The words "disc" and "disk" are pretty much interchangeable. Merriam-Webster Unabridged lists "disc" as a variant of "disk".

I guess they could be related if you pedal around admiring the petals on the flowers.

If break has nothing to do with biking then you aren't biking hard enough. As I have learned the hard way, sometimes a break will stop you much more abruptly than a brake.

I do understand your point though, it gets annoying wometimes when people don't talk English goodly

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
