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!
