A bike named Trots

So, let me tell you about my first bike. Not my first bike ever but certainly my first bike with a name. I used it in my first ever triathlon. He was made of steel, his shifters were on the down tube and his name was….Trots. Trots? What kind of name is that? Was your bike named for Leon Trotsky? Or some type of digestive disorder?

No! Of course not. Trots stood for….I mean, it means, or it meant. Well, actually, I can’t say with certainty why the bike was named Trots.

Despite the fact that Trots that was 20 lbs heavier than my bike, Kebby still beat me in her first triathlon
