The trail bike -- pgoat -- because she (is pgoat a he?) climbs like a goat.

The roadie -- UnsafeAlpine

Edit: Duplicates are ok nutshell explanation will be necessary to claim copyright to you're bike name.

I already named most of them. I have Charlotte the univega mixte, Vendetta the brompton, and Fred the crappy kent ultralite. They don't have last names though so someone should give them fooster last names. My Moulton Speed 4 is yet unnamed, so maybe I'll name it...uh...oh, I dunno, no one strikes me as Moulton-y among you foosters.

Name it after me. Nekohime. Or just Neko. Because we all know I'm the number one vector of folderitis here in foo.

This one oughta be named Wolfie. It looks fast and needs to be ridden a lot...by someone scary fast. So I rarely ride it Wolfie is inspiring me to HTFU.....




I used to call my faithful commuter "massala" for the way it regularly gouges my shins to a bloody pulp (Ben Hur fans will understand). For Foo purposes, I believe Fuzzy will do.




This one shall be called Sixtylampunsafecudaeasthilldoohicklegnome McGillicutty Just sayin'

I think he/she is a 49cm (I guess it's a 'she' now)

I counted up my mileage last year and i put so few miles on that bike I was very mad at myself.
