TOPIC: What are wheels?

What are wheels? 4 months 4 weeks ago #4140

i've been thinking of buying a new bike but nearly all the ones I see advertised include a "wheel" at the front and a "wheel" at the back. So what are these "wheel" things and are they important?
I've done some research and I think they are the round things which rotate. Most often they have a tyre and an inner tube round the circumference which make the ride a bit more comfortable but they can be prone to punctures if you go over thorns or broken glass. Or sometimes just if the cycling gods want to annoy you.

On my old bike the back wheel was not so much round as angular based on the new pound coin or the old threepenny bit. I once saw a clown at the circus on a bike with an oval wheel, which was hilarious for about 20 seconds.
Have you any interesting wheel based anecdotes? If so, share them here B) .

Wheels can be a pain, especially when your tyre gives you that ‘deflating’ feeling :S . As far as pedals are concerned, well, I’ve always gone ‘clipless’ but if you check out the E bikes on show at Avenham Park this Saturday (see the link) all of this pedalling malarkey might become a thing of the past.

Round,
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half-forgotten dream
Like the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?
Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Is the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of his hair?
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
