Really fun bike to ride, it needs a pedal upgrade (I'm thinking old school rat traps.) It also has a very slight, but ever so annoying front wheel hop. What's the fix for this?

The tire bead may not be sitting correctly. Sometimes if you let the air out and maybe move the tire a bit and re inflate it may run smoother.
I took a look at the tire and that was in fact the case, the bead was a bit cattywompis creating kind of a flat spot. I stumbled on a set of slightly wider tires (700 x 38) cruises like a charm
