Bicycle Basics: Parts of a Bicycle

As in any equipment or tool that I use, I do some research to become more familiar with them. With familiarity, I will be able to better use the tool and enjoy working or using it.

The same is true with bicycles. And since I decided that having a bicycle is a long term endeavor, I decided to get to know my bicycle a little bit more. I'm just glad that the internet contains a wealth of information about bicycles and it could be quite overwhelming sometimes.

A quick Google search has turned up the page at http://www.jimlangley.net/wrench/bicycleparts.html which includes an illustrated bicycle with most, if not all, bicycle parts named and listed. It certainly is very, very useful.
