    Try www.Sheldonbrown.com . Good words on many things. If not try Wikipedia; suprising things there. Still no answer? Use the BF search function. Only then post a question and do not be put off by the occasional uncouth answer.

    I'm gonna go google spoke nipples, right now.

    Just keep hanging around here, slickhare. Open any question that looks at all interesting, and you'll pick it up quicker than you'd ever believe.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Thanks for the hot tip, ollo <he said, dryly>
