Meeting my new bike for the first time

Specializedbike_1

I had a brief rendevouz with my new bike — a Specialized Sirrus Sport Disc 2006 Hybrid Bike — tonight. Gorgeous, isn’t she?

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to bring her home because I’ve asked the bike shop to ‘spec her up’ by putting on mudguards, a bottle holder and a new rack at the back and bolting in the quick-release wheels — and they were so busy when I called in after work tonight I have to wait for a mechanic to do the work tomorrow. This means I’ll be able to pick her up — and ride her home —  tomorrow night. I can’t wait!

In the meantime, I’ve got to think of a name for her. Any suggestions?

  1. Groovy bike!
    A male or female name? Boris? Ethel? Engelbert? Esmerelda? (I can only do daft and outdated.)
    Pity he/she isn’t yet ready, but I’m looking forward to reading about your first test-ride.

  2. Melody, she is gorgeous…
    Sailinghome, hmmm, interesting suggestion. Me & my shadow, eh?
    Appy L, come to think of it, I don’t know whether it should be male or female… I need to think about it a bit more…

  3. Awesome bike! Planning on getting one too! Debating whether to get a ’07 Sirrus Sport or a ’06 Sirrus Sport Disc. Love the specs on the yoru bike! But love the aesthetics on the 07 Sirrus Sport.
    Where are you from again?
