Mountain Bikes


Bike parts:

Bike chain: the bike chain, or the loop of chain links that encircle the gears, make the wheels turn. This is the most common wear point, after tires, needing maintenance. Blocking: legally impeding the progress of opposing riders to allow teammates a better chance of success. Blow up: to suddenly be unable to continue at the required pace due to overexertion. Blow/pop a tire tube: another tube bites the dust. It can be a slow leak or a total blowout. Don’t fret, flat tires happen to the best of cyclists, which is why riders always carry extra tubes and a portable CO2 canister or pump to re-inflate the tire when on the go. BMX: a compact design patterned after children’s bikes, popularized by Haro and others, for doing tricks or riding on a closed-circuit track. BMX bikes are made stronger that most, to withstand continual punishment. Size is measured by the length of the top tube. Bonk: a state of severe exhaustion caused mainly by the depletion of glycogen in the muscles because the rider has failed to eat or drink enough. Once it occurs, rest and high-carbohydrate foods are necessary for recovery.


HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets "< >", within the web page content. HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like and, although some tags, known as empty elements, are unpaired, for example. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags). In between these tags web designers can add text, tags, comments and other types of text-based content.

Bonk: runners call it "The Wall," cyclists call it "Bonk." Bonk is a state of utter exhaustion most often felt by riders who skimped on breakfast or didn’t hydrate well. Bonk recovery requires rest, H2O, and high-carb foods. Boot: a small piece of material used inside a tire to cover a cut in the tread or sidewall. Without it, the tube will push through and blow out. Bottom bracket: the part of the frame where the crank-set is installed. Also, the axle, cups and bearings of a traditional crank-set, or the axle, retainer rings and bearing cartridges of a sealed crank-set. Bpm: abbreviation for beats per minute - in reference to heart rate. Brain bucket: bike helmet – always wear a helmet. Break, breakaway: a rider or group of riders that has escaped the pack. Brakes: a handy addition used to slow the bike. Road bike brakes come in a variety of styles and are usually found near the shifters. The left brake puts the kibosh on the front tire and the right brake slows the back tire. To abruptly stop, squeeze both brakes. Bridge or bridge a gap: to catch a rider or group that has opened a lead. Bunch: the main cluster of riders in a race. Also called the group, pack, field or peloton. Bunny hop: a way to ride over obstacles such as rocks or logs in which both wheels leave the ground.
