    Bike Names

    Do any of you folks name your bikes? If so, lets hear some bike names (and pictures of said bike) and perhaps a reason as to why you named it as such?

    I am still trying to name my silver Enduro... I just... don't have anything yet. The only thing I have so far is "Argento", which is Italian for silver and also means "the silvery one". I dunno though... ugh. Any help?

    Look at the pic you posted.

    Tilt your head slightly to the right and blur your vision...what do you see?

    I saw a whale tail.

    Totally!

    I have decided that m custom Reign is a "he", while buiding it. Ya know, burly, lots of green and black...

    Then, it took only one gnarly, fast descent and the name came naturally; simple and concise: The Animal.
    The bike rides, descends and sounds like an animal. I love it.

    Now, get outta my way.

    Sorry, just look at the frame only.

    Better?

    Maybe you could call it "Willie" ...you know, free willie? Then it could morph into your little willie (or big willie if that's a security issue for you) and the jokes would be endless. You and your dirty little willie could be seen romping through the forest all over town.

    OK, I just realised this is getting creepy.

    I'll be off now.

    My Treks name is Tilly...which is short for Matilda. It means "mighty in battle".
    Don't confuse me with facts, my mind's already made up.

    2 years????? So once a question is asked, it can never be asked again? What is your point exactly?

    And I have no name for my bikes, though if the tire jets jammed on rocks and I happen to fall over, I do assign it some expletives

    I used the search function and searched for both "Bike Names" and "Naming Bikes" and nothing similiar came up so I figured it'd be ok.

    My 04 Enduro was actually a warrantied 02 which was named both "Babe the Big Blue Bike" and "Old Blue", but I normally called her old blue. I sort've like Willie though.

    To me, it looks like one of those guitars that is shaped like a y. But then again, all full suspension bikes look that way. Ex: The most recent issue of Dirt Rag has a pic. of someone who turned a Trek Y bike into the y guitar.
    I don't know where you got a whale tail...

    Never thought about it until somebody asked me a few years ago what I had named it (the HT.)

    Trek 4900 WSD Alpha = AlphaBetty (like Alpha Male only female! )

    SC Blur = Steely San ('cause it's steel blue )

    HardRock Sport = never had a name, though Molly comes to mind due to the ChroMoly frame.

    I made the same question a while ago... a little less than a year or so... whats important is that U asked it and U need some opinions on the subject. and besides not everyone got to see the post 2 years ago nor mine. so here goes:
    these are my two girls... the cannondale is Camilla and the turner is Priscilla. I gave them girls names cuz I wouldnt feel comfortable hoping/mounting a bike with a dudes name.
    and i tried to come up with a name that is not common.
    how bout name it after an old girlfriend or a girl u had a crush with? that allways works.

    I just get a new bike and sell the old one before I have to think up a name. If I named them, then I would have to keep them.

    I think I'm going to name her Miriam, after one of the Prophets in the Bible. No I'm not super religious, just thought it matched up well as the bike is a Prophet.

    I always thought naming bikes was kinda silly so I never did it. My sycip was always "my Sycip" and my road bike was always "my road bike"... then I got a Maverick and they named it for my... talk about silly. It's a her and her name is Fushia... Of all of the cool names that Maverick has put out and I get Fushia!
    She's a dirty girl
