comment Is it legal for me to ride a bicycle on the pavement (sidewalk)?
As a pretty important side note, "pavement" in this case refers to the sidewalk, not a paved road.

"Pavement" in this case means the sidewalk, not the road. You should update your answer, as it's currently incorrect. It is generally unacceptable most places in the 'States (and here in Toronto, Canada) to ride on the sidewalk.

After trying to get a photo, I realized the "T" was set back inside a little hex socket, and that it is responsible for tightening the lever to the bar. I couldn't tell with a flashlight because the edges were in shadow. Posted my photo as an answer below, thanks guys. Edits to my answer for any specific terminology would be appreciated.

@Daniel I can see a little "T" when I remove the little black cap from the front of the lever. It doesn't appear to be a screw. Photo coming.

@Neil Done and done. I can't see any kind of screw that might be used to tighten them to the handle bars.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
I wouldn't be too hesitant to mention #4, it's pretty objectively true. The sheer number of brightly coloured/ultra minimalist fixies is enough evidence that form seems to be at least as important as function for a lot of people.
