Need the creative help of FOO!

I am in the process of taking over a bike rental business and expanding it into a full bike shop. I need help coming up with a good name.

Background: Shop is in Canal Fulton Ohio. 20 ft from the stark county bike trail, and 100 ft from the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath trail. Will be initially rental, repair, used bikes, and refreshments.

Link for the Canoe Livery with details of the rentals (2nd pic on the right is my building).:

http://www.cfcanoe.com/

It would also be cool if the name could include "Draisine" or a reference to "Baron Karl Christian Ludwig Drais von Sauerbronn" as I am a direct decendent.

So foo lets see what ya got!

Baron Karl Christian Ludwig Drais von Sauerbronn's 2nd Cousins Bike Shop and Rental Emporium, home of the Draisine Smoothie, just one sip and you will say "Hey, I never knew Draisine could taste this good!"

Adding Baron von Lichtenstein will only confuse the public and make you look amateur, sorry.

"The Baron's Bikes"

Hang a red tricycle off the front, looking like it's flying, maybe throw a Snoopy doll on it.

I still favor place names for small shops.

You really should show a little more taste than that I think, it being a quaint little town. Perhaps "Titties and Gears".

My suggestion:
Baron Karl Christian Ludwig Drais von Sauerbronn's 2nd Cousins Bike Shop and Rental Emporium, home of the Draisine Smoothie, just one sip and you will say "Hey, I never knew Draisine could taste this good!"

You will be a millionaire.

You know you're a bike geek when you know what a Draisine is, Bike shop.
