do you own? I know it's probably been covered and the answer is obviously (n+1) but that aside, how many bikes do you currently have in your collection?
How many bikes...
Built up, 3
Plus another 3 or 4 frames, some wheels, a brakeset, you know how it is.
one and a half..
Road bike - Trek 1400.
MTB - Rock Lobster 853.
Tourer/Commuter Spesh Rockhopper.
BMX - Mongoose Expert.
Enough to be getting on with for the time being.
Just one (at a time )
I do! Luckily I have a big shed. At the moment working:
On One 456
On One Pompino
Giant TCR Aliance
Trek Madone 5.2
Raleigh Butchers bike
What I really want to know is who has the most bikes on here? Chap I used to ride with had 80+ so the rumour went.
Marin Wolf Ridge.
Whyte 19 Steel.
6 ish 4 rideable as I dont have enough wheels or seatpost/saddles to go round.
Show us a pic of the butchers bike, always fancied one!
3 in total, road bike, trail bike & DH bike. Trouble is my wife has the same! Oh, and we share an old BMX as a pub/shop bike.
Hmmmmmm, I have a couple of frames, forks, disks, wheels, shocks etc. Maybe we can set up some kind of swap shop to get these random components being used. Seems a shame to have them sitting gathering dust!
5, about to be deduced to 4 when I can decide what frame to buy
No kids, no more room either as a fair few have to be outhoused at present.
2001 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR
2003 Cannondale 1FG
2010 Commencal Meta 55
2010 Rose Thrill Hill 8
2009 Felt F85 - Road bike
Kona A (currrently in bits)
Recently gone down to just one due to money being tight and the fact that the full suss just wasn't getting used, new BFe frame yesterday (replaces a BFe but gone down a size), i'm happy with it for all the riding it does from xc to full on dh, not the fastest or comfiest tool for the job but it's certainly got the fun factor for me.
4 plus a frame.
old road bike
Let's see, 1 bed studio flat, me and the gf living here, how many do you think I could get away with?
I spy 2 here...
And one hiding behind the sofa!
No weeding /fence painting required. Might need a tidy up though. Or I could go for a ride.
3 (2 x MTB, 1 x Commuter)
Rusty Spanner, on here:
Can't access my account to link photo for some reason...
Currently in BBQ guise, but has a wicker basket that drops in instead. A good laugh for gentle summer picnic rides with the basket on!
How does anyone bring themselves to sell them? When I look at how much I paid for my bikes and the second hand value/emotional attachement I can't do it. Reading this thread I'm not the only one!
"4 + 1 frame" +1
Classic Inbred, C'dale Prophet (broken), C'dale Gemini, SC Superlight & Marin MV (06) frame in the loft.
Inbred get ridden the least.
just the one, for now.......
2 but am thinking of getting rid of the full sus as I do like riding it, but I can't see much use for sofa-like 7" of travel on the kind of trails I normally ride (Woburn dh stuff mainly but also Cannock and FOD). Was great for Whistler but too much for pretty much everything I'd normally ride..
Ideally I'll eventually have a road bike, a decent all rounder hardtail mtb (or maybe short travel fs) and a bmx Don't like redundancy and living in the east midlands and having 2 mtbs that can only get used at weekends seems a bit silly to me.
Currently reduced to 3.
Dirt, 29er HT and Nukeproof Mega, covers the bases.
A pitch pro, Orange crush and an old 531 raleigh
kilo - 19 bikes?
3, and 1 for my wife. hopefully 4 in 2012, as I'm going to buy a mountain bike again (currently have 2 road bikes and a commuter...)
only one bike these days.. can afford another one.
4 is the magic number
8 and a frame.
single.50sq flat,3rd floor.no lift.(only 7 bikes here tho-other 1.5 at my gran's house.
two topeak stands,3 bikes each.looks neat,out of the way.
handlebars turned on mtbs,straight on road bikes.
took ages to sort out the spacing though.
front wheels hang above the desk.brompton under the desk.
list if anyone cares.
brand x road,ss dry commuter
thorn audax ,half speed granny,son.wet weather commuter.
pimped brompton.for when I went to language courses.

One town/pub bike
That's enough. For now....
Got two, one all rounder the other super light XC racer, the light ones got to go, not sure how to sell it, wether to sell it complete or break it into bits and maybe achieve more for it, is there much demand of DT Swiss stuff second hand?
4 and one more on the way.
Bfe on way...
Plus Mrs Mc Lapierre HT and a couple old 531 road frames.
Oh, marin full sus in shed...
Four. Hardtail, full susser, road bike, cross bike.
