    Me! Just got my hardtail which is my bimble to the shops bike, my commute bike, my “take the little un out” bike and my weekend steed. I’d love a road bike, a full susser marathon trail and a downhill bike but no, just the one and it does me.

    Can I stay?

    I have literally just vomited at the thought of owning just one bike

    Vile post, go wash your mouth with soapy water

    Of course you can stay, but you will end up with more bikes if you do.

    Yup, one here. I had several, couldn’t justify it. Hell, I barely justify one.

    I only rode one today…. I have a few to choose from.

    Don’t worry,I’ve only got one and so have a lot of others.A surprisingly high number on here have none.

    Yep, just the one bike here.
    A 456-evo, I have enough other hobbies that I can’t justify having more bikes…I don’t get to ride this one as much as I’d like as it is.

    I’ve got one, I bought it to see how much I like biking.
    And I like it a lot.
    So later this year I’ll be buying another bike. ( best bnit is, my good wife TOLD me that I should buy another one)

    I saw this and thought I had a few more than one. Just counted up and scared myself. No wonder its crowded in the shed! Time for a clear out! 10 bikes and 8 frames. Varying from carbon road and full suss through fixed and single speed to vintage steel for L’Erorica. Could get down to three but one is self abuse.

    I’ve only got one bike but to be honest really need another for road training.

    Only have one. Sold a frame and 2 others to help fund the current one.
    Wish I could have as large and diverse a quiver* as some noted above but the reality is that I have a mortgage and family to feed so they come first ahead of my hobby. Bit grown up and all that but some things are just about more important than riding bikes.

    I’ve only got one πŸ™ but I am building another but it won’t be rideable for quite a while…

    I could easily manage with one, but prefer two.

    S-Works Enduro does it all on the MTB’ing side, but it’s good to have my old Lava Dome for pub/shop etc. duties.

    There would be no point selling either

    Just 1. Spearfish 29er. Fit it with small semi-slicks for road, anything up to a 2.5 Ardent for trail centres…. it’s ideal !

    I’ve got 1 and a half currently.. Which is reducing to one to fund an upgrade or two for the one.

    My carbon 456 is my everything bike which it does pretty well. There’s times when it would be nice to have a full suspension bike too but those times are in the minority.

    I have, in my opinion, the bare essential number; 2.
    1 Road bike- Rocky Mountain Oxygen 80
    1 Hardtail- Kona Explosif 650b

    I’m moving and sorting a new job so that wont be changing for some time.

    although technically i own more than one bike as im living abroad for sometime i only decided to take one with me, my anthem x. apart from the downhill tracks its covering all the bases for me, although going up a monster of a cat 3 road climb the other day with a 28lb full susser was hard work in places!!!

    For a moment there I thought you just asked if I had ONE bike 😯 . Well I have one mountain bike, a Genesis io id.

    But I have three road bikes (commuter fixed, road and winter/race) and a pair of tandems. That’s just a reflection of my riding really. Mainly road, and an MTB that will cover most of the places I ride.

    No. But I only ever ride one at a time. Is that the same?

    I technically have two, but one in practice. I have a HT here, and a BSO at the other end of the country for mincing round London.

    The thought of maintaining more than one bike makes me want to vom!

    Relatively poverty stricken with just 4.

    Road bike for commuting – Specialized Secteur Elite.
    Road-rigged MTB emergency spare – Specialized Stumpy 2001.
    Brompton.
    Orange 5.

    Perhaps I need a unicycle…

    Now, losing count of how many you have – that is a problem!

    Just the orange five here. Can’t afford anymore.

    Picked two awful dear sports to enjoy, mtb and mountaineering!

    NO LEAVE NOW, LEAVE, LEAVE! πŸ˜‰

    One bike or one mountain bike?

    Just the 2. A 456 Evo and a Merlin road bike.
    I think I’d like a full sus, but I also suspect I may be falling for the marketing hype. It’s moot anyway. No space and could not look my family in the eye if I dropped a couple of grand on a bike.

    I can’t believe I’ve been conversing with people who only have one bike.

    This is like when you’ve spent 6 months chatting up a stunning girl on facebook only to find out she’s a 53 year old male Unix administrator with a skin problem.

    we need to set up a trust fund for these poor poor people. one bike!

    I have one πŸ™‚ Soon to be none I think.

    I would really like just one but I currently have two..

    A shonky bitsa tip bike with gears, rack and trailer hitch for picking up the kids from school, days down the beach, doing the shopping and locking up in town if I get too pissed in the pub..

    And a rather svelte and modern (second hand) rigid steel mountain bike, which I would definitely not leave locked up in town..

    Yep. Just the 29er hardtail – no need for the expence of 2bikes.

    My wimminz logic dictates that as I’m mechanically inept, more than one bike is necessary for reasons of sanity.

    Also, price of second-hand stuff is so low than I couldn’t bear to give anything away. 😐

    So, in answer to your question, I don’t have one bike so should have kept my mouth shut!

    I only have one road bike, one commuter bike and one mountain bike, does that count? πŸ™‚ Even that is a struggle. The next bike is always just a small loss of willpower away….

    Just a 29er hardtail here, which to be fair is a good compromise for on/off road with a change of tyres. Combination of lack of space, another expensive hobby of Scuba Diving which takes up a lot of time and recent house purchase which all leads to lack of funds. Would like a CX bike, but can’t see that happening for a good while yet.. πŸ™
