A short time ago I had 7

-- 2 mtn bikes
-- 1 fixie
-- 1 racing bicycle
-- 1 older racing bicycle
-- 1 sport touring bicycle
-- 1 tandem

I no longer have the older racing bicycle, and I will be attempting to sell the tandem and one of the mtn bikes soon.

And then I'll need to build up the collection again here in Australia!!

Just cut down from 13, but that included my original college Peugeot (more than 35 years ago) and my first two junk mountain bikes, both from the early '80s. They were worth so little that I didn't bother selling or donating them when I got new ones over the years.
What I have left:
Rivendell Atlantis, my mid-life crisis bike when I turned 60. Bought the frame and built it up mainly with parts I had on hand.
Rivendell Rambouillet. Didn't need it, but I got such an incredible deal used that even my wife agreed I should buy it.
Cannondale M1000 mountain bike, present for my 50th birthday. VERY heavily used for about five years; rarely ridden now, but I live a mile from the Tahoe National Forest and I like to have an MB around.
Downtube folder (Downtube is the brand name). Bought it pretty cheap on a whim. Fits in the trunk, and it's rideable enough for 10-15 mile vacation excursions and day rides.
Old Bridgestone MB3 mountain bike converted to commute duty, with fenders and racks. Had this one for 20 years.
Mid-'80s Trek 620 touring bike, converted to singlespeed. This was my main ride for five years before I got the Atlantis.
I'm probably done buying bikes, unless I get a recumbent someday. I'm 64, and I don't have enough time left to wear out even my extra tires, let alone use up a bike.

I have:

4 regular riders


2 project bikes that I plan to fix up for myself (to add to the 4 regular riders above)


3 project bikes that will probably be flipped


3 parts bikes that will never be intact again (the pictured one I crashed and bent the frame)


12 total, I guess

Twenty plus and 2 tandems.

I won't waste the bandwidth on pictures of individual bikes but here are a couple of group shots to give you an idea of some of what I have.

A few more can be found on my Blog.

8 for me, two for the wife:

I'm going to sell 4 of mine because I'm not using them. I also need to justify building a recumbent streamliner like this: http://home.comcast.net/~jeff_wills/vector/vector.htm

Man, I'd be afraid to ride a bike with as much seatpost sticking out as some of those. I can feel my junk going under the brake bridge now...

Number 2 was originally a 2006 Lemond Poprad. The frame failed this spring.

This was right about the time Trek was telling Greg Lemond to GTFO and STFU. So they replaced it with the Gary Fisher Presidio frame and carbon fork. While waiting for the replacement I bought the Yeti. When I got the Fisher I rebuilt it with a flatbar. I feel more confident interacting with traffic with a flatbar for my commute.

Number 3 is a 2006 Cannondale F4000SL. It is my mountain bike. It just happened to have slicks on it for commuting for awhile.

Number 4 is a 2001 Rocky Mountain Vertex Team Only with a BionX PL350 electric assist system. The orginal suspension fork blew up, I replaced the front fork with a rigid one. It became my regular commuting bike for a few years. Last year I was toying with the idea of getting a gas powered scooter. I was commuting less by bike since it was using valuable energy that I needed for my "real rides" in the evening. Particularly on interval days. My LBS had a BionX system set up on a bike and I gave it a try. Bought one the next day. It lets me ride at 35kph/22mphish for the same effort it takes to ride at 25kph/16mph. I can soft pedal to work for my commute and not use up as much energy for my evening rides. You should try one. It doesn't make you lazy. I pedal as usual, you just end up going faster for the same effort.

i only have one, a 1982 fuji 12 speed racer. i am not into consumption and see no need for multiple bikes.
anyway i have to stretch my dollars and use my bike as essential transportation instead of an expensive car.
my bike gets me from point a to point b and that is all a bike is suppose to be for-cheap economical transportation.
