No problems Doug - I know I gotta take some leaps eventually, so hearing some techniques is welcome.
You're right Dave that I do all of these things on my bicycle, and it all makes sense in my head. The feel is completely different on this bike though, so it feels like relearning everything - and of course the penalty is much higher if I screw it up. My mind is still so bogged down with coordinating hands and feet while paying attention to what's in front of me that I'm still not comfortable with adding more factors. I'm the slow and cautious type that likes to plan everything. Sometimes that can be detrimental, but I get there eventually.

I am very anxious to make this ride. I have joined their forum and am keeping up on its progress.
