I'm up to six, with no turning back:
Van Dessel Country Road Bob 44x16t
Motobacane Mirage 52x16t
Motobacane Nomade 52x18t
Lotus Elan (being rebuilt, was 42x18t)
Schwinn Le Tour 42x16t
Miyata OneTen 52x19t
I want at least a couple more, and then maybe a fat tired SS.
Schwinn Paramount track 47x17 (varies)
Slingshot fixed. 46x16 (varies)
Raliegh 3spd convert "Sir Walter" 46x18 (never varies)
Marinoni TT convert 46x17 (varies)
More to come. No threat, just a promise.

I own 2:
Specialized Langster (48x18; 69 gear inches)... despite the "Lamester" comments, it's a nice bike... it's what got me started on a fixed gear and besides, in 20 years when it's a "classic" it'll be cool
80s Schwinn World Sport beater (40x15; 69 gear inches)
I want to build a cross bike into a fixie as well. I think a fixed Crosscheck would be rad.
01-06-05, 01:46 PM
Basso Coral, 48x15 (84" gear, was until recently 48x18)
I'll build a second one in Japan once I get going on the Keirin documentary stuff. Probably a dedicated track bike.
A Bianchi road conversion, and a Nishiki road conversion. My next one will be a true track frame.
01-06-05, 01:53 PM
01-06-05, 01:54 PM
Two- One for snow and muck, one for everything else.
A Merckx pista and a Concord road conversion.
01-06-05, 01:56 PM
Even that's too many.
01-06-05, 01:57 PM
2, one Fuji Track with 77" gear and one Fuji Tivoli with 67" and all the bad weather acoutrements.
Soon I'll have the parts to build up a 26" FG rear and I'll have a FG mtb as well.
01-06-05, 02:07 PM
I have Two. One I would leave chained to a pole and one I would not let out of my site.
01-06-05, 02:21 PM
if i ever have kids, i'll only have one of them, too.
GT Track bike - Fixed at 46x15
Peugeot Ventoux - SS at 42x14
Surly 1x1 - Fixed at 38x16
The Purple Mistake - Fixed at 42x16
Cross Check - Fixin to be built
01-06-05, 02:31 PM

01-06-05, 02:32 PM
1.5 as well
01-06-05, 02:54 PM
De Bernardi track 49x17
Shogun fixie 44x16
Centurion Le Mans 52x18, currently a SS, but will probably have its freewheel removed again soon.
i have just a frame and a dream for now-soma rush!
01-06-05, 03:08 PM
1.5 as well
got any spare parts?
01-06-05, 03:09 PM
14,873,907 and counting
01-06-05, 03:49 PM
I'll always only have one, but its never the same bike. I had a schwinn world sport conversion. Then an IRO. Now i have a schwinn le tour conversion. All in 2004. But, as soon as i find out how much shipping is gonna be i will be starting on a gitane track frame. I promise to stick with that one for at least a year.
01-06-05, 03:50 PM
2.5, soon to be 2 (i hope)
01-06-05, 04:11 PM
maruishi track- almost done, i swear.
01-06-05, 04:32 PM
i have 3 plus a ground up track frame that taunts me because it has no parts yet. i'm waiting until i refinish and rebuild my guerciotti road bike before i build it up.
bianchi pista - 48:14
iro - 48:16
peugeot conversion - 48:16
01-06-05, 04:42 PM
Iro the black 1
80's Bianchi track bike.
01-06-05, 05:08 PM
1.5 here, too. i've got a Dura-Ace 10mm pitch group that's waiting for me to get some money for another frame.
01-06-05, 05:18 PM
Romani and fuji
01-06-05, 05:21 PM
I never counted.
01-06-05, 05:49 PM
Centurion Accordo conversion. Still needs brake cables run and a seat post. Oh yeah and a crankset/bb. So maybe I should've answered .3 lol
 Oh yeah, need a fixed cog and lockring too. .2?
01-06-05, 06:10 PM
Just one, Puch Austro Daimler Vent Noir, 60 cm of chromed 531 steel, with a straight bladed chrome fork, bullhorns, and a 50/16 gearing. Apparently that model Vent Noir has some kind of special treatment that makes it immune to scratching, haven't tested it yet.
01-06-05, 06:19 PM
1973 Peugeot UO8
1973 Peugeot PX10E
one, but i wouldn't mind a few more.
01-06-05, 07:44 PM
1, my blue volkscycle (52X18 I like 'em big...)
01-06-05, 07:57 PM
I own seven you're all inferior!
Ya Tu Sabes
01-06-05, 08:58 PM
Just one complete, a converted Fuji (http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2004/michtom.htm) (but with flat bars and 23s, running 42x15). But in the basement there are two in larval form: a no-name black steel frame that will get a new paint job and become my pretty bike (since the Fuji is the every-day workhorse) and a silver BMX frame with a full-sized fork, impossibly long seatpost and sissy bar supporting a funky banana seat, and rear triangle chopped to make it accomodate a full-sized wheel. Some day, these will be #2 and #3 . . .
01-06-05, 09:19 PM
I never counted.
Well I stopped counting after my first million, baby, and I never looked back. I never knew public school teaching would pay off so well!
1.5 as well
my baby, a follis road conversion; and an aluminum cannondale mtb frame to become a ss as soon as i find a fork and finish the drive chain
For me not that many ..about 4..LOL
ALL TRACK BIKES!!
Technically, none at the moment. A Bianchi track frame, who's wheels and bars are on my brother's Falcon conversion for a winter bike. Maybe it's half of one?
01-06-05, 11:21 PM
1 converted Miyata
1 nearly converted Trek
1 IRO Mark V frame on the way
I had three, now I'm down to one. I've always only ridden one at a time anyway.
Currently a Pista with mods (and even more to come).
Fuji Team conversion
01-07-05, 01:25 AM
1982 Schwinn World Sport, a 58cm 10 speed given to me by my boss, named Professor Plum, my favorite bike. 42x16.
1980s Schwinn Sprint, bought at a thrift store for $15. Smaller bike (47cm I think). Hooked it up with a paint job and some Nashbar riser bars, stem and longer seat post. Winter beater. 40x19.
1- Bianchi Super Pista 1982, 42x15, trackbike
2- Chebici Cyclocross, 42x16, for winter (studded tires etc..)
3- Ishiwata, converted roadbike, 52x19
01-07-05, 02:00 AM
Geez, given the forthcoming road bike (@$2K+) and the folding bike...and the mountain bike, I think that one FG bike is PLENTY, unless I want a DeeVorce!!!
01-07-05, 02:47 AM
Once 80's Bianchi conversion and a pile of parts without a frame.
01-07-05, 06:48 AM
I own one. An '89 Trek running 93 gear inches. I'm well happy with it but would like to build a pursuit framed bike...
01-07-05, 07:01 AM
one, but i'd love to get a roadie SS!
2 - steamroller and '75ish raleigh conversion
01-07-05, 08:50 AM
two - a fairly honest pista setup, and a homemade el cheapo short gear all weather city commuting i-will-work-harder conversion.
I have about 1/3 of a fixie right now. In search of a rear wheel (including cog and lock ring) if anybody has one plus a crank and BB etc.
01-07-05, 09:25 AM
2 for now
'73 atala road conversion fixed...big and comfy
iro mark v
have to build a ss for the girlfriend before i build my mountain fix...she has spoken
01-07-05, 10:39 AM
One but with a flip/flop hub. Both sides fixed (48x16 and 48x19).
