    Coolest Maverick Name...?

    Well, I'll start the ball rolling... My new Durance is called "Medusa"

    Me likes...

    My old ML7 was called Iridescent, which I kinda liked, but most people thought was a little bit twee...

    So what's yours called?

    And who's got the coolest name?

    My Matic is named Tang - which is the stuff the astronauts used to drink in outer space. And if I want I could always add a "o" to its name and call it Tango!

    My Durance's name is "Centrifuge". I really didn't care for it, so I re-named her"Excaliber" ;
    but I bet there is a real Excaliber out there!

    Hahahahaha. Oh dear oh dear. Mine is named after a Greek Monster who could turn anyone to stone who looked at her, yours is named after the uber camp ex Baywatch star! Hahahaha. Sorry, very funny though... Perhaps you should sell it to a German, he's very big in Germany still I understand? Might fetch a premium cos of the name too! You could then get yourself a deal on a nice new one with a decent name

    I'm just hoping my Medusa doesn't quite turn out to be the hateful Monster that the Greek Myths made her out to be!

    Aspirant

    Durance -
    aspirant [ˈæspɪrənt əˈspaɪərənt]
    n
    a person who aspires, as to a high position
    adj
    aspiring or striving

    I guess it sums up my riding style.

    Weird name

    2007 Durance called Twonka - I have no idea where that name some from, it sounds like a made-up word, perhaps it means something to the boys at Maverick?? It wouldn't be a name I would use.

    Mine is called Rigsby.... Not being from North-American originally, I am not entirely sure where it comes from.... ;-) but I don't mind it.
    A climb is really just a flat piece of road that points up. A headwind is a climb that you can't see. So it's all flat road, really.

    I do not own a Mav frame (DUC32 & speedball, yes) but I've just gotta chime in here.

    I think that the Maverick "name the frame" serial ID is fantastic. Great personal touch from a great company.

    Too funny. Most, if not all, of the names listed above are great!

    No way, that's awesome!

    But is his cunning plan "As cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University?"

    It's mboy off STW by the way hughjayteens... Have to sort out a Mav ride somewhere soon!

    My ML7 is "Voyager". I really like this name & all that it implies. That bike has been passed on to my son. I replaced it with a Durance named "Shannon" . Huh, who is Shannon? Does anyone want to adopt a head badge so I can put in for a more imaginative companion collar?

    My ML8 is named Klingon - I am not a big Trekkie (but fear someone on the old Mav crew was) but I know those Klingon characters were pretty bad ass!

    theme?

    hard Ano Blue 7.5 named 'Inky', now running as SS.

    I have an ML7 named 'Blacker than Black' but goes by Blacky

    I am looking for a small ML8 in red to name Blinky.

    My dad handed me down his ML7 named Voyager and just recently I purchased my own Fast Blue Durance named Hindsight.....pretty bad to the bone

    That real tree paint-job is pretty crazy

    Wow, Realtree is sweet! I think the only thing that could make it better would be a matching DUC

    I did check with paul T a few years ago to see if I could get a DUC painted in camo but the answer was no....good news is it rides much better with the shorter forks
