Dictionary?

Can we have a new sticky thread called DICTIONARY!

This could be a single link to a cycling dictionary / encyclopedia.

Or a few well labelled pictures naming the bits on the common types of recumbents.

Or something built up slowly whenever a new member miss names something and has to be corrected.

Having agreed manes for things that every one knows will make the communication run smoother. I am not the only member who as struggled with the correct name of things.

A bottom bracket, be it above or below, remains a bottom bracket.
Like it or not, the diamond frame has had more support over the years. This means that many parts were named for a diamond frame, a standard bike.

If you find yourself stuck on what to call it. Describe it as where the crankset attaches, to an axle, allowing you to provide power to the cycle.
