    Thanks for the list. I was getting tired of having to google an acronym every time I read one that I didn't know. I'm slowly gettin it.

    Thanks for the help. vocabulary is a good tool, but short hand words are even better.

    I am very much a rookie so....

    "travel" "single speed" confuse me. What is "travel" .....see it as 120 or 110 or 100....180 etc. what is the significance of the different "travels" ?

    Single speed......I would have thought that a bike with 30 gears would have more than single speed???

    Travel is the amount of frame traveling at maximum compression of the suspension. A 120mm travel bike will usually have a suspension fork of 120mm of available travel and if it's a full suspension frame, the rear wheel can move up to 120mm. But this not mean the rear shock has a 120mm stroke, it can has only 60mm stroke, but the rear suspension design allow for a higher leverage ratio, like a 2:1. So for every 1mm of rear shock movement, your rear wheel move by 2mm.

    Single speed simply means your bike has a single rear sprocket and a single chainring, and not derailleur/shifter. Most singletracks can be ridden easily without ever shifting gears, so by riding around a few times and seeing which gear ratio you're using the most, you can decide if you really needs all your gears of simply put a single cog in the rear that match the one you're using the most often or are the more comfortable with. Same for the front ring.

    According to Wikipedia, it means four-cross (4x) or mountain cross.
