1 bike, 3 wheels.
I have a 29er HT which usually runs a SS rear or an alfine 8 when I want to gear up for road or smooth, flat trails. Both have the same sprocket size so are an easy swap. Two bikes for the space of one
Is enough ever enough? How many bikes do you own?
1 bike, 3 wheels.
Hardtail with discs
Hardtail with cantis
Rigid single speed
CX 2 (Spare)
Fixed road bike with guards
Fixed TT bike
Fixed hill climb bike
I have 1...no need for any more. 1 that gets used. I also have a Pace RC 200 F8 but that hangs in the garage for sentimental reasons.
One long-travel steel hardtail for everything - big long all-dayers, trail centres, jumps, I've raced it, I'd take it to the Alps (with some bigger rotors), the Dales, Wales, everywhere.
Although I have borrowed road bikes for BHF rides and the like.
I just like it. And I have a small shed.
3 at the present minute though might be down to 2 after tonight then back to 3 after I pick up a Giant Defy 2 tommorow. Then hopefully down to 2 when I sell my Hardtail.
1 x full suss 1 x Road bike is all I really need.
I have 3-
A 94 Univega Alpina that I've SS'd, ride that to work, blast around the roads.
My Pitch, which feels like too much bike sometimes.
My Kula, was built as a SS to keep wear of the Pitch, easier maintenance too. However it feels more fun to ride a lot of the time. Just converted it to 1x9 for the Kielder.
Toying with using the Pitch as a donor for a c456...
1 sunday bmx 24", which really like, use 1-2 times a week
Hack bike for getting to my job
Scott voltage , really cool bike - used it for bike park vacations
Rigid singlespeed mtb 26" - needs a new frame, use 2 times a week.
My old bmx 24" - going to sell..
Old rigid 26" geared mtb - for rain and snow when i cant ride up the hills singlespeed
Would like to try a 29" ss rigid and a fatbike..
Well, I've only got three - a Camber, a Wolf Ridge and a P7. My Enduro has just been retired, so the frame is sat on the mantelpiece.
Mrs PJM has a 2008 Rock Springs, which I've built her, stepson 2 has a Merlin Malt 1, which I've also built. There's a Spesh Hardrock and two Viper Crazy Boy hardtails in the garage which the kids have grown out of.
I daren't count them.
Cube Frittz for the Alps
Trek FuelEx9 for local trails
Orange Crush for winter
Boardman Team Carbon for my lycra perversion.
The Cube is up for sale as im gone major roadie and if i go back to the Alps it'll be to bag some of the big road climbs...

Running out of space
Recently rationalised down to 2, a long travel steel HT and a road bike, but then gone temporarily back up to 3 as couldn't resist a Cannondale Supersix 105 at sale prices.
Plan is to go back to 2 once I get round to cleaning up and selling my old road bike.
Well, you lot are show offs.
I have my trusty P7... and nothing else. Though I might buy a rigid fork and some wheels to singlespeed it over winter. Does that count as 2 bikes?
Oh, and I have my stolen/recovered Pipedream frame in the loft. She never felt the same after being ragged by some scallys.
Whyte 19 SS(Alloy)
Whyte 19 Race (Carbon seat stays)
Whyte 19 SS Ti
(all four with Maverick SC32's)
Orbea igorre CX bike
Willier Izoard (not the XP)
I also have my sons 2011 Marin East Peak XC8 if I'm stuck.
This time last year I decided I was going to downsize from a DH bike and a hardtail to one bike for everything. And I did. For a while.
I now have
A 160mm FS (the one bike for everything)
A SS 120mm dj bike (the original hardtail from above, rebuilt in different form)
A road bike (errmmm)
Just downsized but it's creeping back up;
Kona Dew deluxe
& a stripped Inbred frame
Do like the look of the cheap Nukeproof Mega's at the moment. And the Titus El Guapo. CRC have cheap Stinky six frames as well. And I've wanted a Kaffenback or Pompino for a while which are on offer.
Where'd I put my credit card....
Two years ago I had 4 bikes and decided I really didn't need them all so I got rid of the single speed and the road/commuter bike, leaving me with a full sus and a cx bike that I used as a commuter.
Since then I have bought - another single speed and another road bike so I am back where I started
Nicolai Helius CC
Kona Hahanna rigid single speed
Genesis Croix De Fer
Cannondale Caad8 8
i suppose i could be happy with 8 bikes
1 hardtail - light enough to race xc at a push
1 bouncy xc bike
1 daft bouncy AM bike
my equilibrium for sunday best
a winter hack road bike
a commuter - suitable for wheelie practise
i really think that would be enough...
N=N=1 for me
Short travel F/S for everything, including the daily (road) commute. Bit heavy up the big hill coming home but I figure it's good for my muscles.
I have one all terrain bike. It does all terrain, so that should cover everything. Some of you are mental...
Titus Switchblade 140mm full suss (main ride)
Beone RAW carbon race hardtail
PX Kaffenback commuter
Part built Titus Supermoto 8" full suss - being built on the cheap. Looking for older Marz 888 to finish it.
and want a new 29er as well
Giant xtc ex and a Canyon Nerve on the way
