It is alright when Pritchet is involved. I know he would let me ride Victoria as well.

I have decided to start calling my SLC "DANICA" today after 3 hours and 90km on her. She is my Raven Haired Rocket.

Not sure what I will be calling the English but I think it might be Elizabeth.

Classy :roll:

Bman, to other-country men, Elizabeth might be ok, but it seems a little 'normal' to me and honestly, I think the Queen is great but riding an Elizabeth would be so wrong :? How about "Rose"

Elizabeth is out also because the only other frameset I own (a red steel LeMond) is already named Elizabeth.

:banana:

This sexy black bitch could be Flo-Jo though.

Dude, that is now our problem.

I think she will be Nadine after my very first love which never happened as I was only 11 at the time.

Danica for the fast days and Nadine for the long slow days.

Nadine?

I think you need something that implies conventional yet innovative. It needs to be very refined, a name with a heritage, but definitely not a common one.
Victoria was already taken.
What about Veronica or or or better yet, here's a list:

See these are all the popular ones:
1801-1810

1.Mary
2.Elizabeth
3.Sarah
4.Nancy
5.Ann
6.Catherine
7.Margaret
8.Jane
9.Susan
10.Hannah
11.Rebecca
12.Martha
13.Lucy
14.Betty
15.Sally


1841-1850

1.Mary
2.Sarah
3.Elizabeth
4.Martha
5.Margaret
6.Ann
7.Emily
8.Catherine
9.Nancy
10.Ellen
11.Susan
12.Jane
13.Frances
14.Lucy
15.Harriet

1891-1900

1.Mary
2.Elizabeth
3.Ann
4.Helen
5.Margaret
6.Ellen
7.Catherine
8.Lily
9.Florence
10.Ada
11.Lou
12.Ethel
13.Emily
14.Ruth
15.Rose

But you need something more like:

Elinor maybe as I love Gone in 60 seconds and the Unicorn car in that movie was Elinor and it was a beast on the street but a bit tempermental. I hope this build is not but maybe that is one of the names I will go with.

Nadine - First love.
Elinor - Gone in 60 second speed machine.
Elizabeth - I know I said I would not ride the queen but I am not in England and there is some symbolism there. Plus I know a lot of Elizabeth's and they are pretty sexy.
