Your most-ridden bike?
By mileage – My Sensa road bike, it’s my summer bike and has running as taken up a large part of this year the only big rides I’ve done have been on this. Worryingly, my PX Kaffenback which lives entirely on the turbo is a rather close second place.
By number of uses – Kona MinUte cargo bike. 2 or 3 times per week it goes down to the shops and is used to run errands. It’ll be overtaken by my Paddy Wagon which is my commuter bike for 3 or 4 days per week but as I only got half way through the year so it’s not there yet.Posted 3 months agotheboatmanMember
Drop bar elderly Roadrat, resplendent in an immortal 9 speed mix of 105 and XT,cable disc’s,full guard’s and 28mm road tyres. Does my commuting duties, and in the dark month’s, evening and weekend riding. My MTB only now really comes out on sunny cold and frosty weekend day’s. I mainly revert to the road over winter. The Rat has been with me about 10 year’s, and I got it second hand. Can’t really say I love it, but somehow has seen many other bikes come and go, so it must have something.Posted 3 months agohardtailonlySubscriber
Saracen Hack – bought second hand 4.5 years ago. Daily commuter, often taking in a mixed-terrain route. Road bike. Thrasher around local trails. Tourer (for my son’s trips to the Western Isles). Dirty Reiver ‘weapon’. 3 Peaks CX mount. Must have covered in excess of 20k km’s in that time. Must have spent double what I paid for it on replacement / worn out parts. Always been just a wee bit too long, but we’ve adapted to each other in that time. Its just been a really, really dependable and enjoyable bike …Posted 3 months agoedhornbySubscriber
Kona Ute – do school run with kids, then ride the rest of the way to work. indestructible.
the commuter track bike comes next for the days (Monday) that I’m not ferrying the kids
road and mountain on the weekends only
I have a plan to flog both the ute and the track (or dismantle) and get CX because the kids are just about walking agePosted 3 months agowoody2000Subscriber
Commuter bike > HT MTB > FS MTB
In the 4 years or so I’ve been keeping track of these things, my commuting bike (MK1 RoadRat mainly, other bikes have come and gone) has done twice the miles of all the others pretty much.
456 (RIP) 2,652.6
I need to do more MTBing! 🙂Posted 3 months ago13thfloormonkMember
Most ridden by miles is the Trek Super
flycommuter which has also been standing in as a road/gravel bike and my CX race bike (amazing what a change of tyres can do…).
Rapidly catching up however is the commuter, which I ride far more often but typically only 40-50km a day.
Think the Trek will edge further ahead after this weekend, got a 150km loop planned (snow permitting) but the Charge should close that gap for Christmas.Posted 3 months agomildboreMember
My 10 year old Santa Cruz Superlight has seen most use this year as it’s my local woodland bike and is helping inspire me back to fitness after illness. My Bronson isn’t far behind but will always be used less because it needs techy trails to be worth riding and it’s pretty flat round here. Road bike only gets a look in if I get dragged out by mates, never my choicePosted 3 months agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Surly Disc Trucker.
Expected just to use it for camping weekends and the odd big trip.
Thing is, it fits so well and is so much fun to ride, despite the weight, that I use it for pretty much everything.
Got home from work about 8 last night and rode it around the block, less than five minutes, just because it’s fun.Posted 3 months agomadxelaSubscriber
29er hardtail from big xc trip and commuting, but the 27+ rigid has won most of the MTB time..and may catch up as winter commuter now that its slop offroad, and frosty on.
Makes me feel good to realise that the road, cx, full suss and brompton have all been ridden a fair amount this year too….right tool for the job and all that 🙂Posted 3 months agosirromjSubscriber
26″ daily commute bike, trigger’s broom. Since last time I posted a picture of it here, have removed the dropper post, and gone from 26-36-48t to a single 34t front gearing. And added lights + frame bag for battery. Might add mudguards if I start getting wet more than once a week.Posted 3 months ago
