Energizer and Duracell both have Li (lithium) versions of the CR2032 battery. I've used the Energizer and found they last a fair bit longer than the normal variety but they are harder to find and cost a little more.

Lighter. The pair of 8.5's I had came in at 11oz each.
Waist. It's a fairly new design from Nathan that comes in 3 sizes instead of a "one size fits all" approach. Reference the Tech Specs on the right side for the appropriate size.
The short answer is no. If you are really good at waxing you could take a skate ski and make it work for classic, but it would be less than ideal. A waxless classic ski (the kind with scales in the middle) would be extremely taxing to skate with. If you are looking for some good cross training for cycling and go skate style. I ditched the trainer years ago in favor of skate skis and loved it. It is much easier to get an aerobic workout from skating right away than it is from classic style. I would also suggest you take a lesson so you are less likely to form bad habits that become hard to break down the road.
6 oz. according to quick search.
I wore an 8.5 in the CD's and the 8.5 Masochist feels perfect. I did run in an 8 for a while but the toe box felt a bit cramped and I started turning toenails black.
Go with 8.5.
It used to be that traditional frames flexed a little bit more since the overall geometry was bigger. However, with as stiff as frames have been getting the difference in flex between the two would be minimal. Sloping frames do tend to react a little quicker when cornering and accelerating than traditional frames but it sounds like that's not a big priority for you.
I would say go for the traditional if you're going to be doing longer rides without racing much.
Yes it does, but you cannot see the vertical gain/loss until the exercise is downloaded to the software.
The tech specs are wrong, the Observer is not PC compatible. The specs above also indicate that it does not have a chronograph, it does.
I own the masocshist's as well as the montrail streaks and for the non-technical stuff I prefer the streaks. The Masochist are a little bit stiffer and a little bit narrower than the Streaks but they weigh the same. If you're looking for a similar fit but a little more comfort then go with the Streaks, you won't be disiappointed.
It will work just fine with a 16" bike. When my kids were younger I put a 12" bike on this rack. Now we take their 20" bmx'ers with us camping all the time using this rack.
I have the Masochist and the Streaks. The Masochist has a narrower toe box. My feet are pretty narrow so the Masochist works for me but I can immediately tell I have more room when I put on the Streaks.

Yes. It has two small standard type screws on each side that are easily removed. You would have to replace it with something made by Suunto though since it is a proprietary design. BC carries a velcro strap that IMO is more comfortable than the plastic band that it comes with.
No, according to the Suunto website the CODED belt is only compatible with the t1 coded and t1c. You would need the ANT for the t6.
Yes. I machine wash my smartwool shirts in warm, with a cold rinse, delicate dry.
