Where can I find a glossary of bike parts. I read q&a's but have no idea what the parts are. Cassette, chain rings etc.

  • 1/2 Up in the top right corner of SE is "Search Q&A" Pop your question in there before posting a new question. – Criggie May 5 '17 at 3:12
  • 2/2 If nothing in there seems to match, as you type your question keep an eye on the right-hand sidebar where SE will list "relevant questions" – Criggie May 5 '17 at 3:13

    @Criggie I got caught out the other day - relevant questions only appears on the desktop site. It seems more effective than the search. – Chris H May 5 '17 at 7:30

    @ChrisH I was not aware there was a mobile site. Thank you. – Criggie May 5 '17 at 9:59
  • @DaveC If there are any terms you're looking for which aren't in the linked "Terminology Index" then add them, or put a comment in. You can also join the Bicycles Chat for a less-structured question/answer/discussion. – Criggie May 5 '17 at 10:00

Sheldon is good starting point:

    This is a link-only answer that relies on an external site. On SE we prefer answers to be self-contained. Have a browse of the tour to learn the finer differences between SE and other sites. – Criggie May 5 '17 at 3:15
  • @Criggie The question specifically asks for a glossary and the answer provides one. OK, the question isn't a good one but you can't seriously expect somebody to answer by typing in a whole glossary! – David Richerby May 5 '17 at 10:12
  • @DavidRicherby you're right - that would be unreasonable given we already have a glossary in the site. Which can always be expanded with new information. – Criggie May 5 '17 at 10:16
  • @Criggie Sure. It just seems unhelpful to ding somebody for providing a link when that's exactly what the question asks for. – David Richerby May 5 '17 at 11:07

    The correct answer is to close the question as a duplicate, which will point the OP to our terminology index question. – RoboKaren May 5 '17 at 17:06
