4 out of 4 for mine, 2 out of 2 for other garage dwellers (boy 1 and wife ) and 2 out of 2 for the one lent to boy 2 and his girlfriend in London. Hmm I seem to have 8 bikes.....
What percentage of your bike are in working order?
3 out of 4 for me, must be a record!
About 40%, but 2 "only" need flats fixing.
There's the one which spewed me off a week ago, and a couple of wrecks in a friends garage. Do those still count as bikes?
Mine: all of them.
Kids: BMX needs new brake spring after Son1 fancied "Brakeless" and snapped the spring. KMX needs a new rear derailleur - which is on the list.
3 from 3 here.... But that doesn't stop me wanting to increase the stable. N+1 and all that!!
bike 1 - forks u.s.
bike 2 - showing signs of stanchion wear - rear wheel needs new bearings ( again - pesky cheapo bearings!)80
bike 3 - new brake pads ,maybe new cables & a fettle on the front mech
Not sure how to equate all that as a percentage though?
3 ready to ride, 1 needs rear shock service and 1 rolling chassis.
Surprisingly good at the moment, 7 ready to ride, 4 in various stages of rebuild.
All the important ones are working.
Full Sus - tick
Ti Hardtail - tick
Road - tick
Retro HT - tick
Pub bike - puncture
Singlespeed - not built
The Voltage is in such good condition I'm scared to use it because it can only deteriorate
The Ramones is 100% operational but not so highly tuned
The Rize works but is starting to feel a bit meh - typical tired trail bike
The Big Sur is similarly baggy I hardly use it these days
The Proflex is 100% functional but then again there isn't much to function
I'm massively OCD when it comes to faulty anything on my bikes and it won't stop nagging me until whatever it is that needs to be fixed, is fixed. Nothing is ever 100% but I'd feel confident taking any of my three bikes on an all day epic.
However, my XC bike has a slightly frayed gear cable near the rear mech.
