More reliable? WTF. Twice as heavy, maybe, but a well tuned spoked wheel is about as strong as anything and doesn't get pushed by a sidewind. I can buy the tire lasting longer, but that wheel isn't...

Great report

How much Spanish do you have to know to take a trip like you are taking? I've had very little and my wife has had more but has forgotten a lot. Would we be crazy to try your trip or one similar?
