    what are your bike's nick names?

    that is, if you give your bikes names. if you don't, that's OK with me. this thread has probably been done before, but what the hey, i've been away for a while...

    my 'cross bike is the "reconnaissance lightning"...(like the p-38's they used to paint light blue and put cameras in the nose instead of fifties and the twenty mm...relatively lightweight and fast)

    the 29'er SS is simply "the pig" 'cause it feels like riding a three hundred pound sow on pavement...

    i've just christened the aluminum ibis hardtail "the camel" as in sopwith camel, 'cause it's old and kinda obsolete...but she can still dive bomb like a champ and turn on a dime.

    c'mon, do you have silly names for your bikes?

    I have the bike with no name.

    On the first part of the journey,
    I was looking at all the life.
    There were plants and birds. and rocks and things,
    There was sand and hills and rings.
    The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz,
    And the sky, with no clouds.
    The heat was hot, and the ground was dry,
    But the air was full of sound.

    I've been down the mountain on a bike with no name,
    It felt good to be out of the rain.
    On the mountain you can't remember its name,
    Cause there aint no one to take yer pain

    Mines is 'The Bat'

    That's because a friend's 2 year old kid ,when asked, could only pronounce it as Diamond Bat , actually it was more like Dammond Bat, it's not a name that stuck until recently mainly because of how it looks now and it never had a name before that.

    Yep...

    My bikes names:

    "The Turner" for my Turner
    "The Singlespeed" for my single speed
    "The Road Bike" for my road bike

    When I pick up my cross bike, I'll likely name it "The Cross Bike"

    Clever: that's how I roll.

    I have never understood why some like to give names to inanimate objects like cars and bikes. So no, I do not have any cute names for my bikes.

    When I got my bike, my kid threw a mister yuck sticker on it. I've stuck with it and hence the name because it is pure poison.

    Actually, I recant my earlier post. There is one name that I have...My son insisted upon a Kona Dew this spring. I frequently refer to it as "The Doober". That's just an inside joke between him and I though, and now I guess all of you are in on it.

    They don't have nicknames, but they are all my mistresses -

    My list of mistresses:
    Salsa Mamasita - Hot latina with big tires and wide hips. She likes to be rode hard and fast. I always end up on top with her.
    Haro Ally SS - Brunnette with blond highlights. Big tires and hard body. She works me hard.
    Kona Dawg Primo - Ugly and heavy, shes a dog, but always a fun ride.
    Felt Curbside - She's a whore. Can be found on street corners around town. Good for a quick fix.

    I usually refer to mine as Gringo. That was only natural, cuz it's white and I'm Hispanic. But sometimes on the trail it's "you stupid mother F'er!!". I predict the latter is a quite common nickname

    So true!

    Honestly, my bike and I are fighting right now so I pretty much call it a POS! When we get things worked out (tire problems) and we get over our disagreements, I will go back to calling it, "My Bike". However, it doesn't really matter which one I am talking about, she has to figure that out on her own.

    I've never had nicknames for my bikes, but I've now devised one. I've been away from my beloved MTB for months now, so I think it's my brain fulfilling some need for affection by naming my bike (a stealth black, Blur LTc).

    "Neutrino", because it is faster than light!

    Schoolbus!

    Titus Switchblade that sits so tall it feels like driving a schoolbus while sitting on top
    of it. ( at least thats how it felt when I built it up.)

    It's also my battlecry, so if you hear that shouted out on the trail it's just me and
    NOT an actual bus in the trails, and I'm having fun.
    Keep trying to do the awesomest thing you've ever done.

    The filing cabinet would be a fitting name based on the sound it makes. But seriously what is the purpose of naming some consumer goods you happen to own?

    I mean, who wants to give anything they own some character. That is so lame. I am going to go hide the logos on my bike with stickers that say bike on them. Because that is all it really is. You are such a non conformist that you are a conformist to the non conformers.

    Your powers of deduction are blinding. Furthermore, my previous comment did not concern the act of changing the physical appearance of a bike, or its original branding, in any way. I still wonder what sort of tangible extra utility one can derive from giving a nickname for their bike, coffee maker or microwave oven.

    You must not have seen the no buzz kill pic huh.

    It's about giving the bike a little personality which it seems you have none of.

    And for fun also, which sounds like you have very little of that either.

    My cannondale six13 is "the black beauty"
    my wahoo is "the fish"

    oh I almost forgot, the toaster I race from previous posts is "toastie"

    nicknames help you make it up hills

    My friend used to have a specialized hardrock that was like a dary grey brown I think. We called it thunderhorse from the show Metalocalypse.

    That bike got stolen, and since then no names equal or better then that have ever come up

    I have so much bikes that I use to call them differently depending on the circumstances... It varies from my baby to ****ing ***** with pig going on sometimes...

    But here's the list :

    My Yakuza (aka "my baby", "the pig", "freakin' badass bike") : Iron Horse Yakuza Aniki
    My GT (aka "XCR" or the blue one) : GT XCR 3000
    The Timberline : GT Timberline FS
    The SnowRider (aka "ryde" or "*****") : Custom built dual-suspension winter bike
    The GMC (aka the red one or my trail bike) : Dual suspension 80mm trail bike
    The black shiny one : Steel rigid Raleigh Summit
    The Tempest (aka my SS) : GT Tempest

    I also speak to my bikes, mostly to the one for the winter, when I open the garage door at 7 in the morning, snow all over the place, I tell her : "it's gonna be a good ride baby !"

    My Fisher is called "the GF".
    It keeps the ladies wondering just exactly whom I'm referring to. As in the one I rocked for a couple hours out in the woods into sweaty lather and then hosed down in the back yard afterwards And the one I spend most of my disposable income on.

    We had a simple system:
    the white bike
    the black bike (wifey's)
    the Nomad

    Then I bought a replacement for the white bike, which was black on black. It goes by "the stealth bike" or "Darth Niner"

    My buddy Mike rides a '92 Bridgestone MB2 known at the Twitchcycle for it's challenging handling characteristics.

    Cheers Skottspark :-)

    The General Lee is still going strong (and fast and long!), but is now joined by my new, Nicknameless, Santa Cruz Highball... any suggestions?

    I'd call the highball "smoothie" based on those carbon curves.

    Two rides into my new voodoo canzo, when asked by the builder how it rides, I responded
    "like riding on a stick of butter!"

    Hence First29er = Butter. Or the butterz for short

    Someone mentioned other appliances?

    I call my washing machine "The Washer"; the drying machine "The Dryer"; the toaster "The Toaster"; and the microwave "That stupid piece of sh*t", cos I still have no clue how to work it or what it's for...
    It's all Here. Now.

    XLSpearfish doesn't really have a nick name, but every time I take it out of the garage I say/sing - Ho Ho Ho Green Giant!
    Stumpjumper carbon 29er - Bosco (Mr T.) cause it's big black and has a little mohawk where the red stripes come together on the top tube.
