I was unaware of the IRD set. I’ve been debating whether to try the FSA crankset, also JIS. For some reason I just don’t want to go with a triple.

Hills are something you have to work on. Your 28x34 gearing should be low enough. Practice is your friend. :D

I'd say you're close enough. 55cm is my ideal frame size, but most of my bikes are 54cm. I can ride any of them comfortably. You can always resell the bike.

Yup. The top tube has the opposite taper. Weird, huh? I think the older straight downtubes, even though quite large, look better. I bought this bike to be a parts donor, but may leave it as-is. I...

I was in a similar situation a few years back. I ended up taking a loss. You'll have a better chance to get your asking price on the bay. You could always try your local CL.
