Worst names for bikes

Recently bought an old Saracen Pylon bike and very pleased with it but then I thought about the name 'Pylon' and it makes me think of girders or breeze blocks it just doesn't sound like a bike name.

I also remember the Planet X bike 'Uncle John' which if I remember rightly was named after an Uncle who liked to dress in woman's clothes. I guess the bike is a 'cross' CX bike.

Just wondering if there are any more strange or uninspiring bike names out there?

    Cove MTB's make a 'G-Spot', and they used to make a 'Hand Job'. Brilliant I think :-)

    Not a bike - but I recently got some marketing from a kit company called 'Pissei' - no-one wants pissei shorts!

    One of my neighbours has a Stiffee, another Cove model I should add.

    For some reason I've never liked the 'bizango'.

    Cove in total had
    G-spot
    Stiffee (available in Pink)
    Hand Job
    Hooker (available in Black)
    Hustler (maybe different connotations for someone who came of age in the 70's or 80's compared to now)
    Foreplay
    Playmate

    Hummer, Peeler, Sanchez and Shocker don't really cut it after those.
    EDIT: OK maybe I'm too innocent as I've found out some of the alternate meanings of those!

    None of those are bad though.

    For me the worst is 'Bike Manufacturing Company' I mean BMC what on earth where you thinking!

    Rumour is they filled the wrong section in when registering the company name. Instead of writing the name of the company they wrote the type of company.
