What shall I name her?
« on: February 07, 2017, 07:40:30 PM »
Nearly there!

Now I need to name her. So far it's down to either Georgina (Famous Five adventurer) or Scout (I'm reading "To Kill a Mockingbird at the moment and also the green reminds me of cub-scout uniforms).
Come on everyone put your thinking caps on; more options required, please.

Most of my bikes have first names of "The" followed by the brand or model.

I made a really sincere attempt to name "The Nomad" Seymour (a pun...See-More), but so far it hasn't fully adhered.

I really must practice using it more. Seymour-SeeMore!  ;D

I like Scout, Janet. A good, solid name that beings Adventuring to mind.

So excited and happy for you!

All the best,

Dan.

Showing my age here, but 'Dr Cameron' would go well with Janet  ;)

I would add that on my RST I frequently switched between Panaracer Pasela Folding 26 x 1.75 and Marathon Supremes 26 x 1,6 ... and I preferred the Paselas for ride speed and comfort. 

Compass tyres [made by Panaracer] are an enhanced version of Paselas, but are much more expensive ... diminishing returns and all that.

Enjoy your new bike Janet.   ;D

Thanks guys for your kind sentiments.
I'm afraid that I am also of an age to remember Dr Finley's Casebook so I get the reference. I have to say I'm favoring 'Scout' at the moment. But I'm still open to alternatives.

Re tyres. I like Schwalbe Marathons (not the Plus). I've got them on two of my bikes and like them - no punctures! The new bike has Schwalbe Marathon Racers already on it. I'll give them a go and see how i like them.

The bikes stats are:-

Transmission : Thorn 104mm BCD 4 Arm Reversible Single Chainring 3/32 Inch - Black - 44T, Thorn 104/64 PCD Triple Crankset MK2 - Black - 160mm, KMC X1 Rohloff compatible 1/2 inch x 3/32 inch chain, Shimano UN55 73 mm Shell English Thread Sealed Cartridge Taper Bottom Bracket - 107 mm.
Finishing Kit: Brooks B17S Leather Saddle - Honey, Ergon GP1-L Anatomic Grips - Large - Black, Thorn AL7075 Narrow Flat MKII Handlebars - 5 Deg - 25.4mm Clamp - 550mm - Black, Kalloy AS-009 UNO 1 1/8 Inch Ahead Stem +17 Deg - 25.4mm Clamp - Black - 100mm, Humpert Patent Seat Post - Black - 300 x 27.2 mm.

Here's the mountain bike. She's called 'Enterprise' as I'm a Trekkie. Handmade in 531 ATB d/b Reynolds tubing, 531ST forks, 24 inch wheels, Araya Rims 24x1.75 but I have 1.50" tyres on at the moment which I like.  SunTour Mountech front and rear. Old Maddison Ladies L1 saddle. She was all red at one time but because she got so many scratches on her, I used Black Hemerite on the forks and rear! ???

And the Brompton is called Charlie. Haven't done anything to him since I got him early 2003/4. He needs a new chain because he keeps throwing it but new bike comes first and I will be completely skint(broke) when pay the final balance in 2 weeks time. Can't wait.

Janet
I've also got an aluminium Marin City Kentfield (hybrid), a Raliegh Weekender Lady (my old tourer), a Carrera TDF Limited Edition Women’s 2014 Road Bike and a full suspension(cheap) mountain bike soon to be put up for sale. Don't know if I've got photies of all these but I'll look.

Hi Janet,

How about "Scottie " for the new Bike?  You're going to get some stick about the mudguards on your red mountain bike  😂
