin out in the woods to long.

    My rule of thumb depends on what I'm planning to ride. Because I ride all
    manner of surfaces, I have 700 x 40 tires. On asphalt I run about 80-85,
    which with a strong thumb compresses 1/4" to 3/8"....

    I've been riding an '83 Univega Sport I found in mint condition with hi-end components
    at an absurdly cheap price. I tacoed the rear 27 1/4 cornering into a pothole and decided

    There are a lot of factors to consider here. Age, weight, physical condition, &
    the length of the stages intended. For me its easy; I am old, 11/32.

    I'm an old man; a 50/34 with a tuned 11/32 was the ideal solution for me. The 34, having more leverage
    from the crank, makes accelerating a breeze. I jump to 50 once I'm going good. True you can...

    50 pds. is about as much as I'd care to peddle uphill with anyway. I like the simplicity
    of this thing,no straps or zippers. just clip it shut with a caribeaner. It's got a single

    I'm sure you're right, but it's comforting that, at least, my rear wheel may
    not twist out from under me if the stay snaps. I hope that it may possibly
    prolong the onset of metal fatigue.

    Okay, I'll rephrase that; It's lighter than most aluminum framed
    Mtn. bikes. Maybe we can agree on that. Remember, the bike I'm
    talking about is a small frame mixte.

    looks good to me; It's exactly the same color & frame geometry as my
    mtm. bike, an '89 Raleigh technium Ovation. You must be pretty tall,
    judging from the setup. Mine's a 59cm.
