Whats your bikes name?

Most of us do it, I dont think we all know why if we do.

If you've named your bike, what did you name it and why?

Is it a boy or girl? The tendency is girl round these parts, what do you think it should be?

Does your bike not have a name? Think its dumb?

Weigh in.



I called my bike Vina, I drank two bottles of fat b@stard wine when I built her, and her bar ends are corked because of it.

[anime reference]So far...

Unit 0
Unit 1
Unit 2

I'm still undecided what nomenclature to use for the two unbuilt frames i have in the closet... One is orange and the other is gold so i'm not sure if they'd be able to properly continue the trend.

So the colors of your built bikes are blue, purple, and red?

Heh heh, we've got a bunch of anime-named bikes on here!

I was gonna name my bike Superman (it's a Kent Ultralite) but then it doesn't fly high, isn't faster than a speeding bullet, isn't bulletproof, etc...

I call my Trek 1500 "Arwen" from Lord of the Rings. There's something "elf-ish" about that bike....

I never can get myself to name stuff. I know it is popular, but I don't think of names when I look at my computer, bike, etc. Must be a mental weakness or lack of imagination on my part.

My commuter/distance bike (Surly X-Check) is named Sleipnir.

My fixed gear (PDG Series-5) is called Japanamount!, and yes, the exclamation point is part of the name.
