Several months ago, I did get someTHING that is a big part of my life. I spend a lot of time with it. We hang out together. We train together. We eat and drink together. Although it sleeps in the other room, we have a close bond as we both look toward finishing an Ironman on August 25 together.
It's my "new" bike!
I searched for what seemed like forever to find just the right one. Ebay, Craigslist, Slowtwitch...I looked EVERYWHERE! Finally, I knew exactly what I wanted. I have had a Felt road bike for a long time, so I was going to go with a Felt. Their two top models are the DA and the B2. Both have this really cool Bayonet headset that moves with the front fork. Of course, that HAS to make you faster, right? So, after searching for months, I found this sweet ride! Yay! The only problem was, it was in Seattle, Washington. Plus, it was on Craigslist, so I wouldn't be covered by any security from Ebay or anything else. After emailing the guy selling this bike, we talked on the phone and skyped, and both of us felt a lot better about the transaction. He had his buddy box it up and ship it off to me. A week later, it got here! I was more excited than a kid on his first day of school. Immediately, I dropped everything to unbox it and put it all together. Nothing was more important than getting my bike together!
Here are the details:
- 2009 Felt B2 Pro 54cm
- Dura-Ace Components
- Fulcrum Racing 5 Wheels
- Made to go FAST!!!
There is just one problem...it doesn't have a name! And that's where I need your help. Sure, I've got some good name ideas for this bike, but I want to have a bigger pool to choose from, and I thought we could have some fun while we are at it.
A while back, I contacted YikesID about giving me some of their products to give away in a blog contest. They make road id's just like Road ID, and they were really cool about it! Not only did they give me and Jennifer a YikesID for free, but they will give away FOUR more id's to winners of this contest! They really are a great company that is focused on their customers.
Come up with a name for my new bike and leave it in a comment. That's it. You can give me as many names as you want. The more names I get to choose from, the better! Now, here's where this contest gets completely subjective. I will choose the top four names that I like (it's MY bike, right?), and the people that suggested those names will be the winner. Now, I know that some of you don't participate in contests because you already have the prize and don't want to win it while someone else needs it more. I respect that, but I want your names, too, so in your comment, just tell me that you don't want to be a part of the contest. Got it?
So put your creative name minds to work and give me your best shot!
