7 and enough to put together a hack:
vintage steel hardtail (89 cindercone)
ss alu hardtail (frame swap imminent)
hooligan steel hardtail
steel fixed gear
ss alu flat bar commuter
alu road bike
steel 24-inch cruiser
carbon road bike
and following bikemonger's recent postings, one of those longtail things!Posted 9 years agoandrewhMember
1993 M-Trax, one of the old Ti ones, 21 speed LX and cantis.
1997 Claude Butler Psycho, converted to SS, comuting and going places.
199? Coppi K14, road/road racing/crits/hill climbs/touring
1999 Marin Attack Trail, 5" coil sprung and now with triple clamps and big brakes
2004 Saracen Killi, surprisingly light magnesium hardtail
2009 Yeti ASR-Carbon, just to make you all jealous. 19LB full suss! Racing only.
Probably enough spares to build another, just 'need' some wheels.
Collecting a time-trial bike on Friday, old and second-hand, blew all my funds on the Yeti. Just need a 'cross bike now…Posted 9 years ago
Hmm..7 1/2 I guess:Posted 9 years ago
circa '90 M500 Cannondale (in bits…components that is, not the frame!)
'96 M2 Stumpie (slightly more assembled than the above)
'02 P7 (vaguely more assembled than the M2 after a rear-wheel QR incident)
'03 SWorks Enduro
Trek Bruiser (which I really ought to flog on account of my age and jumping ability being diametrically opposed, and not in a good way)
HPVelotechnik Speedmachine (recumbent)
Challenge Hurricane (recumbent)
And a Pashley Municyle 😉bugpowderdustMember
Here's my current eclectic selection
SS Karate Monkey
Mk1 Dialled Price Albert

1987 Cannondale sm1000 (still original spec)

Specialized Hotrock… soon be a Felt 24"Posted 9 years ago
Carrera Vulcan (but I made it from bits n bobs)
Claud Butler MTBdamionMember
I feel justified with:
Kona Coiler DeeL (most crashed, often broken, like now)
DMR Sideick (5", 2×9, most ridden, most reliable)
Inbred (SS, Rigid, most night rides)
Diamondback cruiser (for sale)
My wife's got:
Kona Stinky DeeL (usually gathering dust)
Kona Dawg Primo (usually filthy)
And that is what is left after a cull. I'd dread to think how many we've been through over the years.Posted 9 years agomosSubscriber
Spec Allez – winter road
Spec Roubaix – summer road
5 Spot – mtb fave
Orange Crush – for when i'm feeling unfit (most of the time)
Litespeed Toccoa – built into ss rigid weight weenie un-ridden cos it rides like a stiff gearless pig
96 Santa Cruz Tazmon frame – airshock stictionfest, should have bought a turner instead
Kona Kula at parents place in spain
Kwak kx250f mx bike (not endurofag green lane sh@gger migh i add!)
Wants:-Posted 9 years ago
On-One Ti29er (SS or gears depending on mood, my main race bike)
On-One Inbred SS (ye olde faithful)
Condor Pista (SS commuter)
Surly Steamroller (the old commuter – currently built as brakeless fixie but should just sell it)
Lynskey Cooper road bike (with powertap – the road/training bike)
Storck C1.1 (blinged up road bike – but rarely gets used because the powertap is on the Lynskey)
and a couple of frames lying round.
Just need a fast/light full susser for the 24 hour races, but the Storck and Surly will have to go… (that's downsizing, innit?)Posted 9 years agoOllyMember
3 is the magic number.
but definatly need a commuter to stop nice bikes getting nicked, so is that counted in the three???
Trance, Primary, loved(cleaned and polished) more than its ridden
Single speed XtC, bridleway tyres at the moment for evening bashings, which make up most of the weight, swap them for conti mud tyres and it weighs next to NOTHING, so good to take along to races as a spare incase it turns filthy
Burley hardtail (currently a street/dirt/park bike, looking to sell it and build up a raather nice chameleon with lyriks)Posted 9 years agoBigDummySubscriber
I seem to ahve too many. Trouble is, the Brompton and the Big Dummy are pretty well non-negotiable, and I sold my last Kona A'ha then immediately regretted it once already, so I'm not doing that again.
Only really got one mountain bike and one proper roadie. The "winter" road bike really needs changing for something else, but I'd struggle to do without it entirely. 😀Posted 9 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
and on order
will then turn Mather into townbike maybe xtracycle
You're going to do what to a Mather? 😯
Which Pegoretti frame do you have on order? Be prepared for a loooong wait – my friend waited over 12 months for his Luigino:

I think Rob is pretty happy to see his bikes being used for stuff other than just pure recreation. He started offering discounts for people who specified rack mounts and mudguard eyelets etc, so that hopefully people would continue to use them when it isn't pristine number 1 bike.
I have 6
Rigid singlespeed MTB for local riding
Short travel XC race/marathon hardtail MTB
Full sus 5 spot
Steel tourer/commuter/CX bike
Roadie singlespeed hack bike
Though my 'nice' road bike is getting decidedly long in the tooth, so I'd like to get a carbon bling number next year.Posted 9 years agomcbooMember
Lemond Filmore fixie
Ti456 long travel hardtail for big climbing days and muddy winter XC
Blur Lt 5" for fast summer XC and trail centres
Boardman Team Carbon road bike, latest addition and whole new way to spend money.
Wouldnt mind a SS rigid hardtail but do I really need one…..???Posted 9 years agopeachosMember
how many inbreds?!
06 Norco Six-One main bike.
Recently built DMR Trailstar SS for local loops. Don't know what year it is.
Old (maybe 60's or 70's?) LeJeune road bike. Converted to SS for commuting and training. Awesome bike that I paid a tenner for off Gumtree.
Circa 95 Marin Indian Fire Trail. Awaiting a reincarnation.Posted 9 years ago
Team Saracen BMX Jump bike. Blookdy heavy.BernaardMember
Four here. For now.
Carrera Fury converted to SS/rigid with slick for commuting
Tried to whittle it down to a roadie and a long travel HT, but failed.
Plus there is a Voodoo Wanga frame on its way.
If you have the room, keep them. I always think about selling the Yeti, but then I ride it and I change my mind. Again I think about selling the Inbred, but then I ride it.Posted 9 years ago
The Wanga is going to be built as a comparison to the Inbred. Then whichever rides better will be kept.
