Never been much on naming bikes, but we decided to name our new tandem, Suneudokeo, it's Greek for "having pleasure together". R&J

My dear sweet wife refers to my carbon bike as "Precious" in a somewhat derogatory manner. She hasn't named the old hybrid, the 1973 Schwinn Varsity or the new Ti bike. Sometimes the Ti bike is referred to as my Ti Baby.

Off road bike... lugged, butted Reynolds 531, 700c wheels


My touring bike


I built these frames back in 1992. The guys at the LBS said "Chas. friends don't let friends ride NEON".

I kept saying "It's not NEON! It's DayGlo!"

I have a big bicycle family... some even have proper names.

Forrest, my custom 20... named so because he came with a sticker that had his name on it.

Reg is my 1955 Raleigh Lenton, Reg Harris Road model.

Edith is my 1957 Peugeot PLX8 because she is a grand dame.

The rest go by Cooper, Moulden, Proctor, Garlatti, Blizzard, Kona, Raleigh (insert models and years), R20, Pugsley, Norco, Extrabike, Cascade, Dawes, Moulton 1, Moulton 2, Dawes, and The Beater Bike.

My daughters named their bicycles Saffy and Basil... proper names for British bicycles.

I own a pair of Cioccs. I call my classic Ciocc San Cristobal "Ciocc", but I refer to my recently acquired Ciocc Titan as "Beer Is Waiting" (engraved on my headset cap).

Well, I recently joined up with Strava and they insisted that I actually have a name for my bike. Colnago Master X-Light sounded kind of blasť, so I chose "The Italian Job"

If I were forced to name my bike like you were, I'd have to name it Mikey's Bikey.

My '75 Fuji S-10S is simply 'the Fuji' or 'the bike'. The ONLY bike I'll never part with.

The '91 Schwinn Woodlands I use solely at the dragstrip is 'Ugly' because it is. Early 90's Miami Vice inspired Aqua green with black splatter/stringy paint effect finished off with retro pink decals combined with rusty racks front and rear and a rusty chain. That bike is so ugly that nobody would even think about stealing it!

Byron is the pet name for my city bike. I cam by the name in a different kind of way,


the whole story is here
.

The others who get major mileage came with "Sam" and "The Hunq" already attached so I was relieved the burden of dealing with my imagination.
Whew!
