Sorry, I’m not going to even try to keep this in alphabetical order…
Road Bike Terms-
Cadence:The revolutions per minute (rpm) of your cranks as propelled by your legs. Often used as a measure of efficiency (higher cadence is usually deemed more efficient) or as a guide for gear selection. In road cycling for the last decade, 90 rpm is considered a benchmark cadence.
