    Scott Contessa (bought for the missus)

    I’ll keep the Mojo, Klein and Airborne until either they or I die.

    I’ve had well over 100 bikes since 1992ish plus about another 10 or so when I was a kid.
    no way I’m listing them all tho.
    most I ever had at one time was 14 all stored in my bedroom in a Tenement flat.

    do you people ride bikes, or just buy/sell/swop/talk about ’em? or are you bike thieves?
    Get a bike that you want, alter it to suit, enjoy it…

    Get a bike that you want, alter it to suit, enjoy it…

    πŸ™„ The classic closed minded statement.

    Perhaps we can’t afford to buy the bikes we’d like to try, Perhaps we’re searching for that special something, the X-factor thats makes a bike truly exceptional. How do you know if a bike has it until you try it?

    Perhaps for some of us it’s more like "know what you want, search for it and alter it until perfect, then truly enjoy it.

    I’m there with the Mojo and the Airborne (well almost with the airborne – Need some Marta SLs)

    do you people ride bikes

    I’ve ridden 150 miles in the last 6 days. 8)

    I dont normally reply but: I’m all for people seeking out their ideal. Or trying other bikes to see if thats what they like/want.
    You appear to agree with me that you have found a bike you like, and probably tinker with it, like I do wih mine.
    (30+sat off road, 105 sun, miles that is (no willy waveing!)

    To be fair I worked in a bike shop that bought and sold S/H bikes for a fair few years and just couldn’t say no to a bargain. most of them I eventually sold on for more than I paid. Back then I rode a stupid amount.

    Colnago kid, Who cares how far you rode, did you enjoy it? Coz that’s all that matters ot me.

    do you people ride bikes, or just buy/sell/swop/talk about ’em?

    LOL! Erm yeah… I do ride bikes:

    *willy’s out*

    150 miles in the last 3 days (including 40miles this evening in the dark/hail/rain/wind @ av. 19.5mph). Oh, and then there was the 41 paid-for cycling events in the previous calendar year which include (without going into specifics) MTB races/enduros, road races, open time-trials, a rubbish sportive and a whole season of cyclo-cross.

    So yeah.

    Love bikes. Love riding and racing them.

    :O)

    Bloody hell, GW!

    Mind, working in a bike shop is cheating, just a little!

    That’s a lot of bikes…

    I’m kinda in agreement with colnagokid, quality and not quantity, though saying that I have had at least one a year since ’89.
    That’s ‘reasonable’ isn’t it?
