I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    You got 21/22 correct!

    The one I got wrong surprised me, so I just Googled it; there was a model called that, so it’s 22/22. I’m a sad, sad bike nerd.

    15 – poor. Thought I’d selected “we made it up” too often, so guessed instead on some. A mistake!

    The answer to the “Rattler” question is wrong, a quick bit of Googling reveals a BSO with one of those brands on it. And UK readers might not know that “butte” is pronounced to rhyme with “newt”, so the marketing team responsible for that one probably still kept their jobs. That aside, bike names are generally pretty dire, aren’t they?

    19 for me, I got the Butte one wrong. Although when I do own a bike company, I’m going to have a model called the Sisyphus.

    Just 11!
    I’m happy that this is proof that I spend more time riding my bike than reading about them.
    I’m slightly disappointed as I thought I was a bit of a bike geek.😀

    Yeah, I resemble that accusation. If I spent as much time riding as reading about bikes then I’d be a contender.
    I could’ve been somebody, I tells ya!

    BRIAN. That’d be a good name for a bike…solid and dependable. You’d have to wear a sensible jumper on it though, something subtle.

    11 for me but if the Johnson was made by one of those brands it would have had a whole other meaning in America

    13 but OK with that. Most were from brands I have basically no interest in.
