N-3

My bike fund is flush - what to buy? The Fuji 10 speed double fit me but I kept the Colnago instead. The custom Alan shorter was too small and the Jamis was built for a coworker's wife.

Very nice, how many does that make now. It seems like everytime you post you have another bike. I wish I could do it.

Nice collection of bikes. I think I would only call that N-1 or possibly N-2. I definitely would not count a bike I built for someone else as part of my N count. If the too small bike was one you had planned to use for yourself but then found it was too small then I would count it. But if you bought it with the intention of flipping it, I would not count it. But then that's just how I do it. Free country and all that...
