Mellow Yellow

I have a new fixie and its yellow.
Its not really new but all the parts from my old Apollo have been swapped onto this frame. The the old bike has a slightly skewed rear triangle which made it impossible to straighten the rear wheel with good chain tension. The other advantage of the new frame is that its slightly smaller and fits me perfectly. I'm a big fan of the colour yellow. Its highly vissible on the road and has something upbeat and playful about it. As I was photographing the bike, my cat Augie decided to come and say hello... although he didn't seem to be too interested in the bike, only snoozing and having his belly scratched.
So, in honour of Augie, I think I'll name this bike:

Sorry to hear about the demise of the Apollo but this new bike is very nice and if it fits you better, all the better. Cool name too.
