Answer to #3 : You might look at something like one of Trekís FX bikes.

BTW, you donít need to go with super skinny high pressure tires to get speed. There are 32-38mm tires out there that roll just as fast an much more comfortable.
My most recent experience is with Mavic USTs. They are lighter, faster, roll easily and are more comfortable. I am totally sold on them.
