    Commuter in KC.

    Hi,
    I'm from Overland Park, KS. I've been commuting now for about a month. I've got a Diamondback Edgewood07 that I bought for a little less than $300 and it's served me well so far with little issues. I have a 2 1/2 mile commute and enjoy every second of it.

    I have one question though. Is there an image somewhere that shows the different components on the bike? I've been trolling around the site for awhile and have no idea what parts are what and where they are on my bike. For instance? Cassette? Crankset?

    Thanks for the help.
    Brett

    Welcome, lots of KC folks on here lately.

    Don't know of one image, but Sheldon Brown's site is usually a good place to start: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/
    Make your banana pancakes, and pretend like it's the weekend.

    Take a deep breath, and ask--What would Sheldon do?

    lol, no. My dad is a Tiger's fan. So if he were to name me after a baseball player it probably would have been Cecil lol.
