Why ‘Dionysus’?

A friend recently asked why I’d rechristened Ol’ Paint as Dionysus.

Is it just the pleasure thing, or do you feel like you’ve got the sword of Damocles hanging over your head as well?


So I responded with the explanation I had made on the occasion of her debut ride: “torn to pieces and reborn in the spring”.

I was reminded of the conversation when I stumbled across this beautiful image this evening:

Unfortunately, my Dionysus is far from immortal. There’s already a spot of rust on the seat tube that I need to attend to.
