LEXICON

 

IN FRENCH, V.P.S. STANDS FOR ' ' FATBIKE ' ' 

Some English words and expressions turn into quite a challenge to be translated in French, ''FATBIKE'' is one of those words. Impossible to go for one French word only, VÉLO À PNEUS SURDIMENSIONNÉS (BICYCLE WITH OVERSIZED TIRES) is pretty much the only way to say it so why don't we go for the acronym V.P.S.
