comment Slow leak on front cruiser tire
How slow of a leak are we talking? 40-50 PSI on a schrader valve with enough temperature fluctuation and heavy loads could easily require top-offs once a week.

comment Did any manufacturer ever try using more, but lighter spokes to minimize weight?
The potential weight advantage comes from less rim. A rim with less spokes needs to be stronger. A rim with more spokes can be thinner and lighter. ... maybe.

Sheldon brown talks about this as the great spoke scam of the 80's. I always assumed since he does not reference a manufacturer that bucked the trend no manufacturer was in fact heading the other direction.

comment What things should I look for when purchasing a fixed gear bike?
Could you define which angles are more or less aggressive? You touched on rider position being more or less upright as well as the wheel being "shoved under" the seat post. Are these the only two significant differences or are there others.

I would say feel free to answer with the typical road bike oriented fixed gear commuter/bar hoping "townie" fixed gear ride in mind. I would hate to preclude relevant fixed gear info that may apply to other styles of riding though. I was hoping for some discussion about gear ratios bottom bracket height in relation to pedal strikes and similar fixed gear concerns. Even potential conversions.
