    Few days new to the forums:

    hi I am from Cali. and plan on entering the road cycling world in September when I get all my gear and all that. I had a nishiki century but it got stolen, it was a used bike I had for a few months so I plan on getting a new bike and really becoming a serious rider because I already enjoy biking so much.

    Not sure if this is appropriate here but I was also just wondering if someone could tell me some of the slang and vocabulary used out in the cycling world/ here on the forums. Just so I am aware and do not feel like too much of a noob when I get on the road.

    Well, welcome aboard!

    OK, a dictionary would take up more space that I have time to be able to devote.

    Just be sure to get a good D Lock for the bike. Other than that, jump in and have fun.

    I have a nice lock but it isn't a d lock, hopefully that will work alright.

    Too bad about the Century--I have several Nishikis, and love them all!


    Some bits of slang, just to get you started:

    MUP = Multiple Use Path
    Fred = someone completely dorky, OR someone who wears all the kit, but hasn't a clue.
    Campy = Campagnolo

    That should get you started!

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
