    Bike Jargon and Acronyms

    Ok I've been lurking around these forums for a few weeks now researching road bikes so next summer when I've saved enough cash I can buy a bike. In doing so I've deciphered a bit of the jargon.

    e.g.
    FD = Front Derailleurs
    RD = Rear Derailleurs
    etc...

    A lot of the terms are pretty much straight forward but for the life of me I can not figure out what "crit" means. Anyone want to fill me in ??

    Just be glad you don't ride a recumbent because you'd have twice as many acronyms to learn.

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
