    During a ride with a group of people earlyer, I speaked with someperson who gave the bicycle they are riding the name esperance (or something) . I don't know the reasons for this interesting name but I think it's cool to give it a name, perhaps I will begin to call mine somename.

    Has anyone else given a name to your bicycle? what's the name if you had?

    I thought it was normal to name bikes...[​IMG] Mind you, I even name my car [​IMG]

    My training bike is called 'Flash' .. .its purple, old and very funky(at least I think so)....

    My track bike is called 'Hippo' .. its what I feel like when im on it!!! haha - well that and its a Hillbrick, so seemed to fit well

    As for my race bike...I have been stuck for almost a year on what to call it. Might just have to get a new one to solve that problem...[​IMG]

    My bikey has a first name, it's B-I-K-E-Y;
    MY bikey has a second name , it's:
    RidleyshimanoFSAritcheyWTBultegraSRAMtruvativeForcey105hurtsmyrear :p

    You kidding me ? There's so much stuff with names on my bike there isn't any room for a personality :eek: :rolleyes: It's skitzophrenic - I'd like to strip it all down and paint it black. With one reflector hanging from the seat so I don't get hit.

    Then I could call it......

    The Midnight Rider.....:cool: and I could sing Allman Brother's Songs while riding. And wear a mask. :D

    Mine doesn't have a name. But I'd like to play along. Let's see.

    How about Bullet? I'm not trying to say that I'm fast. I just like that name.

    Could it be the spanish word ESPERANZA, what you understood to be the name of the guy's bike? That would be HOPE then - hope to ever get to his destination for instance?!? (Joke).
    To answer your second question: Yes, I christened my new heavy metal baby (lugged steel that is) SPURTSTER with good hope to please me well in that respect!
