comment 135mm rear end, 130mm rear wheel, Titanium frame
Not yet, but it's back on my mind. The shop told me the wheel in particular needs to be re-dished for 135 spacing as well.

Depending on progress and availability, I'd suggest looking into local group rides. Beginner oriented rides are generally 25 KM/H, and have a "no drop" policy -- there's the chance of coaching and/or riding partners.

comment Which type of frame is better for a touring bike, steel or aluminium?
Have to be nuts to use carbon for a touring frame - an accident or outright failure is a very big concern. Aluminum, steel or Titanium can fail but can still be ridden (depending). Titanium is less likely as a touring frame, but a possibility - a cross frame is more common and would serve perfectly well. On that note, disc brakes would be the only option - assuming you want to stop while packing gear... ;)

comment Disc brake freezing at end of ride
What model of Avids? My BB7s have two dials, on either side, to control either pad. Spin the wheel & play with one dial to see if there's an issue -- if not, try the other side.
