A couple of things

Do you think it's a good idea to put your kid on a bike called a Wipeout? What other models do they have? The Reconstructive Surgery? The Faceplant? How about the Spittin' Chiclets?

Then there's this: These stickers are NEVER TRUE. I always get a good couple of turns on those screws. If I don't, the bike comes back in a few days with the stem all floppy.

Doesn't Next make Murray seem like "high end?"

My first bike (circa 1960) was a Murray. It weighed more than I did.

I like the juxtaposition of the brand and model: Wipeout Next, or Next, Wipeout.

My commuter should have been named the Low-Speed Flop.

I think there's a car with a similarly inappropriate name, but I can't remember it at the moment.

Google wants me to type "Clarus Kotast" to post this. Sounds like a couple of product names.
