comment Cramps/pain in feet and toes after turbo trainer rides and cyclocross races
It could be something else, but Occam's Razor suggests it's the shoes, especially if nothing else has changed.

comment How can I interpret the intent of and respond to cars behind me honking?
I would add a sixth type I've run into: Trolls. These people think it's cute or funny to get your attention with the horn, then yell falsely that something's wrong -- "Your rear tire is flat!" is the commonest, but I've also heard "You dropped something!" Nothing much to do but ride on.

Plenty more types of bars than these! Nobody better try to take away my trekking bars. :)

comment I need help to identify this bike
If the bike isn't restorable and you can't find one like it, an Electra Townie might suit -- it has similar curvy tube design, fenders, and fat tires. You'd have to swap out the flat bar it comes with for cruiser bars, but that's not hard at all. Adding a handlebar basket should also be trivial.

comment Does exercising solely through cycling cause injuries?
Easy and helpful prophylactic for ankles: stand on one foot as long as possible. Waiting to cross the street is a fine time to do this. This exercise improves proprioception as well as ankle strength.
