Five between my wife and I (but not nearly enough). I guess I will let you decide on the ownership details.

A forty or more year old Sears given to my wife so that she could ride around Milford, NH. Not really co-owned, I guess.

Two 38 pound BT City Flash city bikes built by Gazelle. New less than a year ago, and what got me passionate about this stuff.

Two custom built Vittorio road bikes - our "real" bikes.

So many bikes, so little time.

Cheers...Gary

Well I just got 2 right now ... My Specialized fsr ..and my Gt ZRX ... A few years ago , when I was fully into guitar playin' and played full time in a band , I had like ~25 guitars !! , and then one day I thought to myself "man , this is crazy !! ..I have a couple of faves , and every time I went to pick up one of my lesser faves It would have like rusty strings and stuff ... I was costing me a small fortune keepin these babies fresh !! with new strings... ahhhh thats it !! no more .....,get rid of the ones I don't play as often as I should !!...I feel the same way for bikes ......I would rather give my love to a couple of pedigree's than spend time sharing it with the mongrels of my collection ... just my thought's ....

That's nothing. My friend John has about 200 bikes. His garage and his basement is full of bikes lined up like sardines in a tin.
One has always a friend crazier than oneself.

I have 6. Two nices an operationals, one cheap (huffy type) MTB I got last week on a yard sales (that bike has less than 50 miles on it, IMO - I could not help buying it even though I cannot ride at the moment), one Schwinn 70s vintage that decorates the living room, and two junk bikes that need some work.
