    My two cents

    My riding is more utilitarian or functional. I have a touring bike and I go shopping with it along with going on trips. I'd recommend you look into the Trek Portland - disk brakes, fenders; you can...

    I wear a bluetooth headset while I ride to and from work - to listen to music. Also to answer the "when are you coming home?" call from my wife. I can still hear traffic noise while rocking to Queen.

    My understanding of the advantage of threadless: only one tool needed to adjust (Y-Hex), can allow fine adjustment of bike to person - by changing stems to adjust length and or angle.

    I started with this toolset from REI for $70. Over time, I

    $80 dollars for a pair of wheels is actually pretty cheap.
