What will i buy next? "asking for input on my next purchase."

MY current thinking is a cannondale bad boy disc with additional set of rims for hot swapping with fatter street tires for my non commute rides through the city.
I believe that this would come under 2000$
I have not priced a set of rims with all the parts yet. the bikes 1060$ plus tax.
my concerns comes on part's and maintenance fees. paid to area bike shops.
Since my current bike is my only means of transportation
""i can't afford down time so i pay for it at the shops"
With a new bike my old one will be my back up so i can try to do my own repairs.

With this in mind i would like opinions on the bikes i see with roller brakes and internal rear gears and even the gates belt drive.
