I think he'd maybe rip the handlebars off. If that's the bike you're specifying, I think they're the weakest part of it.

Maybe break the chain.

Six miles, give or take ... I was mostly just testing a new seat, which will be going back to where it came from, and not entirely due to the seat. Bottom line, I'll be performing an N-1 soon.

Fleece seat covers

Anybody here tried these? I'm still trying to tame my Brooks B-67, but I don't want to add much thickness.

Feel free to suggest alternatives. The B-67 measures 10" long by 8" wide.

Attach saddlebags, frame bags, or whatever, enough to contain your pump, tools, tube, etc., and just leave 'em on the bike. Then your only prep time is checking the tires and airing them up if needed.
