I have a garage full of vintage road bikes that I rotate so that no-one's feelings get hurt.

This morning (annual New Years Day ride) was a 1974 Schwinn Speedster. It was mine since I was a kid and it still knows where I want to go.

When I'm commuting I ride my old road bike that I converted to a commuter. It is a 1999 Raleigh R600.
On the weekends, group rides, and organized rides, I ride my 2001 Litespeed Tuscany, full Ultegra and Look pedals.

I ride my late 80's vintage Trek 770 converted to fixed-gear as my commuter. Great fun and good for the spin. On the weekends and evening training rides I ride my Litespeed Classic, with full Ultegra 9-speed, Speedplay pedals, and Mavic Ksyrium wheelset. I also ride a Cannondale mountain bike when the need arises and a Cannondale MT1000 tandem when my wife is in the mood for a fun ride.

Hmmm?? Maybe I have too many bikes or is that really possible?

Aegis Aro Svelte is my primary single, but I also ride a R700 Raleigh, R600 Cannondale and a 2300 Trek equipped with 8 spd Dura Ace.

I'm also half of a tandem team with a Cannondale RT3000, my better half is the other half of the team!

The number and types of bike I own keeps changing, but at the moment:

* '01 Schwinn Fastback Factory w/Ultegra and Mavic Ksyriums (or Velomax Circuit Comps, when I'm in the mood)
* '97? Gary Fischer Aquila w/ Manitou SX-E fork and a random mish-mash of parts that is in the process of much needed upgrading
* two '70s-ish Schwinn Varsity 10-speeds that aren't very pretty, but make great winter bikes
* fixed-gear made from a random assortment of parts that I found lying around

These don't really count, but they're worth mentioning:

* old Huffy from when I was a kid, that fits perfectly in the trunk of my car for when I drive to school and have to park a mile away (in the interest of saving my knees, I made the addition of an 18 inch seatpost, so I look really stupid riding it)
* old 'chopper' bike - perfectly impractical, but still lots of fun

The next addition will probably be a Salsa La Cruz cyclocross frame. I finally have the money, now I just need to find a way to justify spending it.

Almost all of my riding is done on my full Ultegra equipped Schwinn Paramount. For the winter, the Fuji Roubaix is mounted on my trainer. My Fuji Sagres is parked in the garage, and will soon be joined by a Schwinn Le Tour and a Nishiki Japanese bike with a really beautiful steel lugged frame that I just picked up at a garage sale today! What a nice way to start the new year, adding to my stable!

Cheers...Gary

P.S. Mine is the yellow one.

Ohhh... I'm supposed to list my other bikes as well!

Okay... in addition to the Marinoni, there's a 1997 Specialized S-Works M2 MTB [XTR, Manitou SX-Ti fork] and a 1992 Specialized Rockhopper Sport. The latter is set-up with 1.25" slicks and I use it as my city bike.

[Yes... confession time... I was a dirtbag in a previous life...]
