Bicycle Bill

the spray from a car — douchebag shower
a swarm of gnats — well, if your mouth is open it's protein
and goose crap is just that — goose crap

Here's a few, probably not the best but it's what I could come up with.

Corpus Bikeus: bike parts left locked to an object after a bike has been stolen.
Dismemberment : wheel left behind after bike has been stolen.
Green Security : a bike locked to a tree.
Toy Hauler : a cyclist riding with a trailer.

DEFINITION(S) Needed: bike parts left locked to an object after a bike has been stolen.
I call these "bike carcasses." :)

Jeff Windatt

Here are a few of my ideas:

spray from a car = biker bath
a cyclist riding with a trailer = I called it a trunk the other day...
a car parked in a bike lane = ramp
a bike locked to a tree = birch bike
a cyclist riding with a trailer = grocery getter

chadeau

Broken bottle = flat glass (Flaagstaff)
Gnats = eye kill (Austin Town Lake hike/bike)
MV on hike-bike trail = a-hole (Austin and Boise trails)
MV parked bike lane = a-hole (Flagstaff)
Goose crap = duck mud (Boise Parks)
Gaggle of geese = Canadian Air Force (Boise)
Cycle with trailer = Semi
Helmet mirror = cyclops
Locked to tree = wood lock
Locked fallen bike = dead lock
Abandoned lock = ghost lock
Locked wheels = ghost frame
Locked parts = bones
Car splash = road shower
( I added the city names where this has most often occurred or been experienced , feel free to edit !)
