How many STWers have just one bike?
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.Posted 4 years agoalthepalSubscriber
Only have one. Sold a frame and 2 others to help fund the current one.Posted 4 years ago
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 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.Posted 4 years agoandypaul99Member
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!!!Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
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.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
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..Posted 4 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
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!Posted 4 years agoNW Alps Jeyer aka BozMember
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.. 🙁Posted 4 years ago
