How reliable are your commuters?

First post here.

Just bought a Trek Soho S to commute to work on and ride for fun. The ride is flat and only three miles. The low maintenance and simpleness of the single speed was what sold me on that bike.

It came with plastic pedals that the LBS informed me could not take toe clips, so I got those and they put them on.

Long story short rode it home and one work day and 2/3 of the to work this morning and the pedal fell of the crank. The threads in the crank appear to be stripped. So after 13 miles on my new bike it needs to go in for repair.

So this leaves me wondering how often you guys have problems. Obviously not happy about this and a little discourage too!
