Here in the UK a bike is the short form for a bicycle.
So is over here in Ireland, but sometimes is also called a "pushbike" (as opposed to a "motorbike").
would αυτό instead of εκείνο really be bad?
Why it's not το παλιό μηχανάκι μου? I just don't get the word order
Both word orders are correct.
Isn't it "bike" also considered 'motorbike'? Maybe μηχανακι should be accepted
