    Thank you, I am pretty new here and could figure out all the short terms except SS. Now I know its Single Speed and I'm tempted to join the few and the weird!

    How does Trail fit into the whole DH, FR, AM, XC scheme of riding?

    I'd say between XC and AM. To me, a trail bike is more a "fun machine" then a super light XC racing bike or all deck-out AM killer. I guess it depends on how and where you ride.

    To me, it's like a smooth transition between XC/AM as FR is to AM/DH. Thought both are completely different anyways.

    3x9 means three chainrings up front on the cranks and nine gears on the cassette in the rear.
    2x9 means two chainrings and nine gears on the cassette.

    Both require shifters and derailleurs. Shifters are on the handlebars and are how you select gears. Derailleurs are in the back and react to your moving the shifters by moving the chain.

    The numbers on Shimano parts are basically just consumer part numbers and allow you to identify which model year and level your stuff is. You can usually assume that the higher numbers are newer. In order to find out what each part number means to how it will work with your bike, you'll have to open up google and do some searching on their specs.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
