Calling vintage steel bikes 'old and tedious' should get you banned from this forum.

When riding in San Diego you will want good brakes. While it's not all hilly, it is very hilly, and steeply so, in parts; enough parts that you really do want good brakes.

A corollary to that is you will want a few low gears. Without higher gears, you can always just coast down hill but some of the roads are quite steep and you will want some low gearing.
