- Should i do it?
I know to some of you lot having only one bike seems like a normal sensible idea, but to other its sounds like hell. Now i have three bikes, and i know you can only ride one at a time. Now thinking do i really need all three? Im thinking of have one nice bike for everything and then selling everything off and having some money.
At the moment i have a 'hardcore hardtail', a light weight singlespeed and a jump bike. Now im thinking of just having a lightweight xc bike for everything, 100mm travel. My 'hardcore hardtail' has 100-140mm travel and i always have it on 100mm and cant really see anyneed for anything more than that? I love my singlespeed but would most likely have my one bike set as geared all summer and ss all winter so still have both. Also love to race xc, which the 'hardcore hardtail' cant really do, which again is why the need for a lightweight xc bike.

I have 4 bikes in the house but I could get by on 2 mtb and roadbike.
More choice but more clutter/servicing-more cost.
If I lived even closer to the city centre I would sell my commuter and if it was sunny and warm I wouldn't need my winter roadbike.
Get married and all the bikes are gone!Posted 8 years agoGWMember
do you realise 4X hardtails are light, designed for 80-100mm forks and the majority have reasonably steep angles? Granted it wouldn't be ideal but with a lightweight build I'd happily ride one for the odd 2hr XC race. (infact, I have) but then I'm not capable of winning any XC races and would be doing them purely for fun.Posted 8 years ago
