Please Help Me Name My Road Bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Please Help Me Name My Road Bike



Please help me name my Road Bike...it is a 2014 Kestrel Talon. My last bike was "Big Red"...lol, please help!

Current ideas are as follows:

- Black Dynamite (hilarious movie and fitting based on color scheme)
- Oreo (recommended)
- Shamu / Orca / Killer (recommended)

Thank you all in advance.

I'd call it the nutcracker since that's what's going to happen when you slide off that saddle.

Thanks, kv501. As reference, the saddle is a Tioga Spyder Twin Tail that I like a lot better than the Fizik Antares that it replaced.

How about Kestrel Talon?

You wouldn't have to change decals or anything.

In that case he can name her Lola. (Obscure reference to The Kinks.)

You realize then you're riding a dick, in tight lycra pants no less.



Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I guess it's a little weird... no wonder females get offended when I offer them to ride my Giant "Dick"...

"Mommy" may be most appropriate....or perhaps "Lost at Sea"....
