What to Name the Bike

One of my favorite books in my strange cat books collection is called What to Name the Cat (biggest hit is still probably Catflexing, though). I may have mentioned this previously here, but in the "Celebrity Cat Names" section WTNTC notes that Rita Mae Brown had one cat named Baby Jesus and another cat named Mister Malarky Yin Yang. Just brilliant.


I rode the new Surly in to campus this morning. I'm still waiting for word from the shop as to whether or not the correct saddle has arrived today, but if it has, I'll pick it up this evening and also see about a fork crown bolt so I can get the front fender installed, and at that point it will be totally ship-shape.

Regardless, it was a pleasant ride to campus. Much nicer to ride this bike over the bumpy sections as compared to Froinlavin. Froinlavin now needs a nice bath and to be put away for the winter. The roads this morning where ghostly white from all of the road salt, and poor Froinlavin is suffering the consequences of heavy use.

So, new bike names. I'd been pondering "The Surly Dog" as to be similar to "Scurvy Dog," but am now feeling kinda meh about that.

And I know, you'd probably like to see photos before making suggestions. Soon, I hope. In essence it's a black-framed Long Haul Trucker. You're going to laugh at the number of head tube spacers (6). Don't be jealous.
