    I suspect it has but as yet it hasn't seen fit to communicate it to me.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Nope. Neither of them. Never felt the need to name something that wouldn't come when I call it.

    And yes, my cat does come when I call it. Although I generally have to add the word "food".

    My bike has a socially unacceptable name that would cause a great uproar within the community of cyclists most likely causing me to be banned...............

    No. I don't name inanimate possessions. I'm not saying others shouldn't, just that I don't see the point myself.

    My first bike was a comfort bike, named Bullwinkle. My 7.5 is Rocky and my 2.1 is Johnny 5. My wife called her comfort bike Stella, her 7.3 Louisville. Her current 7.5 is Red, road bike is just Ruby (Specialized Ruby) and her mountain bike Excalibur (X-Cal). Bullwinkle, Stella and Louisville have moved on.

    since I don't have duplicate brands they just go by the brand name.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I generally don't name things. I suppose whenever I make a polo bike that actually fits me I might be tempted to name it, though I haven't even decided what frame I'll be using yet. If I actually do name it, then I suppose it wouldn't be unlikely for my Trek, Centurion, and GT to get names also.

    Laika Pilgrim....Laika like the Arcade Fire song in the Into the Wild soundtrack. Pilgrim like Billy Pilgrim in Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five. It's like a pilgrim. =]

    I never attach names to inanimate objects...sorry to say, bikes ARE inanimate objects . I do not wish to start a flame war (and I don't know why this subject always does) but, attaching human characteristics or traits to a machine (ie: names, or souls....anthropomorphism...) is IMHO anyway, stupid. I know folks will disagree and, to each his or her own, but I do not subscribe to such silliness.

    Mine are all named according to their color.
    Currently in the lineup:

    Blue Thunder - Pinarello
    Grey Goose - Mongoose
    Black Beauty - KHS
    Black Baron - Baron Triton
    Green Lantern - Trek
    Blue Bomber - Western Flyer

    Then there's one I haven't figured out what color it will wind up. It's got some factory orange on it but it's been repainted with a metallic magenta. Will likely strip and repaint again in red and then it will be dubbed:

    Red Rocker!
    1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1997 KHS Comp * 1990-ish Scapin * Lemond Buenos Aires Triple

    If you didn't want to start a flame war you wouldn't tell peoplke that what they do is stupid. Just sayin'.
