I'm not sure if there is. But, if you want general good information on cycling, one of the best
sites on the web is, IMHO, www.sheldonbrown.com Similarly, for those of us on the other side of the
pond, there's http://www.myra-simon.com/bike/

Hope this helps a bit.

Cheers, helen s

However, if you want to be like Fabrizio:

1. Buy a bike
2. Ride
3. Go to step 1

Step 2 is optional.

You obviously don't read rec.bicycles.racing! Then you wouldn't have to wonder...

This goes to show (and it's happened to me before) that somebody asking for one precise bit of
information can get many replies, set off flame wars, etc. Only one reply would have been
sufficient- the link to the FAQ.

Hello GS! I am sure you would have a point if a news group was a customer service counter. It's not
tho. More like a relief valve for a portion of cycling's humanity.

Best regards, and good luck! Bernie

Really? Do you think it presumes too much to think that posters know how to use a search engine?
There are several bicycle FAQs, and among those, several are served at different sites. Simply
typing "bicycle FAQ" will bring up all those links. Thanks for the warmth.
