    Round here, Blackburn / Chorley, it stands for Come on You Blues.

    Never heard it in relation to cycling but widely used on Rovers messageboards

    TMN. An award given to someone who has posted something but has been ignored, only to find that shortly afterwards someone else posts the very same thing and gets the credit. Named after, ahem, me, to whom it was happening a lot at the time (January 2013, so it's been around for a while).

    There were other forum awards or measures of various things (see http://www.cyclechat.net/threads/new-si-measurements-as-proposed-by-ccers.121263/page-2#post-2243923) all named for different forum characters and their foibles, but this one seems to have stuck for some reason.

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

    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"

    I honestly have no idea what that means.

    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)
