    Does anyone “name” their bikes?

    Yes: “Red Bike”. “Blue Bike” and “Other Blue Bike”.

    Simples 🙂

    My sister named my Kona ‘Trevor’ for some reason. She also has Bruce, Butch, Lance and Kyle. The mind boggles…
    And my Sovereign is always referred to as T’Evil rather than ‘the Evil’…

    When it misbehaves I call it several things that I can’t really write here but no name as such!

    My Surly 1×1 is known as Bob. Not sure why – it’s just a good solid, reliable name that fits the bike.

    It always concerns me when people refer to their bikes as ‘she’. It’s a worryingly small step from there to here

    Oh, and before you’re tempted to click through on the link in the story, sadly they’ve removed the page with the instructions.

    Not really – just ‘The Tarmac’, ‘The Genesis’, ‘The Langster’ and ‘The Bionicon’, or respectively ‘The Road Bike’, ‘The Singlespeed’, ‘The Fixie’ and ‘The Big Bike’.

    Cars have been ‘Lance’ cos it had a lot of power in a lightweight body and ‘the Polio’ because it was crippled.

    My bikes all have a name wrote on the frame,Giant Trance,Kona King,On One Inbred etc.It saves me doing that girly girl thing of giving them stupid girly names,which I happen to think is a very girly thing to do…. 8)
