    MTB collective nouns

    I'm somewhat new to the sport and yesterday I participated in my first event, Tour De Felasco, here in north Florida. It was a lot of fun; I can't wait for my next one.
    But, in the course of covering the 50 miles I got to thinking about some collective nouns for the different brands of MTB's I saw in the tour at the rest/refuel stops.

    So, let's try these on for size: (BTW, I used a page from Wikipedia as a guide to create my list so I'm using their format)

    Trek
    tribe........A tribe of Treks
    tumult.....A tumult of Treks
    troupe.....A troupe of Treks

    Gary Fisher
    school.....A school of Gary Fishers
    fling.........A fling of Gary Fishers
    drift.........A drift of Gary Fishers

    Giant
    army.....An army of Giants
    stand.....A stand of Giants
    band......A band of Giants

    Cannondale
    cache.....A cache of Cannondales
    cloud......A cloud of Cannondales
    salvo......A salvo of Cannondales

    Specialized Stumpjumper
    smack....A smack of Stumpjumpers
    stand......A stand of Stumpjumpers
    leap........A leap of Stumpjumpers

    MTB's in general
    crash.....A crash of MTB's
    down.....A down of MTB's
    leap.......A leap of MTB's

    Take a shot of creating your own for your favorites; the Wiki page is at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lists_of_collective_nouns
    There's also a entertaining list to help get you thinking at: http://www.ojohaven.com/collectives/

    Have fun!
