What does changing the headtube angle from 75 to 74 do?  Does it make the front end a little slower?  And what the heck does that mean? 
Will everybody stop killing each other, please?  Thank you and goodnight.

Yes it does make it slower.
But you can counteract that by pedaling faster. Or if you ride down a hill and gather up some speed you wouldn't even notice.

nice ;D I always like the antifreeze green too, something about that shine. When im riding though there are times when its painfully bright but I can see it from a mile away.
