Oft-heard cycling phrases that get on your nerves

Hip Priest

This thread is petty, nit-picking and not entirely to be taken seriously, but feel free to join in.

1. "Gents bike" - Only ever used to describe BSOs, and makes you think of toilets
2. "I'm going for a cycle" - No, you're going for a ride.
3. "I've ordered my new n+1" - No, you haven't. n+1 is a term used to describe the correct number of bikes to own. It isn't a single bicycle.
