    That's standard in my world, hehe. You don't need to justify it; it's mathematically N+1 where N = number of bikes you have and +1 is the number of bikes you need. ;)

    I think you're heading in the right direction after perhaps finding your natural training cycle by default. Or possibly it's too aggressive this early, depending on your winter. Is your iron ok? And...

    I can't see how a 650c rear would do anything to help your comfort :confused: but it will probably kill your geometry = handling. The brakes might not reach either, but you can retrofit long reach...
