Show me your "I only have 1 bike" bikes.
This was my only bike for a very long time. Then I got serious about fitness and got a road bike, then got a full sus for a summer in Canada and it’s never been the same ever since. I didn’t switch out tyres etc either. Exactly the same setup for everything. I wish I could go back to the blissful ignorance!

Oh if you insist! My one and only bike and it goes everywhere even if I’m over biked at times! Never road ride so don’t need to swap wheels but could do with some mud tyre so I can switch and swap depending on whether it’s wyre forest or anywhere else. The mud guard will be snipped off come summer.

Here’s mine. I will use mudguards as and when I want to, they’re removed or fitted in a minute. I don’t change tyres. Hans Dampf up front, Nobby nick on the rear with tubes at around 35psi, maybe 30 on the front. I find that works on anything, but I don’t expect or chase F1 levels of grip. No issues with punctures so far. Basically I just try to ride it as much as possible. Mostly natural trails but also trail centres. It works on anything, a great bike. Brill fun. Keep wanting to build up a hardtail, but not sure I’d ever use it.Posted 4 years agohoraMember
Heres mine (now has a air shock)Posted 4 years agogeeMember
For years I only had one – a Titus HCR titanium hardtail. Got expanded with a road bike, then a training mountain bike, then a full sus bike, then….
Still got the Titus built up, just with some more modern parts now! This is the BITD build with original X0, Ringle Mobypost, Ibis ti stem, Tune cranks and ti BB, Fizik Aliante saddle, X517 ceramic rims, CK hubs, Avid Arch supremes, FRM brake levers, SID World Cup, Egg Beater ti pedals…
The King headset is still in the frame!

I have no pictures, but I have an Ibis Mojo HD with a ccdb air shock & marzocchi 55rc3 170mm coil fork, hans dampf tyres.
My only bike, dont find it an issue having only 1 bike for the riding I do, which consists of welsh/scottish trail centres, peaks/macc forest natural stuff, UK uplift, spanish lift assisted singletrack, Alps chairlift assisted stuff.
And nothing gets changed out , its ridden in the same form all year round.Posted 4 years agorickonSubscriber
Had this as my only MTB for over a year now, just fitted me Pikes and RCT3 rear shock. The Pikes are blooming awesome, stiff, track amazingly well and have great mid stroke support.
The 5spot is just a brilliant one bike to do it all bike, its not light, but given the right legs and lungs its very quick. it just begs to be run ragged, just had a razz around Glentress and I just don’t want to stop riding it.
Will be replaced with a Sultan when the time comes I think, as the Burner has too long a Ett for me.

Had it almost a year. It does my 5 mile road commute in about the same time as a slick-shod hardtail with clippy pedals. All I do is pump the tyres up to 60psi.Posted 4 years ago
Apart from a shorter stem it’s still the same. I’d love a reverb but apart from that it’s bang on…not bad for a C2W bike 🙂mikewsmithSubscriber
Mud Guards?? WTF?? On a mountain bike…
Did a one bike for all and it was a pain, tough wheels, light wheels big tyres fast tyres, too heavy for XC, too light for DH.
My Blur LTc is a little too heavy for XC now but hits trail to AM. There will be a DH bike for the big stuff and maybe an XC bike for the light stuff.Posted 4 years ago
