He clearly doesn't come across many cyclists, the majority are like

Crank v Brooks 1990


Is Crank a synonym for "cyclist"?


I think it is the thing which connects the spindle inside the bottom
bracket to the pedal.


It can be a lot of things (eg, the name of a small and quite
sought-after village near St Helens in Lancashire and even the German
for "sick").

But in "Crank v Brooks 1990 (or 1980), it looks as though it's being
used as a substitute for a proper noun and there has to be a reason for
that.
