• The bottom brackets
on a bike connect the crankset to the bike. The bottom brackets allow the crankset to turn easily.
• The brakes
decrease the speed of a bike or stop it from moving. As pressure is raised at the brakes the friction force is raised.
• The cassettes
are the bunch of sprockets positioned on the rear core of your bike, slotting onto a freehub body and kept securely in place with threaded cassette lockring.
• The chainrings
are the rounded, spiky bit associated with your cranks that pull the chain around. A standard road bike may utilize 53t large chainrings.
• The chains
are the roller chains that convey power from the pedals to the drive wheel of a bike, thus driving it. Most bike chains are constructed from plain carbon or alloy iron.
• The cleats
attach to the bottom of the cycling shoe. A spring tool on the pedal enables you to clip the cleats on shoes in and out of the pedals.
• The cranks
are the part of a bike drivetrain that turns the reciprocating motion of the riders legs into rotational movement used to pressure the chain or belt, which in turn pushes the rear wheel. Cranks are an important part of a bike.
• The derailleurs
are the variable ratio bicycle gearing arrangement including a chain, various sprockets of diverse sizes. Derailleurs are used to shift the chain from one sprocket to another.
• The forks
are the part of a bicycle that secures the front wheel. The forks typically consist of two blades which are connected at the top by a fork crown.
• The bike grips
are intended to give stuffing and vibration damping to keep hands relaxed. The good grips reduce the potential for hand spasms.
• A groupset tool
belongs to any mechanical or electronic parts that are linked in braking, changing gear, or the running of the drivetrain.
allow the rider to prevail moderately straight while at the same time handlebars provide a broad range of hand positions for convenience on long duration rides.
• The levers
in a bicycle are the handlebars. The first class levers have the fulcrum within the effort and load.
• The central idea behind the mudguards
is to hinder water coming off the wheels on the body.
• The pedals
are the parts of a bicycle that the cyclist drives with their foot to drive the vehicle. Pedals present the link between the cyclists foot and the bicycles wheels.
• The power meters
on the bicycles are the devices that estimate the power produced by the cyclist. Most bicycle power meters use strain gauges.
• The bicycle saddles
are often called a bicycle seat. Saddles are one of five touch points on an upright bicycle.
• The bicycle seatposts
are the tubes that stretch upwards from the bicycle support to the saddle.
• The bike stems
are the parts on the bicycles that attach the handlebars to the steerer tube of the bicycle fork.
