    I decided to personalize my Kona with a name. Anyone else name their rides?

    I call my Kona, "Kona". Actually, mine has so many names (Hei Hei, King Kahuna) plastered all over it, I'm thinking about removing some of them. But, no, I haven't named any of my bikes other than what they are labeled.

    "$#@%#% Bike!" Is a frequent one....



    Seriously though, I name my bass guitars and all my boats have had names....but really never a bike. It is always "My Schwinn LeTour", "My Rainier" or whatever the model is called. Well, except for my current Rincon. That one frequently is called "The ill - tempered, Zebra striped bike"....
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    I have always named my bikes something embarrassing like "Schwinn Le Tour". It keeps them humble.

    My bike is called "The Octagon".

    My front wheel is James Westfall and rear wheel is Dr. Kenneth Noisewater. If you righteous trails play your cards right, you might just get to meet the whole gang.

    I call my bike a piece of sh*t
    when it breaks down. Does that

    I haven't named my bike yet. We are still getting to know each other.


    Right now I call it broken.

    My rig has a custom headset top cap that has my user name on it.

    But I commonly refer to my bike as "my other, other woman". My first "other woman" is my truck.

    My bike has many names. The most frequently used are...
    Gary (Guess why )
    My precioussssss...
    Heavy cow. (usually on ascends)
    Worthless piece of cr*p. (when something breaks)

    There are other names but they aren't that common.

    I've owned maybe dozens of bikes, but my current bike, a Yeti SB-66 carbon, is the first one I've named, and it's called "Socks" which is short for "Tube Socks and Super Glue". My new DH bike (which is currently being built) shall be dubbed "Teh Bruiser" I think, as that seems like a suitable moniker AND it'll be a matte black and ano blue color scheme.
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    Yeah sure, red bike, blue bike, orange bike, purple bike

    Going to have a problem next week when my 2nd orange bike arrives. Never thought about that until just now.

    My Kona has a couple names: if just a quick reference, it's just "the Kona"; in conversation, it's "Dead Sexay". (Oh -- when I'm talking TO it, it's "Baby"....)

    I named mine "satan"...it's a dark bike...so the name kinda fit...and I like to recall when the church lady says it: Satan?..and then it echoes.

    that is why satan rules...I was talking about the bike ..not my allegiance to the dark overlord of the underworld....

    As a new rider and a Christian, I cannot in good conscience post the names that my bike has gone by over the last month. Oh, the hurtful things we say to the ones we love...

    Not black anymore

    I have two 2010 Kona Hoss mountain bikes. I hate black bikes so I decided to have both "repainted" . I found a powder coater who did an outstanding job and the color I chose for the first bike was orange and the other bike is in the shop as we speak, with a gloss white.

    Sorry, my context for a LeTour is more like 1978. They were different then. Heavy as fracking lead. Like 40 pounds. Dual brake levers, and steel frames with fillet welds everywhere, and steel cranks, steel derailleurs, etc..

    For whatever reason, I've become obsessed with calling my bike Reginald Poofter, which is a Steve Carell joke from the Office.

    My 2004 Schwinn Frontier FS is named MIDAS due to his gold paintjob.
    And my Motobecane FS Elite is name Blue Thunda with his sexy dark Blue paint, blue platform pedals, and maybe in the future a blue saddle, handlebar grips and blue tires

    I name my cars and motorcycles, but have never named a bicycle until my latest. I named her Anita Blake. She is a Necromancer from some trash books by Laurell K. Hamilton I used to read.

    I haven't named any of my MTBs. But when I bought my first "starter" motorcycle I named it Melanie. Melanie was everyone's "starter" girlfriend in middle school.
