Just curious who's got what...
prehaps peeps post of what they have exactly?
i.g. the one is ccm bike
the two is dahon curve xl
My bike situation is very fluid.
* commute on extremely modded R20
* Swift self-built is nearing completion
* Light-weight hard-tail MTB w/ XT componentry, thinking about selling it
* just sold Giant CRX2
* eyeing a Moulton
So it looks like I might end up with only small-wheeled bikes.

Complete list on my profile for anyone who cares. Although I end up riding my folders most of the time, I don't think I'd get rid of my Bianchi road bike; it's just a very nice bike to ride. I may give my 16 year old hybrid away to something like a church rummage sale. It's actually in very good condition, but I don't need all these bikes, and no sensible person would pay much for it.
You're right, I do have more bikes than I need.
2000 PBW full suspension with Rohloff and Schmidt hubs
1977 Jim Redcay custom
1971(?) Schwinn Racer
Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra slightly upgraded for comuting (rear rack, fenders, lights, etc...);
Dahon Curve D3 slightly upgraded for performance (clipless pedals, no rear rack, fenders, etc...)
When I put 1000Miles on the Curve I will give myself a gift: Bike Friday Tikit with Rohloff or a Twinky Brompton/Merc (or something equivalent, available in the market by then).
'68 Royal Enfield Revelation ( ISO 451) non-folding
'73 Raleigh five-Twenty (ISO 520) folder
'72 Gitane TdF
'72 Carlton Giro d'Italia
'70 Carlton Professional
'73 Motobecane Grand Jubile
2005 Carrera Delphino
Stable is actually too crowded.
Um probably about two too many folders, but there you go...
- Mezzo d9 (the workhorse)
- Raleigh Stowaway (in lovely rusty green waiting for strip down, paint job and suspension fork to be fitted - note to self, get on with it...)
- 'nother Raleigh 20 in gorgeous metallic fawn and white (waiting for a nice summer's day to ride...)
- Downtube IXFS (languishing in work bike rack but waiting for an excuse to take it for a ride - maybe next week...)
But I do quite fancy one of those nice monocoque Birdys to add to the stable (but only if I can score one on my cycle to work scheme - £1200 is perhaps too much to spend on a fourth reserve bike)Originally Posted by matt52
DIANA - DT FS IV: Orange, will be going on diet as soon as MOTO is finished his
DAYTON - DT FS IV: Black, girlfriend's or so she says... I believe both were put on my credit card!
MOTO - FS 27sp, XT'd out: Currently in pieces and is iffy on the diet, will be put back together soon with a few less pounds hopefully
MAURI - Kona (very early 90's) with Morini FM124 engine, collecting a lot of dust, maybe put on to WHITIE.

Strange - this thread has been viewed 333 times, yet only 59 have taken the poll. I wonder why so many have looked, but few have contributed to the poll.

Up until having a 32 mile RT commute through the south Bronx, just a folder. I need more speed to get through Mott Haven alive. Still love my folder though. I added an early 80's fuji road/touring bike, SA-WEET!!!!!!!! (Only 150 plus shipping), you can see pics here: http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php...ke%2C+new+bike
