I have an old tandemn I'm rebuilding to ride around the neighborhood for fun!
I'm also building up a SS, but it's a SS mtn bike!

A road bike, a light touring/cyclocross bike, and a touring bike.
I'd've added cyclocross bikes to the poll; a lot of people use them as general-purpose heavy-duty road bikes.

Hybrid and Road.
See signature; 4 road bikes, one mountain bike. All see both general transportation and recreational use, and all but the Bianchi have rear racks.
1) long-wheelbased Reynolds 531 classic
2) basic "10-speed"; cyclocross knobby tyres & gearing
3) general-purpose all-rounder
4) club / sport / male midlife crisis
Two road bikes: Trek 5200 and REI Novara Triompho. I'm thinking of selling the REI and getting a hardtail mtb instead.

Wow, looks like majority rides road or road racing bikes. Only one bmx and one recumbent out of 73 people voted.
Now we can use this as statistical information, to back up ideas during discussions :D
MTB on slicks on weekdays, offroad on weekends .... thinking about getting a roadie.

My regular road ride is a 1985 Ross, built in Allentown, PA. Weighs 32 pounds, ready to roll. Still looks like new.

Well, I ride two depending on the circumstances. A road bike for my main axe, and a very comfy hybrid for commuting and for when I need to haul things around.
2001 Litespeed Tuscany for weekday and weekend rides.
1999 Raleigh R600 for commuting, errands, and weekend rides.
One MTB: Trek 6500
One touring: Trek 520

Road: Trek 5000; Touring: Novara Randonee; Other: Meridian Cascade Road Tandem.

Up to about 35 miles, up and down hills, or stop & go, comfort ("city") bike.
Go a long ways, long wheelbase recumbent.
I have 1 road bike, 1 crummy old mountain bike, 1 bmx bike. I don't really ride my bmx bike anymore and the mountain bike just isn't fun. The road bike is my favorite out of the three.

A Lemond Nevada City for the road and a heavily upgraded Schwinn Moab 3 (before the big sale, of course) as a race bike for the dirt. I ride the Lemond as training for my mountain bike races. With member Middi-Zon recently getting his Giant OCR, I now have a riding partner for the road training as well.

'02 Trek 800 Sport, designated a 'comfort mountain' bike. No suspension save for the Post Moderne seat-post I had installed at the time I purchased it. It came with big ol' knobbies that I replaced with Invert 2 tires to save myself a gear. Upright riding position so that I can catch all the wind. Incredi-bell, Black Cat 5-LED headlight, Mountain Mirrycle rear-view mirror, and full fenders complete the ensemble. It looks like a mountain bike just as much as I look like Queen Latifah.
I love my bike. :D
