Wow, 40T is quite small. See what your back one is, one tooth smaller can make quite a difference. I run 44T / 17T but I ride pretty aggressively. I can "cruise' 16-17 mph fairly comfortably...

I wouldn't leave a bike I liked more than 10 minutes. At a minimum I'd use a U lock but seriously, if you want to leave a bike for hours, find a crappy bike to use.

Only 2,000 miles on a set of rims? You gotta be kidding me. You roadies need to step down to some 26" cruiser rims, man. 7,000 miles on my current set and Schwalbe 2.35 inchers. Not one flat....
