Re: Long trip planned-- advice welcome!
Real good advise listed above. If I were doing that ride I would get a steel framed bike and have a welder check out all the welds and maybe even reinforce the welds. For rims I would go with Worksman. My guess is you already know what type of extra bike parts to have with you.
PS: sounds like a real fun ride!
