I looks like it's just been broken into sections based on established routes/trails per the Kennett Bros. books to me.

Seems strange to read "This is provisional and should not go public" on a public Blog, too :D

Is anyone riding what they already have, or is _everyone_ invoking the all important n+1 rule?

How narrow is too narrow?

I've only got one bike, so that's it for me :blush:

Although, there is of course a lot of merit in n+1...

I've only got 8 bikes, I think, so I have narrowed it down to one, but its taken me 2 years.
My feeling is that:
narrow=fast
wide=comfort,
too wide=slow
too narrow=harsh
