    Good job, you've taken the first and most important step.

    I suggest you consider a weekly goal such as rides per week or hours per week. Ignore the miles and the speed for now, just ride.

    Yeah, pop for some new wheels. No sense spending dollars on an old wheel set that's several years old.

    If I can get 2 years of daily use out of a wheel set, I figure I got my money's worth.

    I haven't had a chance to play with the Yaw yet. Sounds interesting, though.

    But in general observation, SRAM stuff seems less tolerant of mis-adjustment than Shimano.

    For ultra-light touring, I'd toss in some jazz dance shoes. They're about as light and as small as shoes can get, they sort of look like street shoes, and they're cheap.
