and here i was thinking 'trek house brand on specialized?' I'm a bit wary of 18/24 too. I was
very concerned when I got my Spec. Roubaix with 16/20 and weighed 285lb but they held up very
well and nev...

Three weeks would be a very long, leisurely trip for most folks if it's only 600mi. When you
have nothing to do but bike and relax and take a few photos most folks can ramp up to 60-80mi a
