    I have 2 bikes, my wife has 1... but my daughter, who just turned 8 has 4 bikes! It's garage sale time! Actually, I think I'll just donate them.

    I did vote two, that is two operational bikes in my possession.

    I actually own four bikes, but one has a broken frame and the other has been indefinitely loaned to a friend. (I don't really expect, nor want it back)

    1) Bianchi racer that's older than me. It's an '87 model, very light and fast - a dream to ride.
    2) Trek hybrid converted to a road bike/tourer.

    I commute with the Trek, but I'd like a beater road bike with milk crate .

    3 bikes for me.

    1. Road Bike
    2. Peugout MTB (needs a new chain and crank/BB fix but still rides with a slight wobble)
    3. Custom MTB (primary ride)

    I don't have a beater but I am looking into finding an aluminum bike for all weather riding. Also a nice true hybrid for riding on the skinnys with no back/shoulder soreness. My Peugout is a touch small for me as I get toe clipping once in a while if I turn too sharp an angle and my toes are stuck out but otherwise it works liek a hybrid and I can ride straight up. Still need a bike comp for that bike.

    I have 7:

    1) Main commuter, a Schwinn World Sport townie conversion.


    2) 700c cruiser, back up commuter and great bar bike, it's for sale soon to make room and get money toward a touring bike for my summer plans.


    3) 2000 Lemond Buenos Aires, my main road bike and just about my dream road bike.


    4) Specialized Langster, fixed gear fun. I ride this like a road bike, I've even done a century on it.


    5) '99 Specialized SS-Works, my only mtn bike (for now, hoping for a 29er soon), recently converted to a single speed. This bike (with gears) will hopefully get me through a dirt century this summer.


    6) The Chopper, good for bar rides, short errands, and general novelty fun.

    7) The Runt, as sold by Toys R Us a few years ago. I don't have a picture, but the wheels are about the size of a shopping cart wheel and it moves at walking pace. It's a lot of fun to jump into pools.

    Sorry about so many pics, I recently opened a flickr account.

    Currently 3: two road bikes that cost a lot, and one MTB that cost a little. I probably won't put any meaningful mileage on the MTB until a.) I get a computer for it, or b.) it starts to snow. This presumes I won't sell or throw it away in the mean time.

    JesseDuncan:I just love how "cars will be forced to cross the double yellow lines on dangerous limited visibility roads".

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    Darn. You forced me to come to grips with the reality that I am a bike-aholic. 3 race bikes (carbon, Ti, alu), 3 cross bikes (including 1 singlespeed), 3 fixed gear/ ss bikes, 2 mtb's, and 1 track dedicated bike. Then add my husband's 4-5....


    I've just come to the conclusion that - mathematically speaking - my desired number of bikes is "n + 1", where "n" is the number I currently have!

    I've got one bike that I use, and a few that are half complete messing up the garage. Ideally, I think I'd like to have five bikes:

    Fixie for messing around around town
    Touring bike, nothing fancy
    Heavy duty utility bike
    29er for trails
    Hybrid loaner bike for visitors

    Currently 3 in my possession:

    Iron Horse AT-50 90s rigid MTB (have morphed into a pretty decent commuter)
    70s Falcon San Remo Fixie Conversion (nice weather commuter)
    70s Schwinn Continental that I bought to turn into a long bike, but abandoned the project and am building it up for a broke friend in NYC

    I really want to buy a Cross Check or the like to turn into a fast commuter/light tourer in which case the Iron Horse will become a polo bike
