Get some old school bmx pedals with the 1" long daggers, I mean pegs. They work fantastic until you do finally slip up, as the huge scar on my shin will attest to.

+1 on garage sales. I've snagged 2 nice mid level roadies off CL for cheap, under $30 cheap, but you have to be lucky or a troll. Flippers in this area scoop the up as soon as they hit it seems like.

I don't know about the urban pedals, but I love my MKS pedals. They're super light, look good, and are serviceable.

I like the look of the escape 3 better but lean more towards the Fuji for price. They are both pretty similar as far as components. Ride both and see which feels better.

Front suspension is unnecessary for the type of riding you'll be doing. Giant is good value for money on most of their lineup. Specialized has the Globe series also that would be good, but I'm not...

You could get wider drop bars. Does your road bike have "dual lever" brake handles? If so you should be able to reach them in all positions just about. Bar ends would help the one hand issue. Good...

It depends on what your drivetrain mech is as to what types of shifters you can use. For instance if you have shimano rd, stay away from SRAM X series thumb shifters. Shimano Alivio (sp?) may work...

Nice another person from the DMV! It's craigslist so offer up $300 if it feels comfortable. I would go look at it and asked what "tuned" means. Does that include new cables and housings, lube and...

+1 on Altus upgrade. I don't know how new Tourney is, but old Tourney is a major P.I.T.A. I am replacing the Tourney components on my wife's bike with Altus because after every ride I have to...

What types of pedals do you guys use? I use Shimano PD-M520 double sided pedals but have been wanting to try the PD-A530/A600s. My flat bar bike I use half clips on at the moment.

I'd go with the Giant, great value there. At $400 you have some options, look at Specialized, and Fuji also. Fuji make some really nice bikes for a good price.
