comment Bicycle shoes for road cycling
My only addition to @PeteH answer is find a shoe that fits before choosing a brand or type. Some brands are much better suited to certain foot shapes than others. Also sizes may not be the same between brands.

comment Upgrading cassette - what do I need to be aware of?
Adding to @Kibbee thoughts I would stay away from the very low end no name chains you see on the internet that sell for $6-$7. Just get a decent brand name chain in a price range that suits you.

Some fork manufactures list limits on the the size of the rotor due to the increased load. Check to see if you will exceed the limit with the larger rotor.
