    Ah... I cracked my old ML8 frame after 7k+ miles / 11k km and I got a brand new replacement frame from Ethan a couple of months ago. He let me pick the name and called it Marsupilami from the French comics of the same name.



    I had the Marsupilami painted on my old Enduro racing helmet (from when I used to race Enduro - motorcycles - competitively. That's what people who were following me saw (that helmet was retire after saving my head many times....).

    Ego - ML-7

    I missed this thread somehow - shows how often I show my face round here. Anyway, my 2004 black ano ML-7 is called 'Ego' - mostly these days it's a 24-hour race bike, so it seems kind of appropriate. Still a great ride and still going fast.

    My mate bought an identical frame at the same time and that was called 'Debt'.

    Oh, and the bike that sold me on Mavericks originally was a Reposado that Guy Kesteven of the UK magazine Maximum Mountain Bike - I think it was Maximum - had as a long-term test bike. I borrowed it for a couple of weeks and was just blown away by how quick it was. It was called Ozzy.

    After Guy had finished with it, it went back to Sideways and was converted into an ML-7 with a new shock and eBayed - still said Ozzy - REPO on the badge though. Was apparently stolen a year or so back according to a thread on STW.

    The questions is ... who and how chosen these names ???
    My guess is after work at the Mav shop, the guys got together with the girls, they would throw down a few double IPA's at the local brew pub and then spew these sometimes cool, sometimes lame and sometimes obscure names ?

    It makes perfect sense after a few beers, it is Wally Wonka's Tonka lol.
    I took 'bike name theory' in collage lol actually it means 'Buffalo' in Lakota Indian

    Poor "Fang" (USA-made ML7), sits in my backroom while I ride "Belladonna" (ML7.5). Still, I can't sell Fang. Too cool. Need to get it built back up for my smoother trails...with the build I have on it, it's more spritely than Bella.

    If I get my ML7, I'd name it MonoLink Zeven or The Deus, Just because i'm a Dutchie and I like Deus Ex.

    EDIT: Scratch that, I'm going to name it Titan or Helios, the AI's you can merge with in Deus Ex: Project 2027 and in the vanilla Deus Ex, What sounds better in your opinon guys?

    Unless you are getting a custom frame from Ethan, you don't pick the name - it is etched into the headbadge at the time the frame was assembled. And older models also have the "born" date.

    In essence, all Mavericks are adopted.

    Not sure what's on the HT badge, but I probably can get it ingraved with a Dremel and A LOT OF patience.

    Some great (and some not so great) names here, I've always liked the name on my 05 ML7 which is Arachnid, seems to suit the dark n moody anodised matt black paint. Doesn't get ridden much these days but might have to get it out this wkend for a blast!

    Great names! I'm a bit envious. My Durance is called "Sram". Probably the lamest one ever. Thinking of changing it to "Srambo"

    My ML7.3, born in May 2005 is called Northrop after a great aircraft manufacturer.

    Appropriately, it's a real flyer and certainly gets off the ground!
