    If only because it would make me laugh, and also I think it might help us all take things a bit less seriously.

    I hadn't come across it before that BBC4 documentary the other night, but I've been amusing myself every since by using it my head since.

    eg. "Trek unveil their new range of all-mountain dandyhorses".
    "My downhill dandyhorse is much better than yours"
    etc.

    🙂

    'Ordinary' sounds suitably mundane, too.

    would stable then be an acceptable collective noun?

    /me imagines all the armoured up DHers on their 8in+ fullsuss Dandyhorses.

    reminds me – saw one of those little kiddies pedal-less dandyhorse things the other day that actually had working suspension! (OK it was just a hinge with some polymer damping, but it was real, not like kiddies bikes with fake springs to make them look like a FS)

    Yep, 'steed' would probably be slightly less offensive to some as well.

    I came to work by motordandyhorse this morning.

    I couldn't show my face at school because my sister was the local dandyhorse and all my mates had had her.

    I like this!

    I say chaps what wood should I choose for the wheels of my dandyhorse. It must be able to cope with long gravel driveways and the occasional collision with a peasant.

    This is a max wicked sick dandyhorse. It's a Reliance Boomerang and it's done heaps of maximum extreme stunts. I have mostly done stunts on this dandyhorse since forever. Once I did a boom gnarly stunt trick on it and a girl got pregnant just by watching my extremeness to the maxxxx. Some details about sickmax dandyhorse: Comes with everything you see including: TOPS AS SUSPENSION REAR FORKS!! 2 x wheels 1 x seat I will even thrown my sick dandyhorseing name for FREE – Wicked Styx. Has minor surface rust on handlebars and front forks (easily removed). More rust on rear forks (as shown in pics). Tyres hold air but are pretty old. Basically, it's an old dandyhorse, but it's radness is still 100% in tact. Tricks I have done on this dandyhorse: Endos – 234. Sick Wheelies – 687. Skids – 143,000. Bunny Hops – 2 (Bunny Hops are g*y and my brother dared me to do them, which I did because I'm Rad to the power of Sick). Flipouts – 28. Basically if you buy this dandyhorse you will instantly become a member to every club that was ever invented, worldwide, because you will be awesome. Pick up from Richmond in Melbourne. Throw your hands in the air like you just don't mind.

    would this make 29ers a "carthorse"??

    …anything but 'steed'! Maybe STW Towers could add a filter to change 'steed' to 'dandyhorse' – they've done similar before in years gone by.

    A good programme but strange that the author did not seem to give credit to Kirkpatrick McMillan (recognised inventor of the bike) or Robert Thomson (inventor of the pneumatic tyre).

    Nope they would be refered to as a "Shirehorse", surely a Cargo bike is a “Carthorse”..
    Your BMX is now know as a "Pony", and your Road bike become known as a “Darkhorse”…

    Just off to the Alps tomorrow, so they probably won't have heard about the new standard yet.

    Every time I see another rider out on a bike, I'll say "Oh, that's a fine ol' dandyhorse you got there."

    It will catch on fairly quick I reckon.

    if we invented a new word on this forum and used it regularly, how long would it take before it appeared in print?

    I'd like to nominate Chad. Not the country, never been there. When I worked in an LBS a student we described poor quality stuff as Chad, as in Chad Valley toy shop quality.
