Who's getting your bikes when you die?

Yes, you will die.

So, who gets your gear?

I'm sending the Dream to my dad.

The Bianchi is going to the American Diabetes Association to sell for a fundraiser.

That's one helluva a plan you've got when it's for your dad to outlive you!

Unless of course you have some weird disease, then my condolences, I guess you're pretty much hosed.

A bike rack will be cemented next to my grave, and my bikes will be locked to it.

Nobody! With my luck, I'll die in a terrible bike-crash that will leave myself and the bike twisted mass of metal and bone that cannot be seperated so we'll be burried together. Barring that, I'm still be burried with my bike, unless I have a friend or relative who could be comfortable with the idea of riding a bike that has my ashes sealed into the top-tube.

My housemate. She's the only woman I know who is tall enough to ride it. My brother's soon to be fiancee is 5 inches shorter than me, so I can't imagine why he'd object.

Actually, since I have never died, there is no statistical evidence to back up your claim (ie, I plan to live forever, and so far everything is going according to plan).

Anyway, dying is pretty low on my priority list, certainly below biking, so I haven't given the disposal of my posessions should it occur very much thought. I guess I'd just let my family squabble over them. It could be the beginning of a great family feud...except for the fact that none of them are as into biking as I am.

I'd imagine it would be my brother, though he already has more bikes than he knows what to do with. And mine would be a little on the small side for him...

Brilliant. When my parents discussed their dying plans with me, they said, "Donate what you can, burn the rest and scatter it over a cliff or something". They were talking about the bodies, but I thought for a moment they were talking about all their stuff.

My bikes will go to my children - they'll want them. Any children I have that aren't obsessed with bicycles will be put up for adoption on their 10th birthday; by then they should have shown a sufficient interest.

Donated to some one who needs it. Or put up in the garage attic for younger generations to awe at and borrow for a ride. Then when they find out the joys of biking they'll bring it out and tune it up and ride old school.
