Your bike's (bikes' ;-)) Names

Just curious: what are your bikes’ names? How did you pick them?

I have a Bronco, a 20-year old Cannondale R600; dark blue; now permanently on the trainer after he threw me off.
I also have a Pegasus, a Specialized Amira.
My Arion, the Trek Procaliber 9.7 is what I rode at 24HOP and on whom I crashed (which ended the race). I will need to get a replacement frame for him unfortunately :cry: With the crash replacement discount I am now getting (just ordered yesterday) a Procaliber 9.8 SL.
The new bike will be Skyphios I think (another immortal horse from the Greek mythology). I can’t wait for him to get here!

I have a Scott CR-1, it’s named Scott.

My Norco Torrent HT1 is named Nymphy Nancy
My Mondraker Tracker RR is named Moody Monica

My Giant TCR is named Tasty Tina

Hmmm… Writing them all down like that, something has become all too obvious…

I need another bike…

I call my tri bike Mjolnir because I hammer the bike leg (float, hammer and jog instead of swim, bike, run) :hammer: :smile:
My road bike goes by the name of Gomez since my wife has almost identical bike called Morticia and both of them being black make a nice Adams family :wink:

My Grandma was called Winifred Dinnage. I used the money she left me in her will to buy it. It is over 20 years old now. One day I will replace it, but I can’t bring myself to do it

Our youngest son is almost 10. I can totally relate!

I’ve been known to compare my 2012 Felt B16 to Sir Paul McCartney. Well past its best, almost certainly due for retirement, but can still put on a damn good show when called on!

All my bikes have been named by my two young sons…so…

Road bike - Diego - named after tiger in Ice Age movies as it looked fast

Singlespeed- Frosty - as in frosty the snowman as it is white and is my ‘use and abuse’ bike to commute on in bad weather

TT bike - Treecko - named after some random Pokemon the boys liked and started with T for TT bike

CX bike - Silver fox - it’s silver and plays in the woods…also daddy’s hair isn’t as dark as it used to be!!!

My road, tri, and gravel bikes have not been named, but the fixie is the “Bumble Bee” (no, it’s not very creative).
