Anatomy Of A Bicycle – GCN's Maintenance Mondays
Welcome to Bicycle Anatomy 101 with GCN.

Do you know your cassette from your chainrings? Almost definitely, but that fact is that bike parts go by many different names and however long you’ve been cycling it can get complicated.
Daniel Lloyd runs through the various names and functions of the different parts of your bike. You’ll have no trouble describing where that creak is coming from or what’s broken at the bike shop. Even better, have a go at fixing it yourself using our Maintenance Monday playlist: http://gcn.eu/maintmon
The Global Cycling Network puts you in the centre of the action: from the iconic summit of the Stelvio to the epic trails of Fort William, Scotland, everywhere there is pavé or dirt, world-class racing, and pro riders, we will be there bringing you all the action, essential analysis and unparalleled access every week, every month, and every year.

Odd… that looks like a cervélo test team bike
did it rain? tehehehehe
You forgot the rear mech hanger
Great point. And I never knew that the S in STI shifters in a SRAM group set stands for Shimano
Love the video. I lead a training program in Portland for women who want to get started cycling. Many cycling resources presume you know the basics and tend to be much more technical. Kudos to GCN for recognizing that there are many levels of riders out there. I believe if we’ll give more attention to those at the entry level (especially women) we’ll see the sport grow in leaps and bounds.

i did not hear you said anything about qr skewers or i may have missed it.
Where is the sprakel ?
What do you call the part of the wheel where you attach the cassette?
Really good . Thanks it’s great for us beginners .
Awesome post!! more please 🙂
Could you do a video on the oval chainrings?
Good video to learn english ;D
What’s the saddle?
This was super informative. Learned some a bit about how my bike functions even.. Just awesome!
I think hubs weren’t mentioned. It’s the part im really curious about because just days ago, my bike started making some weird sounds which i think are coming from the hubs or the bearings sorrounding that part of the bike. I recently went for a planned uphill bike ride but unfortunately it rained causing my bike to make some weird sounds apart from my chains going hard and needed some trimming during the ride.
i don’t have a top cap (canyon bike) vcls post 2.0
@Global Cycling Network the size of wheel and clinches?? These confused lots of newbie cyclists/triathletes just like me. Haha.
sometimes think GCN make too many superfluous videos. but this one is extremely useful for me. Thanks Dan!
Watch this on low quality and you’ll see a slim hughe jackman
Good video! However, I was kinda missing a small elaboration on the individual headset parts. On most bikes sold today, headsets are integrated and consist of a crownrace, a set of bearings, compressionring and a bearingcap. Also, no mention of the starfrangled nut? 😉
Most newcomers seem to be easily confused by headsets though, which is a shame since its a fairly simple mechanism.
Thank you so much for these videos! Can you talk about cassettes and what ratios are best for different terrain (hills, flat). Thank you.
Hi, I have a Trek 5200 with Ultegra components and on the part of the frame that links to the shifting cables, there is a small lever that clicks from one of 2 positions. I haven’t been able to figure out exactly what it is or what it does, but I can tell that its attached to my front mech. Is it some sort of trim feature adjuster? Thank you.
This is a great vid, especially the quicklink and presta part.
hi just wondering what the name of your bike is (the one in the video?)
in Lithuania we call it rear stars instead of casette
Could anyone tell me the difference, if any, between tubular tires and sew-ups? Cheers.
Did you guys mention the dropouts?
Thank you sir! very informative!
Your videos are so interesting to watch, Ive have learnt a lot by subscribing and watching your videos on a regular basis. Ive just started cycling about 6 months ago and i can see an improvement already.
great video gcn
additional option for these day road bike innovations , like a part from disc brake, part from electronic shifter, etc
STIs you say
is there a video on greasing hubs and bracket?
Can you go through what gearing on the bike you should get.
Powerlink is a proprietary name, you meant masterlink 🙂
Dear GCN: I was wondering if you have any videos on how to move the bike long distances. I mean, how to travel on plane with the bike and how to pack it… Or something like it. I ask because i’m doing a triathlon and need to move my bike on plane. Thanks!
Where is Dan here ?
What is that type of stand called? Im having a hard time finding one?
What about rims and tyres ?:)
Hey my height is 158 cm will I be able to ride it comfortably
Very informative good sir. Spot on everything.
I love cervelo 😉 can i request how about the cyclo computer
@Stephen Flanagan some obair baile for you 🙂
Hi, I just got my first road bike and I’m jumping into cycling, these videos are very good, can you make a beginners playlist please?
Hey GCN i have a 2009 Felt f75 with i think 20,000 miles on it. I’ve crashed a few times pretty bad and theres a small dent on the downtube just above the bottle cage as well as other wear and tear. I was curious about wether or not it might be worth replacing?
