I see many people on here with lots of bikes and quite a few riders I know have a number of bikes (As do I, well 3), but I keep on finding that although I would like lots of different bikes, that I would find it even more difficult to choose which one to ride?
Trying to pigeonhole bikes for specific uses may help, but I don't really race, don't ride road, cyclocross, DH, FR, BMX, 4X, dirt-jump so can't use those
Big Hills/chunkier trail centre riding usually results in taking the full-suss (130/120mm), but I'm not sure how I'd choose if I were to get a 6"ish full-suss?
for normal XC MTBing with the odd silly bit thrown in leaves me a bit stumped as to which bike to ride? I usually feel that I'm wasting the full-suss and can make the (not-so) techincal bits a bit dull. I like to be able to leave chunkier tyres on it too, but its slower that way. If I don't ride it, I feel as if its money wasted
The HT is quite uncomfortable (a 6011/6061 giant) and I fret about mashing the rear wheel on drops.
The (V-braked) rigid bike can be VERY fun to ride (last time it went to the peak), but really limits the ride when theres stairs/drops on offer. Also usually has the slicks/full guards/upside down long stem/narrow bars on
I'd sort of like a CX bike too, but would just cause more confusion on what to ride
It was much easier with jsut one bike, without the want/need to ride the nastier stuff
Is it just me?
