comment Shift lever and boss (mount point) compatibility matrix
@FredtheMagicWonderDog, That's a help, for sure. Do you happen to know about between manufacturer compatibility? That would be alright if all types in the requested matrix are simply categorized by manufacturer.

comment Insurance for carless cyclist in California
Can you clarify what kind of insurance you are asking about? Is it for your occasional driving of a rental car, for example? Or for insurance for when you might cause damage caused by you when bicycling? The question and update are ambiguous, yet either would be applicable and important to people who don't own a car.

comment Different kinds of Handlebars
These remind me of a road "drop" style handlebar that took this shape natively. It was called Scott Drop-in handlebars. Basically, they are road bars with a lower horizontal grip area, parallel to the top.

Added text to clarify question. Added the "adjustment" tag.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
I suspect that the long rails on the originally posted triathlon bike's saddle is to compensate for the only-vertically-adjustable height. If the adjustment axis was at an angle, then long saddle fore/aft adjustment would not be as necessary.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
My interest is in the angle of the adjustment axis. I realize that the resulting geometric angle made by bottom bracket to saddle to handlebars is different for Triathlon / TT bikes. Good point about the overall geometric angle though, thank you!

@R.Chung, I will take a look a the link(s) and accept an answer or summarize my own findings. Thanks for the pointers!

comment Alfine 11 chain guard
I think any chainguard designed for a single front chainwheel with a single rear cog should work for you. That is to say, most any standard aftermarket chainguard should work for you.

comment Reverse center pull cantilever brakes (how to set up and issues)
@WTHarper Update: I removed the cable anchor bolt from an old aluminum saddle cable hanger. I bent the bolt hole towards the side with the curled lips that hold the saddle cable, to a 90 deg angle. I inserted a noodle's tip into that to create the lower pull point as discussed above. However, the noodle bend bumps into the hanger causing the cable to emerge from the noodle at a slight angle instead of straight out. This made it rub against the noodle's sharp tip edge. So I abandon that approach until I find a piece/way to attach the hanger further down to leave clearance for the noodle.
