Thanks for any recommendations,

Re: crating, all wood has to be treated and certified. Used bikes fogged and certified.

Alejandro Lago is a reliable source for fixing/garaging your bike. He usually stocks Heidenau tires too. You will spend most of your time riding pavement, but I wouldn´t recommend street tires as they are useless (and dangerous) in gravel, which you will also have. I´ve found the K-60s to be a good compromise.
In action, timing is everything. Force doesn’t matter.
 Weight doesn’t matter.
 Even being morally right doesn’t matter.
 All that matters is timing.
