bike breakdown/encyclopedia?

hey, i've been looking thru the forums/threads. i have absolutely no knowledge of bicycles other than riding one. is there a thread on the breakdown of a bike - like each part and it's function, definitions of terms, and any other "common" knowledge info? i've seen on other forums(non-bike) a basic intro for new members to read to get acquainted to the subject. if there is a thread and i completely missed it, my apologies. please understand i don't even know which forum to enter! thanks for the help in advance. and hello to everyone!

These would be wonderful places to start.

The Sheldon Brown site is easy to navigate for information. Search around on the Park Tool site for their clinics and tutorials.

Good luck.
