comment Will I notice the benefits of changing wheels?
I can second applying some skepticality to wheels with weird spokes. My bike came with some Shimano wheels that had fancy spokes that attached & adjusted at the hub, not the rim. When I needed some replaced after a few years, the bike shop had to special order them at not-insignificant cost. Another few thousand miles down the road the only choice to fix broken spokes was a new wheel. Fancy & lightweight tend to tradeoff for durability & future costs (not to mention now-costs).

comment If I can't find the hole causing a flat tire, do I need to replace the tube?
This makes me feel wasteful—I would have just swapped for a new inner tube and trashed the flaky one.

comment How to keep my manbag in place
A lot of messenger bags have a strap specifically for this. Timbuk2 calls it a cross strap and even made a video showing how to use it.
