    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Cycling Specific Vocabulary

    Calling all German/Swiss-German speakers!

    I thought about putting this in the the Wheel section but this is urgent and I thought there would be more people viewing this section.

    I need to take my bike to the local bike shop today because my rear wheel is out of true (wobbly) and I planned to go riding this week but I dont want to risk breaking a wheel, I'm better at speaking German than the shop owner is English and I would prefer to learn the specific words:

    Was bedeutet diesen wörter auf Deutsch?

    Rim
    Nipple (you can understand why I'm not searching at work )
    Spoke
    And the equivalent verb for 'trueing' a wheel.


    Dankeschön

    When I go to German bike shops I usually find that they really appreciate it when you call them a dumkuff and tell them their shop smells like schizer.
