yoko: (orig. oh no) that feeling you get as the fat bloke in jeans on the mtb passes you on your roadie in full lycra ;)

choako: that feeling you get as the guy on a carrera whizzes past your colnago :ohmy:

nelson: (orig. ha-ha) opposite of a yoko, that feeling you get overtaking the lycra-clad roadie on your mtb in jeans :ohmy:

half-nelson: like a nelson only you're both roadies/mtbers in appropriate clothing but the bike you've just gone past is considerably more expensive.
