I know there is not such a thing but I have been looking at my bikes and wondering what use they get.
2 mountain bikes and only one gets used. The Bianchi Grizzly is a fine bike and does everything I want it to. The "OLD" Kona Explosif rarely gets taken out so it just sits in the shed
Bikes that are never used- The wifes bike is one of them. a GT Talera that is in immaculate condition but since she now has a NEW car- it will get used even less. An old Mixte that I was given thatapart from tyre degrdation is immaculate. I keep thinking I will find someone that wants a bike- but they take one look at it and there is always something wrong with it.
I also have a couple of bikes out with my daughter- they were bought for her but she doesn't ride them. Her Husband has repaid me by putting a couple of his bikes in the shed. Well all the rides start from my house so why not keep them here. Then when he comes back with a fault on the bike after a ride- he has a handy mechanic to repair it before next week.
The tandem has not seen much use this year but that bike is fantastic to ride. Only problem is that you have to wear earplugs with it so you can't hear the stoker screaming on the downhills. Tried two new stokers this year and neither trusts me at 40 mph on the lumpy downhills. In fact one of them got to the bottom of a fast downhill and phoned his wife to come and collect him. So more effort has to go in to find some strong legged idiot to act as stoker.
Then the road bikes. My starter bike was a Giant OCR3. good bike for a newbie but have to admit that it could be bettered. It gets loaned out to other riders more than me riding so perhaps time for it to go. Then there is Boreas. MY bike and no-one rides that except for me. I have the TCR that I set up for my son-in law if he wants to ride but The TCR was bought for a reason. A cheaper bike than the Boreas that I would not be too worried about taking it out in foul weather. And due to the weather we are having- Boreas does not get out much right now.
So why the H*ll am I out looking for a new bike or frame to build up? Looking for a cyclo cross bike or Frame and forks to build up so I can get out on some of the longer distance trails in our region. Currently I use the Bianchi on those rides- but a CX bike would be better suited.
Only one thing for it- An annex to the shed.
