The Road Bike
The Road Bike
Winnie. My bike's a Schwinn and that name just kind of seemed to naturally flow out of that. Plus, it's a vehicle, so it's almost gotta be a female name (like a ship, etc.)
Winnie and I are going home now. Two days down, three to go.
My previous ride was Frankenbike (RIP...I hope whoever stole you took good care)
They are both called "My Bike". If further elaboration is required, they are referred to as "The Blue One" and the "The Black One" respectively.
I did name the black one "Black Friday" at one point but by Saturday it didn't seem like such a great name anymore.
Oh well... my bikes are called "the road bike, the touring bike, and the commuter bike"
I know what you're thinking... "Why didn't I think of that?"
Some people just can't be as clever as me.....
"I thought of that while riding my bike."

I usually call them by their brand, i'll come up with some good names today.
@ Squirtdad: "Kermit's Revenge"
My three bikes:
Dahon Speed P8: either "Lil Red" or "The Tank" thanks to its beefy Big Apple tires.
Bike Friday Pocket Crusoe: Officially: "The DC Flyer"; otherwise "Orange Crush"
Specialized Hard Rock: "The One Who Gathers Dust on the Back Porch"
1989 Lumaca Schiacciata
2003 Réfléchi Souteneur
2010 salsicha vermelha
"Rocky" for my trusty '98 Rocky Mountain Cardiac - before it was stolen last summer.
"Rico Pave" (pronounced "Pah-vey") - My 10+ year old Aquila Pave touring bike (rhymes with "Rico Suave", which I thought was a good name for an exotic bike like an Aquila... Ok not that funny, but he's still Rico to me!
Both my bikes are/were male. I'm purchasing a LHT this winter, in Truckaccino. We haven't met yet, but I think its probably a male too. We'll have to get better acquainted before I get around to names.
Peace - and happy riding!
TV Sucks. Ride Your Bike!
My bike is the Flux Capacitor.
My new Casseroll SS is called Rita in honor of Dexter's recently deceased wife.
Each of my previous bikes, have been named except for my first bike. My current bikes are "The Crazy Dammit", "Dammit Mk VII" (had I thought about it before I did, I'd have named it Dammit Gary VII), "Henry (the Eighth Dammit)".
The previous ones were:
The Green Ghost
The Grey Ghost
Le Baron Rouge (I was in french)
The Bon Homme Dammit
The Dammit Rouge ( The results of Le Baron Rouge and Dammit being Canibalized )
The Carl Vincent Dammit
Dammit Mk VII is my Avatar and Signature image
Stay Dammit! Stay! Good Dammit!
"My bike" (my main user bike). I am also working on a fixed gear that I recycled from an old frame I got for 15 bucks. I got it powdercoated white and I call it my "white bike". I know the originality is astounding
38 pound special....when its loaded with bags & gear, which is pretty well all of the time.
