Introductions - Few days new to the forums:
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

hi I am from Cali. and plan on entering the road cycling world in September when I get all my gear and all that. I had a nishiki century but it got stolen, it was a used bike I had for a few months so I plan on getting a new bike and really becoming a serious rider because I already enjoy biking so much. :)
Not sure if this is appropriate here but I was also just wondering if someone could tell me some of the slang and vocabulary used out in the cycling world/ here on the forums. Just so I am aware and do not feel like too much of a noob when I get on the road.:p

Well, welcome aboard!
OK, a dictionary would take up more space that I have time to be able to devote. ;)
Just be sure to get a good D Lock for the bike. ;) Other than that, jump in and have fun.

I have a nice lock but it isn't a d lock, hopefully that will work alright. :)

Too bad about the Century--I have several Nishikis, and love them all!
Some bits of slang, just to get you started:
MUP = Multiple Use Path
Fred = someone completely dorky, OR someone who wears all the kit, but hasn't a clue.
Campy = Campagnolo
That should get you started!
Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions :) !
