I think I had my folder for a couple years before i decided to get the MKS EZY pedals. My point is that there is no rush. And you can certainly leave a pedal wrench in the bag.

When I did buy my MKS pedals, that was before MKS made a pedal that was compatible with the Shimano SPD cleats, for that reason I went with a pedal I could attach toe clips instead.

But I prefer cleats, when I did a week long van supported trip with my folder, I brought some tiny little two sided SPD pedals that did not fold since the ridability of the bike was more important than the portability of the bike for that week.

There is no rush on any of this stuff, be patient and use the bike some and then you will have more time to think about what you really want on your wish list.
