'Nuther Poll - What's your bike's name? Male or female?(6 posts)

'Nuther Poll - What's your bike's name? Male or female?BowWow

Until the name is made known to me I've been calling my Prodigy "Sir Bike," a pun on a pun (Cervelo="brain bike"), even though I know it's a "she". I know there are better/more creative names than this. Whatcha got?

Oh, the Centurion is affectionately (though not very creatively) known as "The Beat," short for "beater," and a bit punny 'cause it's beet red...

Neither gender, but a phrase from Laguna Indian legend.

I always thought the cruiser was male, but the day after it first saw its new stablemate, the vintage Paramount, it started showing signs of jealously and heartbreak that have made me believe it may actually be female.

My Colnago is Il Signore.
My '80's steel Somec is Angelica Turbo.
Whenever I used to encounter a Centurion on the road, I'd bang my chest with my right fist Roman Style and say in my deepest voice, "Centurion!" Back in the '70's it seemed every other bike on the road was a Centurion. My chest used to get exceedingly sore. I'd get my share of disgusted looks, too.
