    i call my bike "my brother"
    its not very reliable, because the components are cheap, so as the frame and geometry
    it complains alot. wherever he is.. climbing, descending, speeding on the top gear, and hitting bumps.. the brake squeaks, the fork squeaks too, the rear derailler always get a "clack clack clack clack" sound when i hit the bumps and when in the top gear. sometimes, it doesn't sound right
    and when shifting.. you have always shift with your heart, not brutally or it wont change gears.

    all of that rubbishness but i love my bike. i treat it like my little brother and cant live without it

    ‘Stone Soup’ is my latest build. SS hardtail 27.5 mtb. Soma B-Side. So many people gave me parts that the name was a natural.
    My Univega Gran rally fixie conversion is named ‘Uno’ my Soma Double Cross is ‘Dos’
    My road bike is a Schwinn peloton that I’ve always called ‘SchwinG’ although since it’s a Reynolds 853 with Reynolds wheels I named it ‘Burt’ (RIP)
    The Cannondale with the Xtracycle Free Radicle bolt on it simply Xtradale.

    Got simple unofficial names according to me...
    - Meta (meta AM v4.2)
    - Hall (Hal5)
    - Etsy (Trek XC)
    - Cruiser (a junkyard beach cruiser)

    According to my wife...
    - Wife #3
    - Wife #2
    - Ex-wife
    - The Bike

    So apparently it's the last one she officially believes is a bike.
    AM -> 2018 Meta AM v4.2
    Trail -> 2017 Moto Hal5
    XC -> 2014 Trek Wahoo 29er HT

    2018 Diamondback Release 5C - Shreddpool (Spelled with double D's because who doesn't like Double D's)
    2017 Diamondback Haanjo Trail - Red Rocket (Named after a dogs erect penis, cause it's red. Also, it's kind of a speedy bike.)
    2016 RSD Mayor Fat Bike - Amber Lynn (named after famed porn star and size queen; seemed fitting since my fatty has huge 4.8" tires)

    Stone Soup is a GREAT name for that bike.

    The all white Pugsly in my avatar pick had been called Jet Puff (marshmallows) but now I usually call it Casper.

    Add a little dark blue & red bling and call it "Stay Puft."

    I haven't ridden much this summer so my bike's temporary nickname is "wet suit rack."

    I hope you don’t do that when both are in the same room. Can you imagine the hurt feelings and the embarrassment of the Giant Fathom / Dipshit?

    Oh yeah, I call my bike dipshit all of the time. I swear my Fathom tries to kill me every single time I take her out. This bike also reminds me how much I absolutely hate open dropout forks and frames.

    I will probably keep Dipshit around for when my little brother stops by and wants to try mountain biking.

    “my main steed”

    That term has officially been retired from the community.

    I've got Cara - She's a blue and red Pivot Switchblade and looks like Supergirl or Cara Danvers

    Clara - She's a bit of a Les, or a Pivot Les to be exact. Or Long Distance Clara the lorry driver out of one of my favourite kids TV shows.

    Payton is a Waltworks, so Walter Payton

    Then there's Dave GRoad, my only male bikes, he's a gravel grinding, drum playing, rock and roller or a Vielo V+1 in normal people's eyes.

    All my bikes have always had a name and each one is remembered...

    My old Vassago JabberWocky (circa 2007) is now the pub crawl and neighborhood ride is lovingly referred to as "Mrs. V".

    My Samsara SS (main ride) is just "Sami" (not very original).

    My 2004 Lemond Tete de Course classic road bike is just "the roadie".

    They are all loved.

    I don't name any of my vehicle/rides. But if I did my bike would probably be called "Mistress".

    Not for why you're probably thinking, but because she beats me silly and I keep coming back asking for more.

    I let my kids name my bikes. With me having veto power and only restrictions are female names. It feels odd riding something with a guy name.

    My old Pivot Mach 429 was Tessa.

    My Salsa Timberjack is Jacqueline.

    Just got my Ibis Mojo HD3, once my kids see it I'll see what they want to name her.

    That's the basis of mine all being females (with the exception of Dave GRoad, but come on, Dave Grohl!!) too!
