    A post on here made me wonder why on earth Cube decided to call their road bike the “Agree”, is it the name of a big hill in Germany or something?

    Also see Mondraker with “Foxy”, which just makes me think of Glacier Mints.

    Any more for any more?

    That Kona one that takes up the whole top tube.

    The “Checker Pig Pig Patrol Lady ”

    What do I win?

    I was going to say anything from Cove, but “Checkerpig” wins by a mile.

    Cos “Reef Triggerfish” would be weird. 😕

    Trek Slash surely.

    Honourable mention to Cannondale Trigger as well.

    Both could have done with just a little bit more research into UK isms IMO.

    Good one.

    The Kona is deliberately wacky though, eh?

    I was thinking more of inexplicably bizarre names – like the checker pig I guess.

    This one makes me chuckle, the ‘Orange Excellent Innergy’ (it’s not orange) by Gazelle

    The ibis guys have got to be up there, not only do they have the ibis tranny but their cross bike, the hakkalugi, is pure genius. its usually exactly what you should be doing in a cx race/ride!

    Carrera used to make a bike called a “Bugaboo” around 2003ish.

    Looked very similar to a specialized epic, with a low ratio shock thing. Only it was in a horrible snot green.

    Just got myself a Stinky, what does it mean in Spanish?
    [EDIT] Just seen the above, and I’m planning a trip to Portugal next year…

    I have no idea what ftfy means but that’ll be the one.

    ‘Kona’ in Portuguese is a rude word for lady parts

    So it would be like riding around in the this country with “Boobies” written on my downtube?

    Err yeah, kind of, think lower, and a more offensive word.

    Made particularly grim with the word ‘Stinky’ written near it.

    Mods, I’m sorry, I’m bored. If this isnt appropriate, delete away…
