comment Does the valve have to be straight when replacing a tube?
deflate, move/offset the tyre on the rim, making the valve straight, and inflate.

comment Does the valve have to be straight when replacing a tube?
@andy256: heavy braking with low PSI can result in tube movement within the rim. If the valve is already at the extreme end, then it could develop a cut where it joins the tube.

comment What is the purpose of landing on the rear tire?
That comment about the root doesn't make much sense. If it's a rooty terrain (roots everywhere) then no matter how you land, you'll have to deal with roots. If there is only 1 root, and upon landing it lies between your front and rear wheel, then hitting it with the rear wheel while the front one is still in the air will only increase the force with which the front wheel will land afterwards, reducing control.

Landing on the rear reduces control and is dangerous. Not sure whether you ride MTB and doing jumps/drops.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
That's a good point, but you can get the same amount of silence when using a freecoaster or a coaster brake. Both of those 2 system's do not have a clicking freewheel.

comment Hard to diagnose squeaking
#3 together with #7 don't make much sense to me. #3 suggests BB related problem but #7 suggests chain friction somewhere (to the chainring? to the chainstays?) but still you mention that it's the same for all gears in #2 (so chainstay rub is out)... Place the bike on the stand and inspect whether the chain comes very close to anywhere that it shouldn't. Also, remove the chain and stand on the bike, trying to pedal. Hop on the bike hard. Is the sound there?

Every answer on this site is speculation, since they are based solely on what the OP provides.

comment Why are some bikes sold without pedals?
Willeke, yes I agree, but this happens just for the transport. High end bikes are usually sold without pedals.
