    I’m 3 for 3 at the moment ๐Ÿ˜€ for the first time in a while. Also at the point where there is nothing I feel I need to change on any bike, but as I haven’t quite sorted out storage for 2 of them at my current house, I only have access to one ๐Ÿ™

    75% – rhe Rockhopper needs the new wheel fitting.

    Apart from that, all is good.

    MTB fine, BMX, well, it’s a BMX innit?

    Just about to go out on the roadie for the first proper big roadie ride in ages.
    It’s going to hurt ๐Ÿ˜€

    100% 4/4. Though some tweaks really required, however with current crop of good weather no way am I going to start fettling ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have several half-built frames. Do they count?

    If they don’t, 3/3.

    4, if you include the misses’s.

    2/3 and that’s only cause my mates nicked the seat of my winter bike. Because the one on his new giant he reckons is to hard for him. The big girl

    a) Love your seating area
    b) 93.7% of 1 bike (now) – at LBS getting BB serviced which accounts of 6%, and some shiny Hope bits* added which will fix the .3%

    *How much are their jockey wheels???

    I’ve got 5/8 working at the moment (counting the whole family here), but I’ve only just taken the shock off the full suss this evening. Need a couple of new bolts and it’s good as new

    5 out of 5. I work for a bike company and have access to a full equipped workshop so I have no excuses for them not to be.

    If we are counting the whole family fleet I’m 8/8.

    For once, 4 of 4 can be ridden without having to borrow parts from each other.

    is that working order, or good working order

    either way im in the 90% region out of three

    even better out of four, if i include the missus

    lets just ignore the other bikes in the shed, they are not mine to sell.

    8 bikes, 2 working, 2 mid-“re-engineering”, the rest just in bits cos I CBA.

    like Meatloaf – two outta three aint bad

    actually the 3rd isn’t so bad just need to sort the brakes on the mountain bike (I really don’t know what I am doing with hydro discs, may have to buy tthew loads of beer and ask for a lesson)

    I hate to have to be the one to point it out, but judging from the photograph posted, at least 50% of the OPs bikes are in fact, wrought iron garden chairs..

    by that reckoning I estimate that getting on for about 83% of my steeds are in a useable condition

    In the last week or two I’ve rebuilt pedals, serviced forks, changed BB bearings, adjusted headsets, changed rear end bushings, loctited bolts, replaced broken chainguide bits, serviced a freehub, bled brakes and replaced a bent saddle.

    Was sure I was finished, but now I need to do frame bearings.

    It never ends, does it?

    6/6

    OK, I’ll admit to slight derailler setup issues on the Tracer, and I need to re-tune the suspension to cope with the silly speeds and flat landings I’m hitting.

    Is that like a where’s wally picture Harry? I can only see two.

    Me?
    Hmmm, not all for sure
    CX Bike – yes
    Road bike – yes
    SS MTB – yes
    Touring bike – Yes
    Cruiser – No
    SS CX – No
    Geared MTB – No
    Hybrid – No

    So 50/50 split I’m afraid but to be fair the SS CX only needs some brakes and the cruiser is fine, it’s just in bits.

    99% Both fully functional, but the full sus is clean needing a lube.

    4 out of 4 for mine, 2 out of 2 for other garage dwellers (boy 1 and wife ) and 2 out of 2 for the one lent to boy 2 and his girlfriend in London. Hmm I seem to have 8 bikes…..

    3 out of 4 for me, must be a record!

    About 40%, but 2 “only” need flats fixing.
    There’s the one which spewed me off a week ago, and a couple of wrecks in a friends garage. Do those still count as bikes?

    Mine: all of them.
    Kids: BMX needs new brake spring after Son1 fancied “Brakeless” and snapped the spring. KMX needs a new rear derailleur – which is on the list.

    3 from 3 here…. But that doesn’t stop me wanting to increase the stable. N+1 and all that!!
