Mavic Open Pro rims with Ultegra Hubs. I don't have a cassette on the unused wheel, I found it quite easy to move cassettes between wheels.

Order from England. Usually a better deal than the US. I like http://www.chainreactioncycles.com . Sometimes your lbs will be able to get parts in on a better deal.

Riding a bike isn't that paleo, I think you need to give it up and run barefoot instead. Eat berries and small animals you find along the way. Avoid large cats that might eat you.

Not me, I love clipless 3 seasons, but on those really cold days there is no way. On the plus side the pathways are usually pretty clear when it's below -20c (-4f)
