    Default Name My New Bike Pointless Prize

    I brought home a new bike yesterday, yay! I'm replacing my 6-month old Pinky Tuscadero, a Jamis Renegade Exploit, who was run over by a cement mixer. Pinky's replacement is the same exact bike (model/year/specs) and I need to name her. Suggestions welcome and if I choose your suggested name, you win the pointless prize. And please, no Bikey McBike Face.

    Pics of Pinky and "She who shall be named" are here: https://www.strava.com/activities/1362445182
    And the Strava or it didn't happen evidence of Pinky's demise are here: https://www.strava.com/activities/1351638130

    FYI, my other bikes are Shirley, the trusted dependable hybrid and Laverne, the fun and just a little crazy CX bike.

    Entries for this pointless prize end 1/31/18.

    Oh, and big kudos to Bikenetic who found Pinky's replacement for me super fast!

    It's clear you like to name bikes after legendary duos. You had Pinky. Now you have the Brain.

    Pharfignewton

    According to Wikipedia, Pinky falls in love with Pharfignewton, who is a racing mare. So pretty fitting for a bike, and keeps with your Pinky theme

    Plus it's slightly less obvious of a name than "The Brain"...

    Apparently it's a play on that...



    "Phar Fignewton is a parody "Fahrvergnügen", which, in the 1990's, was the advertising slogan for Volkswagen."

    Since you already have a Shirley, I would suggest "Highway" and together they can constantly remind you of that lovely spot on the 4MRT.

    Or, the more obvious "Don't Call Me Shirley"

    I'm going with the LaVerne and Shirley theme and suggesting Squiggy.

    Komorebi has the same bike and I tried to convince her to name it Lorenzo Llamas since he was in the tv show Renegade. She declined the suggestion quite vociferously, so Lorenzo Llamas is still available.

    No, no, no. This bike is definitely a Lenny. Later, you can get a recumbent and call that Squiggy.
