About This Quiz

Are you going to take a leisurely ride through this quiz or are you going to race on through?  

While it may seem humble and unassuming, the bicycle is actually one of the most popular modes of transportation in the world. In fact, it has been reliably calculated that there are more bicycles than cars worldwide! On the surface, the average bicycle may seem simple at first glance. Nothing about a bicycle screams 'complexity' or 'intricacy' when you first lay eyes on it. However, when you really take a moment to focus on what truly makes s bicycle tick, you'll find that there are a lot of stationary and moving parts that make this humble technological marvel function effectively and reliably.

If we were to make a quiz with every single bicycle part, you would be here for a very long time. So, we've managed to narrow down the selection to a reasonable 40. From saddles to handlebars and shock absorbers to skirt guards, your knowledge of the original two-wheeled marvel will be out to the ultimate test. Get your helmet ready and let's see if you've got what it takes!
