temve: Detail of my green bastard randonneur (Randy)

And the baby has a name.

See, I was quite certain she was a female bike, even though there's nothing in her geometry or equipment that says so - she's just a small-sized roadbike, and most roadbikes are built for, or at least ridden by, men.

Actually, my tendency to name my bikes at one point completely derailed our nice but very talkative Local Bike Shop Guy (who's an ex-racer himself and who was clearly happy to sell something that isn't a mountain bike or electric city bike for a change) because all the while I kept mentioning Randy he thought I was referring to my wife rather than to the slightly dirty green bike of awesomeness parked outside.

Anyway, so this one had to fit at the end of the phrase "Sithbike, Randy, and...". So, three to four syllables, right? Maybe androgynous since there's nothing girl-specific about her. A bit aggressive. Cute. Mediterranean. And something that goes with the fact that one of her components is labelled, very legibly, "Centaur".
