I was thinking about naming my uni (kinda like people used to name thir swords back in the day).I’m just wondering if anyone has given a nice nickname to their ride(s).
I called my old muni “Mr. Beefy”. I sometimes call my current muni “Gazzilla”.
My muni is currently known as Guinness Mojo because I have the logo from a can of Guinness strapped to it.
I called my 20’ Juggleart Unicycle “Silver Spur”. But the Others I got haven’t got nicknames just yet. It’ll come.
Re: Anybody Have a Nickname for Your Uni?
my wife came up with a generic name for all unis;
she calls them “yop-yop”
(because of the strange nature of the movement)
so : “where have you been yop-yoping today?”
“go and wash your yop-yop with the garden hose”
My Coker is named “Mirza” because , here, all cockers
(I mean the dogs) are called “Mirza” -I apologize to all of you whose first name is Mirza-
Re: Anybody Have a Nickname for Your Uni?
I call my Coker Grendel. Christa called it the Great Killer the day it
killed it’s second squirrel, and on subsequent
Triples: 8 (6-10) 55%-65% or 7 (5-9) 65%-70% or 6 (4-8) 70%-75% or 5
(3-7) 80%-85% 90%+: 3 (2-5) doubles or 7 (4-10) singles
So far it’s just, “the wheel”. I know. So unoriginal.
My first unicycle was named “Uni” pretty awesome eh?
But know I have and so does my brother, an awesome bedford Trials. Anyways, when where riding them leaning forwards of course we look like ozzy does when he walks, so we call mine ozzy. If you’ve ever seen the Osbournes you’ll understand.
Muni, Craig’s, the blue one
I have a Muni, my brother’s friend Craig gave me his, and my freestyle unicycle has a blue Miyata saddle and blue Primo tire.
my unis dont have names, but then again neither did my goldfish
the theory goes like this:
if i have a goldfish that has no name then its name cannot be written in the book of life and hence it can never die, however the goldfish in question got eaten by a herron, so don’t bother relying upon this idea to prolong your goldfishes life, it won’t work.
perhaps though i called it “the fish that has no name so death can’t find it” a little too regularly thus alerting the grim reaper to its true identity.
"if i have a goldfish that has no name then its name cannot be written in the book of life and hence it can never die, however the goldfish in question got eaten by a herron, so don’t bother relying upon this idea to prolong your goldfishes life, it won’t work. "
your message cracked me up laughing!
My 20" uni is called Pip she’e recently (this moring in fact) been given a new red and blac kris holm velo seat (lucky girl! lucky me!) and on fridya she’s getting a new muni seat:)
My Schwinn that I have now is called Frankentire because I kept adding spare parts to it whenever something would break, so it had different types of crank arms, different pedals, etc. I’m in the building process of a new one at the moment (my beautiful MUni), and its name is going to be Shakh Nas. It stands for Steve Howard And Kris Holm, Not A Schwinn. When I get it finished and post some pictures, I’ll explain the whole reason.
I call my old school 24" schwinn “El Guapo” which I believe means " The handsome one" or something in spanish. It’s Ironic since the uni was the about the ugliest thing i’d ever seen when I got it-- dirty and covered with rust.
Occasionally I refer to my KH24 as the “Wire Mule” but the name hasn’t really stuck. More often than not I simply refer to it as my KH24.
Well I am not much for naming stuff, but I just got my KH24 yesterday(advantage of living near Unicycle.com ) and that thing is so much bigger, meaner, more aggressive than my 24" Stealth Torker, I refer to it as “The Beast” It is scary!
Isn’t fridya a norse goddess?
I’m thinking about naming my uni “Sir Crash-a-lot.”
I so far haven’t named mine. It’s a long, hard process, and it must be done right. For example, imagine if your mother called you Gilbert, and you grew up to be a pro wrestler?
You would get laughed out of the ring (why are boxing rings square? ). And imagine if Scott called his Uni Sheila, or Maria. Imagine Christa(whoever that is) saying:
You see what I mean? It takes time.
