    My answer - no.

    My wife's answer might be different.

    You only have too many when you think its too many.

    I have eight bikes and anticipate only one more. I think that that is my limit

    I met a person last weekend that owns approximately 200 bikes. I don't know if he has too many.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    IMHO- Yes, but so far the best minds of science and philosophy have not been able to determine that number.
    I believe it is thought to be somewhere near infinity-1.

    If you have to ask, you probably do or married.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    afaik if you have more than one bike, you have more money that you know what to do with. i have had several bikes in my time and only noticed the posture of riding being different on each one, as well as the effort required to get up to speed.
    one can decide on one bike if one is forced to due to economics

    No, bicycles are like shotguns and fishing rods; there's no such thing as too many.

    I have a road bike, an mtb, and a hybrid, and I'm thinking of getting another mtb to keep at work.

    When you run out of storage space or maintenance is overwhelming, you have too many. I'm at that point. Got 6. 3 (maybe 4) will be sold this spring. I am looking for a late 80's early 90's rigid higher-er end mountain bike. The goal is to end up with 3. Road, all-rounder hack, and MTB. Got the first two handled.

    If there is a minimum number of bikes to have I say it is 2. No matter how hard I tried one bike just can't do it all for for me. I find it a bit excessive when you have more bikes than you can count with fingers.

    Think it was in Bicycling, that I read, Robin Williams has two garages full of bikes.. He probably thinks that is about right..
