What did you name your bike(s)?

Don't laugh. Most of us here have named our bikes.

Please tell us the name and what makes you call it that.

Haha, cool topic idea siu.

Look down at my sig.

From left to right.

Spitfire-Named it this because it just came to my mind while I was putting a spitfire sticker onto my frame. I used to only skate on spitfire wheels, and I had tons of falls while on spitfire wheels. I just love spitfire wheels.

jonah- this was what my cousins, and brothers, and friends called me when I was younger. They also called me jonabonedonafona and stupid crap like that. Lately no one calls me it anymore, so I'm thinking of changing the name

jodie-The first girl I ever liked was named jodie, I love this name it's very pretty, plus a bfer I really like is named this, so I named it after her.

My Raleigh is "Sir Walter"

The passage is "Wanderer"

My MTB/Commuter is "Rolls Canardly" (It's a cheap old Royce Union, and can 'ardly get any attention from thieves! )

Well, the Raleigh should be obvious, the Schwinn Passage is a touring bike and I use it to wander all over the place, and the Rolls Canardly (Royce Union) rolls down the road and can 'ardly get a second look!

I only have one, so I don't really need a name for it, and even if I did, I'm horrible at coming up with names, so it's just "my bike."

Sounds like you just named your bike! It makes it more yours, by the way, to name it! Acknowledges that it has a personality unique to it and places it in a treasured place in the heart.

I call my 1967 Schwinn Paramount "the Paramount." I call my Lemond Zurich "the Lemond." I call my Trek 520 "the Trek" or, sometimes, "the touring bike." I call my Burley Bossa Nova "the tandem." What can I say, I have no imagination.

Well, let's see:

The Raleigh 3-Speed is Miss Moneypenny named for the prim British Secretary in the James Bond Movies.

I named the fancy titanium road bike the Stealth Diva after I stripped all of the decals off.

The 80s lugged steel road bike is the Ave' Maria, named after the heroine in the novel Big Stone Gap.

The 80s touring bike is the King of the Road, because it's mastered every kind of road and terrain imaginable over the past 23 years.

The Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra is the Bad Boy Ultra because I couldn't think of a better name for a mid-life crisis bike.

The grey beater with the jacked up handlebars is the Bad Back Beater because its forgiving set-up helped me beat a bad back.

The folding bike is the Duke of Orange, because, um, it's orange.

As I look at this post I realize that maybe I really am nuts. Oh well.
