Generally the objects we personal develop into extra than simply issues. Bikes aren’t simply instruments or a tool, however for lots of us, a supply of pleasure and pleasure. 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. After we are preparing for a experience, she will say that she is taking Diana or Mari (her different highway bike) out and I do know which to prep and guarantee it’s prepared for the experience.
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 highway bike. He would seek advice from my bike as “the truck”. With fenders, racks and lights on it, it was definitely extra “truckish” then his svelte highway bike. I went out for a employees lunch experience at some point, and my bike definitely felt extra of a truck than both of their two light-weight highway bikes over the Berkeley hills.
I began calling it The Truck after that. Ultimately I received a lighter highway bike to experience and that bike grew to become “The Jag” – lighter, smoother, and extra dependable than the automotive.
(The “Jag” . Sorry for the non drive aspect picture, however I used to be 400 miles right into a 750 mile experience)
So here is the query – do you identify your bike and what kind of conference do you employ?
