Most & least diverse fLOLtillas of car-park-battleships?
Who has the most and least diverse quiver of steeds?
I propose myself for the former: road-race/TT bike, tourer, cargo bike, Brompton, drop bar 29er, ss hardtail, 5″ trailbike and full suss fat bike (I seriously hope this will be broken – probably by some loon with a recumbent or something – note unicycles don’t count, they’re not bikes 😛 )
I propose stoner for the latter: 8 bikes, all on-ones 😛Posted 4 years agotthewSubscriber
Well, I’ve not got them now, but at one time, (and all at the same time) I could lave laid claim to a,
old post office bike,
short wheel base/underseat steering recumbent,
old road bike with a Tricycle conversion axle.
And a unicycle, (though apparently that doesn’t count).
Now, single speed CX bike (Genesis Day One), Giant Anthem X and soon to be single speed 29er (Genesis High Latitude)Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscriber
unicycles don’t count, they’re not bikes
You knew I was going to contribute, didn’t you?
Though I think I have a reasonable entry even so:
Road bike, TT, winter/tourer/utility road bike, fixed, CX, hardtail, full-sus, tandem (with kiddycranks), turbo trainer bike. Also scoot, single speed and geared kids bikes in the garage along with a kiddy trailer.
Bah, can’t resist – trials, muni, road unicycles, all singlespeed, and one geared road uni.Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
Well I used to 😥 . A 20″ folding mountain bike, track bike, SS rigid 29er, road bike, fixed road bike. Dutch shopping bike for errands. Oh and for good measure a kiddyback tandem and a normal tandem, plus a unicycle and a KMX kart.
Some of those are still in my possession. But now I mainly ride race bike, fixed road and an mtb.Posted 4 years agobencooperMember

My personal fleet is (I think):Posted 4 years ago
Speed Ross and StreetMachine recumbents
Daewoo Shuttle folding bikes (singlespeed and three-speed)
On-One Tinbred SS
Tomac Revolver Ti with Rohloff and USE SUB
Giant NRS Team
Kona Cindercone with S&S couplings
Jo Burt’s Slingshot frame, and a Surly unicycle waiting to be built uptrail_ratMember
Ti rigid 29er rohloff
Alu 29er ht ss
Fixed cross bike
Thorn raven enduro beater built with rubbish for leaving places..
24 inch muni
Oh and a halfords folding bike locked up in den helder station on the bike racks ! Must have dissolved by now !
Mines probably least diverse. Although i do want to add another fatty (the 135 sliding jobby and use my rohloff )Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Cargo Bike (Kona Ute)
Rigid 29er HT (Niner SIR.9)
FS 26″ (Ventana El-Ciclon)
BMX (GT Performer)
No road bike but thinking of one of them BTWin jobbies from Decathlon, for the odd summer outing.
If I put the Rebas &/or gears on the Niner I suppose there’s another two categories potentially filled.
My favourite would be the Ute. 😀Posted 4 years agodonksMember
Quiver of steeds!!!Posted 4 years ago
I should be so lucky..
I have a bmx and that’s it.. Depressing really considering I’m 40 this year and still have not replaced the mtb since it got pinched so am just left with one bike with tiny wheels.
Maybe a win on the national today will sort that?kimbersSubscriber

Scum commuter HT
Broken FS (3y of inactivity and counting)
First ever ‘good’ bike from 1991that I put on retrobike now and again, get offered £40 for it, which is £40 more than its worth, then decide it holds too many memories to sell

Diversity of bicycles is a tough one to measure surely it comes down to the number of”Riding Bases” covered in a single shed or Garage…
My own “Quiver” is just increasing in size
1 DH bike
1 4″ forked geared 26″ HT
1 rigid SS (26″)
1 4″ forked SS 26″ wheeled jump bike
1 20″ wheeled BMX
1 700c Geared road bike
1 700c fixed/free SS commuter.
I’m sure there are more diverse collections than mine on STW…Posted 4 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
I definitely don’t have a ‘quiver’ (except those I have for archery) nor any ‘steeds’, but I do have a small collection of not very diverse 26″ bikes.
1×9 BFe with 150mm forks.Posted 4 years ago
1×8 Mr Hyde with 100mm forks.
1×7 Trailstar with 80mm forks.
And just to mix things up, a 1×1 rigid Lee Cooper.stratmanSubscriber
My collection is also rather mainstream
Orbit Harrier steel road bike
Marin IFT hardtail
Giant Defy carbon road bike
Only reason for feeling the need to contribute is that my wife and I have his and hers versions of the last two. My strategy for coping with the s-1 aspect of the n+1 rulePosted 4 years ago
