    Awesome, very good glossary. TY so much and GBU (God bless You).
    maybe add: (bcoz I dont see these on the list)

    Granny - refer to small chainring.
    Bashguard -- usually replacing big chainring to protect the drivetrain.
    Shim -- not sure how to describe it though, need help on this.
    missinglink/ master link -- a chain link that can be detach without tool. (maybe someone has better wording?)
    Dropper post --- adjustable seatpost, could be mechanical like Gravity Dropper or Hydrolic like Reverb.
    WTF -- (when you are about to fall).

    a bit more:
    HAB --- hike a bike, when you r out of gas, you push your bike up.
    Sandbagger --- a rider who said he is a beginner, but actually rips.
    Speedy Gonzales --- my bike's name...hehehe..

    I read this 4 months ago and didn't know what most of it meant. It was nice to come back after some time to read it again and actually understand quite a bit of it now. Great post. :thumbsup:
