Biking Esoteric Term Glossary?

i was wondering if there's a site or thread here, that outlines all those terms that newbies (i.e. me) don't understand? like clipless pedals? as far as i knew there were just pedals... and what's spinning? the list goes on so could you help me out?

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.

Hey, all I got was articles about spoke nipples.

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