    Worst bike names.

    I have a great Litespeed mountain bike named a "Pisgah". After owning the bike I learned it was a National Park and a great place to ride Mountain Bikes near that factory.

    Everyone else I know thinks the name is something disgusting. Is this the worst bike name in the world?

    I have an old Ross ten speed, on the down tube they spelled bicycle "bicyele". Is that the worst spelling on a bike?

    I have a Giant Yukon SE, isn't an SUV a Yukon?

    My poor stolen bike. Hummer.

    I ride with a group, get initiated (riding with them, ahem) - so a stuntman shot and then get a nickname.



    Guess what my nickname is with that group.



    Takes a strong woman to carry that one off.

    Pretty much any bike named after a car. Except maybe in the old days when cars didnt have stupid names.

    My mountain bike is a Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo - not a bad name - just odd - doesn't exactly role off the tongue. It's evidently named after a trail in CA.

    My bikes are named blue bike, white bike, fixie, CX, mountain bike, shi$$y bike and Fuji. None of them are good enough to be called hummer. When I find a bike worthy of that name I will sell all the other bikes and ride that one exclusively.

    Hmmm... Pisgah is a great place to ride a mountain bike. Sounds like a good name for a mountain bike to me.

    Yukon is a province in Canada not an SUV, typically with connotations of an outdoorsy place (whether true or not), so naming a bike as well as an SUV after it makes sense, so I don't think that's a bad name for a bike, either.

    This is the "One"

    The name isn't bad, but it's the weirdest looking bike!

    On the last dirt session of the year my bike was aptly named 'F*cked' because I couldn't pedal through the last pack without the BB loosening.
