Help me build my bike
I plan on cycling around Australia next year
Over a 6 month period I may cover between 10-15000 kms, all depending on how much time I can get off work and how much money I have.
I am 6'2 and weight 95 kg (back to 90 soon)
If money was no object I would buy a Thorn eXp fully speced up.
A more realistic option is to buy a Surly LHT frameset and build according to my needs
I am willing to pay within reason for reliability
So, please help me choose the best components for the job
What wheels and groupset etc should I go for?
