    Terminology

    Cheers.

    I've read a few threads where posters ask for advice in "plain English" - and these are sometimes native English posters. How about a thread or forum where essential terminology is explained, possibly with pictures? I know I could have used it earlier, as terms like "rear derailleur" may not be obvious at first.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Check it out. You could not get a more complete source. He also has just about anything else you would want to know about cycling.

    He also has an interesting French-English cycling dictionary, as well as French and Russian translations of several of his articles.

    Thanks!

    I've read his articles, but didn't notice the glossary. Guess I wasn't looking!
