    I like to keep it simple. The blue one and the white one.
    Our cat is called cat.

    I had a Beast & have a “Princess of Darkness” – I shorten that to Princess when we are alone.
    and two others that are just bikes. 🙂

    Yeti Big Top – The Bearded Lady

    and all my mates seem to do the same, Gina, Tracey and Betty – an Alpine 160, Tracer and SB66 respectively

    My wife and her family name their cars so when we got together somehow my bikes and cars ended up with names.

    In my house there lives Dylan (road), Jack (Mtb) and Dennis (CX) and we drive around in Seth (octavia) and Sir Edmund (Yeti)

    It’s kind of become normal now 🙂

    I name everything apart from my bikes…

    giving human names to inanimate objects is daft.

    ^^^What he said. As such my citybike is called “Number Six” ‘cos it a bit sleek and totally not a human.

    Queen Anne, Betty Ribble, Surly Shirley and, err, Stumpy all reside in my garage and/or the back room.
    Anne and Betty were so named so I could remember which one was A and B on my old cateye computer because of the different wheel sizes. It caught on from there.

    all of my bikes are called jessie after my nan. she left me some money in her will years ago to buy my first ever new bike as i’d always had second hand bikes as a kid.

    Don’t really name them. If people ask I give them the name of the person who helped me build them.

    Previous bike was called Duncan – On-One 456
    Current bike is called Colin – Salsa Horsethief
