Do you all name your bikes? I recall on another forum, a great number had names, just wondering what you all called yours.

Nope, not that creative I guess....refer to it as a "big black monster" sometimes, but not sure that counts...

the road bike is often refered to as "her" or "she who must be obeyed", the mountain bikes not named at all...

Bike Names

I thought that everyone named their bikes. My Guerciotti Ares is named "Aral" and my old Cannondale mtb is "Cannie". My favorite bike of all time was my De Rosa Planet that I referred to as "Rosie".

So it seems to be a good mix of people who name and don't name. I find that when I name an inanimate object it gets stolen, then I care about it and it hurts. I never named my jeep then when I got my window bashed and radio stolen I didn't feel bad for the jeep.

Cool names. Are there any special reasons you chose the names? Nothing seems to fit my bike...yet. Since most of you all are men, and name your bikes a female name, does that mean mine could be a male name?

I usually call my Schwinn "Schwinn" but lately I have posted it many places online as the "Minstrel Cycle" of The Bicycling Guitarist. I made up that pun back in the 1980s when some people called me a traveling minstrel.

from my web site: "I've been called a traveling minstrel. Does that make my Schwinn a minstrel cycle?" Someone in a songwriting forum added to the pun last year by saying "only if you play ragtime."
