Alex: Correct, for $200!

If it were ONLY $200....(sigh)

I own a mountain bike and road bike as well. I ride both. I also happen to live in one of the best places for both though.

I think your fine owning two bikes. It give you the freedom that you might just want to have any day of the week.

In our house we have 6 bikes. So its just the norm to have mutiple bikes for different reasons

If it makes you feel any better I just ordered my very first road bike.

It is a custom titanium, and I feel bad because it was way more than I should have spent on a bike.

I have a single-speed mtb and a decent road bike. For commuting I use a hybrid. So that's three different bikes and I even use them all

I have 3 complete bikes...all road right now. I have 3 framesets lying here, 1 of which is about to be built up (another roadie). I have just pulled the trigger on a Surly Pugsley.

You can't have too many bikes. As was said, the correct number of bikes to own is n+1: n=number of bikes you currently own.

I think I'm up to about twenty bikes in my garage right now. Most of them are rideable and most of them are mine.

How many bikes do you have?

And you are worried about buying a second bike!


Buy the road bike and enjoy it.
