  • I found this on the RECENTLY LOVED WORDS list. What does it mean? Does it have anything to do with a burning sack of dog poo left at someone's front door?

  • I first saw this word on the BikeSnob blog. This blog has several new words created every week.

    " Fred presents his USA Cycling license when he buys a Zippp Spud Wankery Firecrap Crabon wheelset with drug testing surcharge built into the already ridiculous price:"

    Zipp makes a "Carbon Clincher FireCrest Road Bike Wheelset Cycling Wheels" which is selling for 2000 dollars on eBay.

    So "Firecrap" is a word that pokes a little fun at the Firecrest name.

    Zipp named the Firecrest after a bird for it's aerodynamic properties.
