    Name proposal , Magnet or Rare

    It sounds like a really clever technology that. Simple.

    When someone asks what kind of bike it is, you'll say, "wisper it" They'll then ask you again in a quieter voice. ;)

    I am sitting with the design team at the moment. The name is a real sticking point, I am reading all your suggestions out as we get them. Moth and IT seem to have it at the moment although Ole (with the accent!) has also been suggested. I like Pineapple! This has to be a name that works internationally. Very tricky.

    Thanks for all the suggestions....

    Pineapple sounded fine to me the first time that I read it. I'd say stick with that.

    Though it wouldn't work on say a Kalkhoff with the Impulse DU. :D

    Pineapple is a good name, but probably won't appeal to all. There'll be those who can't see the sense of a fruit name on a bike.

    I like IT, Wisper It has a definite appeal in various spoken ways. Not only the obvious hushed Wisper it but also in the sense of there are many e-folders but this one is It.

    My worry Tony is the two words together. Whisper is to speak with a very quiet voice or Shhhh.... do you see where I am going with this? The Wisper IT? My competition would have a feild day! :eek:

    Our Chinese design team leader working with the design guys in the U.K. thinks we have an easy task comming up with the name. He has just said “OK I’ll think of the name, you design the frame lock!” Maybe he has a point! :rolleyes:

    Typical product engineer who doesn't grasp the fact the success of the product is 95% down to marketing.

    I thought of that hush meaning as a plus point. In selling mode I could make play with the Wisper It name and amuse the prospective customer(s) in more than one way.

    That's true about the competition being amused in a negative way, but they aren't the customers buying them of course.

    Of course if you were very naughty you could have the Pineapple name on the frame this way:

    pineApple

    Maybe also iBike.

    :D
