For tires, check out the Resist Nomad in 700x35. They're cheap, light, and surprisingly durable. I have them on my '92 Miyata Quickcross and through hundreds of miles of city riding haven't flatted...

Finally got some photos of my commuter, a '91 Miyata Quickcross. Got it for <$100 off Craigslist, and some parts bin swaps, new tires, and a tune up later, it's good to go. The tires are Resist Nomad...

Looks nice! It looks like the San Jose has rack braze-ons, any reasoning for choosing a beam-type seatpost rack over a standard one?
