    Do You Name Your Bikes?

    The other night Joe asked me what I was going to name my new bike. Well, it was something I hadn't really thought of before. So I named her the first thing that came to my head. Eliza. I think I read the name somewhere previously that night. Anyhow, I ride Eliza.

    What is your bike's name(s)?

    Great name, Heather! I have named three bikes as:

    1. My first bike, a Trek1000 (standard) - Fred
    2. My current bike, a Trek1500 (Women's Specific Design) - Patsy
    3. My red moutain bike, a Trek of some kind - The Red Barron

    I named my Trek 930 Jonah.

    I named my Kona Jody.

    I was planning on telling Siu later, but I had been wanting to name my road bike Siu because without her I probably would have never had the balls to buy it.

    Now that I think about it, that might be weird. "I'm riding Siu!!"

    "Damn. Siu is busting my balls today"

    The possibilities are endless.

    Hey! My name is Barron, sometimes they call me "Red".

    ...okay.


    Cool names.

    Yes, but then you'll be telling everyone that you're riding Sui and...um...well...perhaps you could name the bike Sui2.

    Um...hate to break it to you, but I've only mounted the Barron once and I didn't descend much of anything on him! Seriously, I'm pretrified of mountain biking. The bike was given to me by a fellow So Cal BF member (loveliest woman you could care to meet) and I've yet to even take it out on a trail!

    My first bike was an old man's comfort bike, a Trek Navigator 300. I never named it, but....

    When I finally went to a road bike, I rode it constantly. Then about 6 months later I decided to take the Navigator on my ride. It felt like a tractor compared to the road bike.

    Now, I lovingly refer to my old Trek Navigator as my "John Deere".

    The names of mine are all printed right on the seat tube by the manufacturer. Anything more and you need to get out more often.

    So says the owner of "Pimped". Tell me you didn't come up with that, the manufacturer did! C'mon man...this is Foo!!

    Specialized Stumpjumper - Red (it is the colour of the bike, but named after Red Fraggle for being kinda fearless)

    Cannondale R700 - Bullit (cause it's gunmetal grey & fast)

    Oh merider1 - if you lived at all close to me, I'd take you out mountain biking. GO RIDE! Your bike deserves better.

    Why? I'd love to take you to one of my favorite trail systems in Norcal if you're ever up here.


    One of my favorite trail sections ^^

    If the bike's name is what I say the most often when I'm riding it, its name is whatever the romanization of heavy breathing comes out to.

    Otherwise, it's just "the bike." I always feel like I should name bikes and cars and the like, but I never come up with anything. At least until they get worn out and start falling apart, then I call them "piece of ****."

    I've always named my computers, but that's just for ease of networking. I'm sitting on the bed with Spaceinvader right now, Vanguard (Pentium II tower) and Defender (Power Mac G4) collect dust in the closet, while Night Driver (Macintosh SE/30 with a ton of upgrades and accessories) awaits the day it can come off the shelf and have a desk to sit proudly upon. </nerd>

    Yeah, well my cat is a bengal, but I don't call him that!

    It's fun to name your personal belongings. Especially when it is something like a bike where there are probably a lot of other people that have the exact same thing. It makes it a bit more personal and gives you a real sense of ownership. I named my guitar and my former car, too! I get out plenty, too.

    Sigh...I'm skeered and chickan - singletracks have tree roots and rocks in them and mountain bikers think it "fun" and "thrilling" to go flying down them. I've yet to wrap my mind around it.

    Here, here...I've named all my cars. And the one I'm driving now I call Dirty Harry because I throw so much (bike)stuff in it that it looks like trash heap. Oh, and I get around plenty too.

    I've been trying to think of a name for my bike since I got her. I think I finally got a name for her. (A lot of which I own is named.) The three most important objects of mine: my fuji, Marie; my iBook G4, Beth; and my pool cue, The Warden.

Falling is a regular occurance, every trail ride I'm on at least one of us goes over the handlebars, it's not a big deal. Don't you ever get tired of being on "flat" ground?

    Okay, the bolded above is the EXACT crazy enthusiasm you mountain bikers have! NO! I do NOT want to fall and NO, I never get tired of being on "flat" ground.
