- What's the meaning behind your user name?
It's my nickname in real life.. short for youngster.. cos I'm the oldest Dave in our group of mates.. (by some way)..
Also it rhymes with junky and has a sort of pun based on the scandinavian pronounciation of the letter J. This is mildly amusing to my mates as I used to have an obscenely gluttonous drug habit.Posted 7 years agoJulianAMember
Well, my name is Julian and my surname begings with A… Not too imaginative!
I did get an offer to go ride with some ladies though, which was nice… (Didn't take them up on it though!)
I think that thisisnotaspoon is a reference to Magritte's 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe'…
One of my favourite user names on here is anagallis_arvensis – the scientific name of the flower better known as Scarlet Pimpernel.
Oh, and talkemada must have been a reference to a certain Spanish Inquisitor, but I'm not going to get into a discussion about that particular user!Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
I wonder why people see any need to hide behind a pseudonym?
Why not? What does it matter? It's a bit of fun, is all.Posted 7 years ago
Anyhoo, mine's a character from a book by one of my favourite authors, William Gibson. I would have chosen Chevette, a bike courier from a book of his called Virtual Light, but she's female, and I ain't, so I chose Count Zero from his book of the same name.trail_ratMember

in a previous life i was known as sideshow barbie or barbie for short …. on account of a bright pink dh bike and my dreadlocks looked akin to sideshow bobPosted 7 years agomcmoonterMember
Mc pronounced em cee is the prefix to my surname. At a Grundig World Cup race in the 80's the Italian race announcer listed those with the above prefix em cee Laren, em cee Leod, em cee Intosh. It was around the time MC Hammer. At the time we also produced a bike magazine called Moont.Posted 7 years ago
