- Poll (sort of): How many of your bikes are currently rideable?
2 solos, one tandem ready to go – one road bike been hanging on the wall for 15 yrs, one broken unicycle.
Its one place where I am obsessive – the tandem was stripped to be transported and lovingly rebuilt with most bolts removed and regreased, everything cleaned and chains lubed!Posted 7 years agoM1llh0useMember
3.5 out of 4
Singlesoeed Scott scale ready to goPosted 7 years ago
456SS currently on turbo trainer duties, could do with brakes bleeding
Trek fuel ex8 ready to go
Zx636r b1h wearing track fairings ready to go, road fairings freshly painted, need a quick run over with rubbing compound then they'll be ready to be fitted.stuartie_cMember
Road bike – good to go
Racer X – squirt of lube on the chain and fork stanchions
Maxlight – shares wheels with Racer X so only one ready at a time
Motolite – pump up the tyres and stick some brake pads in
So 2 of 4, but over the years I've found that I can only ride one bike at a time so I'm currently 100% over-prepared.Posted 7 years agoscoobmwSubscriber
3 of 3, though the riding to work bike is struggling with gearing just now despite new cables, cassette, crankset and chain. Think the hanger is goosed but it's an ancient old Bike Co-op bike, and live nor work anywhere near the place anymore.Posted 7 years ago
'5' is rock n roll
Kona HT is pretty good though front fork remote lockout disnae work anymore – disnae spring back – have to haul the cable !theboatmanMember
3 from 3 all good, roadrat for daily commute is suitably filthy and it's a race between the rim and the hub for which will die first. My pastic road bike is mint and has seen a good summer, but sadly despite my soul being good to go it's has seen more dust from the shed than the trails this year, but it's limited outings still put a smile on my face!Posted 7 years agoPawsy_BearSubscriber
1/2 New cassette, rings and chains – came in from ride and cleaned bike and chain as always – hmm time to check the chain (OMG) 😡 chain is well worn. Still 8 months and 2 chains worth of riding. Going for XTR and will check chain more regularly. Its expensive but I am worth it 😀 and the 100km Brecon Beast this weekend will be so much easier without slipping chain LOLPosted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
3 of the 5. Though the Hemlock is slightly unwell with a slow puncture I've not bothered to fix and various squeaks from the rear end. The other 2 are just piles of bits, one is awaiting me having the energy to finish spraying it and the other is just neglected.Posted 7 years agojamesMember
.. and how many aren't?
Oh and Excluding punctures
I'm on 1 of 4, though I haven't got round to blowing the tyres up since fitting them on the XC HT
FS is waiting to replace the headset, could do with replacing hub bearings and the chain/casette/chainrings want swapping. I've got all the bits, I'm a bit stumped on removing the worn out internal (not integrated) one
Slick tyred rigid bike is missing a front mech
4X/DJ play bike needs some (uncontaminated) pads and a solution to the chain jamming between ISCG mounts and crank
