Another thing on rail trails: mind your front wheel as soft spots abound.

Add my vote to 32mm tires (or bigger) with fenders. The latter are nice on dusty trails.

I also replaced the stinky pads in my helmet with a bandana. It's easier to...

My helmet cover holds better with the visor and it keeps water off my glasses better than without.

I went from 40cm (more like 39) to 46cm and I love it. You can always put your hands inside a wide bar but not the opposite. Wider bars give a bit more leverage on gravel at slow speed.

I went through 3 Topeak Modula XL cage for 1,5L bottles and they all broke at the same spot (weld). One broke after a couple of days. It's crap.

Now I use Smartwater bottles in standard cages.
