Roy- I get a kick out of every time I hear about this name, but for different reasons. Firstly, it is not pronounced as it spells in English, (I believe it is correctly pronounced "fa/jeen"). However, I recall a guy in Colorado who had one of these bikes, (maybe it was given to him) who removed the "F" from all the decals. Apparently it it negatively affected his manly self-imagine to have a Faggin bike. What a hoot! Cheers- Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT
