The ominous silence can only mean that someone, somewhere, is working on a devastating, once-and-for-all putdown of an acronym for TBM.............

And N+1 means the number of bikes you own plus one meaning you should always have one more bike than you already own. Yes, it's confusing.
I have seen this on a motorcycle forum like this, and it is 100% applicable to bicycles:

"What is the ideal number of motorcycles to own?"
"n+1, where n is the number you currently own. This can be alternatively expressed as s-1, where s is the number that will result in separation from your partner."

OK, I'm stumped. 'SCR'? It's obviously not Senior Common Room, and I am guessing from the context it is something like S*** Commuter Race/Racing, but a look at Google doesn't give any results apart from this forum (and The Giant SCR). Anyone?

It's a male thing, but do cyclists have an equivalent for "Put your furniture in the centre of the room"
 
Local Bike Shop, took days to figure out what it meant...:blush:
Yep, me too, couldn't figure out why I'd want to take my bike to the London Business School.

Oh and TLA obviously (Three Letter Acronym)
