Do you name your bicycles? I have many friends who do. The name usually has a fun story behind it, like my friend’s touring bike, named Trigger after Roy Rogers famous horse. Or Big Red, an aptly named fully stocked red commuter bike. I tried for years to come up with a good name for my orange Trek, however, no matter how hard I tried, nothing seemed to fit. Over the years, some bikes have come and gone, like the 1984 black Schwinn, that I named Big Brother. And then there’s my new bike, named Fred, after my Dad’s middle name, Fredrick. Still to no avail I can’t come up with a good name for the Trek. The poor, abandoned and neglected Trek.
If you name your bikes, how do you decide what to call them?
