The 100-mile Stretch is OK with me - I can squeeze it to 125 when I really need to, but the 100-mile Stretch seems to work fine to get off the bike, walk a bit for 5-minutes and go back to riding. I can see where it might be a bother on long-distance trips.

The only time it bothers me is when I'm in the mountains and get above 90-miles... Then it becomes critical to think where the next stop will be.
