Tire: Structure made of cotton and steel fibers coated with rubber, mounted on the rim to form the casing for the inner tube.

Rim: Metal circle constituting the wheel’s circumference and on which the tire is mounted.

Hub: Central part of the wheel from which spokes radiate. Inside the hub are ball bearings enabling it to rotate around its axle.

Fork: Two tubes connected to the head tube and attached to each end of the front-wheel hub.

Headlight: Lamp illuminating the ground a few yards in front of the bicycle.

Front brake: Mechanism activated by a brake cable, comprising a caliper and return springs; it forces a pair of brake pads against the sidewalls to slow down the front wheel.

Brake lever: Lever attached to the handlebars for activating the brake caliper via a cable.

Head tube: Tube using ball bearings to transmit the steering movement to the fork.

Stem: Part whose height is adjustable; it is inserted into the head tube and supports the handlebars.
