Name That Bike

Need a name for a new bike...a name fitting for a fast and fun bike...the bike is bright yellow, it's a tandem, it's for randonneuring. Ideas?

Maybe "Malheur Jaune" if you have a twisted sense of humor?

So you got the tandem! Congratulations!!

Have you taken it out for a spin yet?


How about Yellow Submarine ... and you could get that song stuck in your brain on long rides.

"Yellow Submarine" was my first choice, actually, and is one reason the bike is yellow. However, there is some objection from the owners of a former Yellow Submarine...so I am exploring alternatives here.

And the bike is currently in the bike shop being built up, I haven't actually seen it yet. Hopefully, Saturday will be the maiden voyage.

Keep those names coming!

Semoline Pilchard...climbing up the Eiffel Tower...think I've heard that...

Anyway, the official name is: Yellow Submarine Two. Thank you very kindly for all the suggestions ("The Yellow Tandem" ranked right up there!). And it sails again tomorrow!

You sure got that right.

I saw the thread active and thought they had selected a name. And now I have to go back and wait longer.
