    OT: Naming your bikes

    Do you name your bikes, if so what are their names?

    Do what you want, but I don't think I can fully support the naming of bicycles.

    I haven't named my bikes (....yet), but people tend to refer to their bikes with female pronouns- just wondering if they name them as well.

    I think it personalizes them a little.

    "the Miyata"
    "the Road Bike"
    "the Volkscycle"

    etc, etc.

    The only female pronoun I use when referring to my bikes is the same as one would use for a female dog...

    I named my road bike Gretchin three days after I got it, but I have yet to name my Jamie Roy (probably because the model name is a name already).

    "the SS" for my singlespeed. As a Jew, I like the idea of riding the SS.
    "Sin-Wagon" for my Orbea, it is fast, and makes me want to break the law.
    "Crap-Wagon" my Motobecane-new style- frame bought of craigslist, set up as a single speed, it was supposed to replace "the SS" but it is the worst frame I have ever ridden, so "crap-wagon"
    Not too much to say here

    I almost got one from a local police auction that had a black frame with a fluorescent orange evidence sticker on the top tube, I was gonna clear coat over it and just call it "The Evidence".

    Would have been interesting if it'd been stolen and I reported it to the cops... "Yeah, someone just took the evidence and I'd like it back."

    Ditto. Goes for my car and truck as well except they are modified a bit. The truck is the big black ***** and the car is the little black *****. 'Cause they are black, dig? I don't know my motorbike well enough to give it name yet, but it will probably be the same.
