I'm 6'6" and actually feel more comfortable on the TUx than many of the bikes I've tried. The bike is small, but the ergos really aren't.

I propped it up on a cinderblock when I had to change my chain. Not the most stable setup, but it worked.

That's not that far. Well, I guess I have a destination for my first pleasure ride when the weather warms up. Not that I won't be riding before then... I just commuting until it's fun again though.

Well, I'm in and paid. It is looking less and less likely that my big tour is happening (I'm short on money, and, to a lesser extent, time). But I should definitely make it down for RDV.

Hammock/tarp. If you set it up high, you can stand. If not, just stand outside your tent to get changed. No one is that worried about privacy when you are in the woods.
