Thanks, that is what I should have said because the thread I gleaned that info from was on the R&R, which goes to show I am not only fat but stupid, to boot. I actually get by on some cheap frame with all 1.125 tubes, but that doesn't mean anyone buying a custom should do that.

Anyway, my point is that I am grossly at the margins and still manage to not break anything. Even stuff like a cross country tour is only a few thousand miles and many people comute their way through that over and over. Super gear is appropriate to those who need it and do rougher trips or just like it.
