Generally the objects we personal grow to be extra than simply issues. Bikes aren’t simply instruments or a tool, however for lots of us, a supply of pleasure and delight. When my spouse purchased a Go Hunter body this spring, she named the bike Diana, after the Roman goddess of the hunt.
It makes it straightforward when she has names for bikes. Once we are preparing for a journey, she will say that she is taking Diana or Mari (her different street bike) out and I do know which to prep and guarantee it’s prepared for the journey.
Again after I labored for GU in 2007/2008, I rode my touring/brevet/sportif/solely bike to work most days. My boss there had a really good Lightspeed street bike. He would confer with my bike as “the truck”. With fenders, racks and lights on it, it was actually extra “truckish” then his svelte street bike. I went out for a employees lunch journey in the future, and my bike actually felt extra of a truck than both of their two light-weight street bikes over the Berkeley hills.
I began calling it The Truck after that. Finally I received a lighter street bike to journey and that bike grew to become “The Jag” – lighter, smoother, and extra dependable than the automobile.
(The “Jag” . Sorry for the non drive aspect picture, however I used to be 400 miles right into a 750 mile journey)
So here is the query – do you title your bike and what kind of conference do you utilize?
