Bike Week: Bike Components

August 17, 2011

Its Bike Week and it has nothing to do with Laconia NH!

Just like swimming, I am really new to biking, or do I call it cycling? What is more official? I acquired my first road bike only a couple weeks ago, so I have a lot to learn. What better way to start than to learn the parts of the bike. This will give people the illusion that I know what I am talking about and help me talk the big talk when I have to deal with some snobby little bike shop employee.

I found this great diagram from biker Jim Langley, Bicycle Aficionado, that identifies all the components. There are some good other resources he has compiled on this site as well.
