Bicycle Names

I name my bikes, usually for something wrong with them. Rusty, well, obvious. Lefty, it pulls to the left. Tiny, well, it's tiny. Some have more thoughtful names, like Phoenix, a bike I found in a ditch that was apparently thrown from a moving pickup. The fourth definition of the word Phoenix at this dictionary is a person or thing that has become renewed or restored after suffering calamity or apparent annihilation. Do you name your bikes?

What if you have a small, rusted bike that pulls left?  :)

I've never had a bike, but if I ever get one, I might call it "Spokes" or "Spokes-ee"
my old bike was dave, my new one herbert
How did those names come about? 

Since my last good mountain bike "Rip" got stolen, my dailyrider is "Cyclops" (while "Victor" aka "SilverEcho" has no road tax) and I'm keeping my beater mountain bike"Tabitha" rideable until I can fix up a bike I am probablyeither going to call "Frank" or "Oz", and giveTabitha away.
i just picked em randomly i am trying to think of a name for my longboard............

For long, complicated and utterly irrelevant reasons, all bicycles should be named after cattle.

Daisy, Ermintrude* etc.

*For some bizarre reason, the spell-checker says that should be peppermint. Maybe the spellchecker has an opinion on the naming of bicycles?

That's strange about the spell check. Hey, how do you make that little text?
Pairs of commas make subscript:
,,this,,
becomes this.

Whilst the up arrow thingy (shift 6) makes superscript:
^superscript^
Which looks like this.

Hmm... That's cool! I almost always wondered about that.
