Ha ha - I am the exact reverse, I have a TSR8 and a TSR30 and I am looking at a folder, a Brompton I am almost sure, as I need to be able to mix and match bike to work (14 miles) - metro home - and a loooong walk from the metro stop to home, so I was thinking a folder for that last bit. I have commuted both ways for years, 28 miles, but the ticker went crazy and I have been banned from riding (swine doctors). Turns out it is an electrical problem with no discernible reason, but with a folder I have much more flexibility and can make use of Metro.

The Moultons are separable so I can pop them in the car, and the folder can be carried in the car and on the metro at any time, they limit full-size bikes to off-commute hours.

At the moment we have four folders: the Barcelona for the rarely-cycling love of my life, the wee Chinese one with the Japanese label purchased in Beijing to avoid street hawkers, the Boardwalk D6 because it fits in a Mini Clubman without having to put the seats down, and the Friday for most all actual riding...

Love hearing your story. You are in good company here, my friend.

BTW, to correct Mulleady's report, I live in California. Bay Area, just like you.

My folderitis has since transmogrified into recumbent-itis but I still have 3 folders. A Moulton, Brompton and Downtube Mini.

5 Mezzos in the garage - one for each kid and adult. Got them all the same so that I can more redily maintain them since I am the main mechanic. Ride them many times per week (just yesterday threw it in the back of the wifey's van to save me from a sure soaking), in addition to the Vaya 2nd most, the Trek Madone once/week, and the Marin Mount Vision Pro (MTB) once/month or so (less in summer - heat).

Love to see what you've done and I for one think it is rather normal of you to have AT LEAST 3.
