Look on the side of the tire and if it is a 26" tire and the width falls between 2.5 and 2.7" then it will fit it. Then you go to the drop down menu and select schrader if you have a valve that looks like a car tire valve and then presta if it is skinny and you have to unscrew the top.

You yourself could fit in the actual tent part that zips up, but it would be tight for both of yall. My ground pad is 20 inches wide so if you had one of those and were all the way to one side then your dog would have 20" of width and 90" of length to sleep on. So if he can sleep in the small of space he could sleep in there but it would be cramped. He could definetly chill in the vestibule which is covered by the rain fly but has no floor like the inside of the tent you will be sleeping on. you could bring a tarp and put it down there and he could sleep on that, but then you'd have to bring like a trash bag to put over your pack and extra things so they don't get wet because you'd usually put that inside your vestibule unless you bear bagged it.
Hope that helps

The yellow piece allow you to cut off or turn on the bite valve. If you have it one way you can't get any water through it so if you step on it it or sleep on it you won't get soaked and lose all your water. Then you turn it on and drink. When you put it in the pouch, make sure where the hose meets the bladder is at the bottom so you won't be sucking against gravity trying to get your water out.

It does not come with a bladder, but your 100oz should be fine. If it is too big then you don't have to fill it to capacity and it'll work fine. I looked everywhere for a size of the hydration sleeve, but I couldn't find anything.

Man if I were you I would buy the Solaris because 1. It has a better hip belt and this will take alot of the weight off your shoulder when you walking around everywhere and will help alot! 2. It has a lower compartment access so you can get to the stuff in the bottom of your back without having to go through your whole pack. 3. It is hydration compatible so if you want to you can throw you a bladder in there and keep some water with you at all times so you can grab a drink when you need it. 4. Finally the mesh where your back is up against the pack on the solaris is gonna let your sweat evaporate quicker.
Hope that helps

As Angus said they would work fine, but your foot would move around alot more than they would if you had road pedals and the tension is not as tight on them because you have to get out quicker when your on the mountain. Again they would work fine they would just have more play in them than a road pedal.
