    How many bikes do you own?

    This was supposed to be a poll... but posting polls doesn't seem to be working right now. Sorry. Delete this thread?

    Just wondering how many bikes you personally own and ride (not counting other bikes that live in your garage, like your kids' bikes, spouses' bike)

    I am down to 3 bikes plus a bunch of parts. I just moved into a smaller apartment so I sold 3 of my other bikes.

    Currently 2. A Trek 2.3 and 7.3FX. I originally traded the 7.3 in on the 2.3, but after a few days thought it would be nice to have for running around, errands, etc., so I called the shop and took it back.

    We're in the process of doing the same for my wife--she's got a 7200WSD Hybrid, and we're getting her a 1.5WSD.

    I regularly ride two different RANS recumbents, ride less regularly a KHS tandem (with stoker/wife) and seldom ride a Novara Big Buzz hybrid.

    I just moved to a larger apartment, where I'll have room to easily store five bikes.

    I just picked up a third one last weekend. A guy in my club is selling a Ti frameset which has a very good chance of becoming bike number four.

    Currently,

    2006 Trek Portland -- primary bike, four-season commuter and grocery getter
    2000 Trek 1000 -- backup commuter and fast ride fun bike
    1999 Schwinn Peloton -- most recent acquisition, my first steel bike, for club rides
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    I find that more than two bikes is too many for me. I once had three bikes and quickly discovered that the third one ("backup" road bike) was ignored. I either rode the "primary" road bike or the commuter bike. After being neglected for about four months, I sold bike #3.

    Dunno....I will have to go ask the bride.


    She says I have 36...actually it is probably a few more than that, she doesn't remember to count frames

    I have 4 that I ride regularly, then there is her 2-3 plus the tandem. Most of mine are C&V (Classic and Vintage). Her count probably also includes some that are headed for the recyclers too. I also have two that are sold waiting to be delivered out of state, but then again I am bringing another one back on that trip so that is only a net loss of one.

    Two bikes is, indeed, the minimum number of bikes. You always have to have a backup bike.

    I have 9 but ride one on a regular basis. Depending on what is going on, I will ride three others. One at a time, of course.

    I have 9 bikes. I rode 5 of them last year.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    2009 Specialized Sirrus - My main "road" bike. I dislike drop bars, and the Sirrus is oh so comfy to ride Slower than the Allez (that I sold off), but comfier x a billion.

    2003? Access XCL frame built with all M570 Shimano LX comonents, even hubs. Currently my Erie Canal multiple use path bike, as there isnt so much mountain biking available near me. Weighs about 25lb with the manitou sx-e fork I have on it. Fork is a little soft for my curent weight, but was fine when I used to mountain bike (30lbs ago )

    1980's Schwinn Woodlands painted satiny black, my beater bike. comfy little bike to ride, slow but fun to cruise around town on. Dont mind taking it out on dry wintery roads, I paid only $30 for the bike. added fenders and a rear rack, and of course a total re-build.

    There is a 1991 Bridgestone RB-3 in the basement as well... Its my brothers bike technically but he doesnt ride it. Might fix up and sell, too small for me, and too bent over for my mom.

    Me personally ... I was once at 7, but I'm now down to the 2 I've got here in Australia, the 2 in boxes waiting to come to Australia, and the 2 I'm debating about selling. So, I guess at this moment in time, I own 6.

    Rowan has a whole bunch here, I'm not even quite sure how many there are because there are frames and wheels and all sorts of bits and pieces around, but if I had to guess, I think there are 5 fully built up bicycles and at least a couple partials.


    And if you go down to the User Assistance forum in the basement or PM Tom S., you can likely get this changed to a poll.

    I own three but only actively ride two of them. The one that I don't really ride anymore is an older steel-framed road bike from the early '80's that's hanging out in my shed; can't decide whether I want to sell it or put a little time and $$ into putting it back on the road

    6 for me, 3 for my wife, plus a half dozen hangar queens and frames.

    Five. Two I ride all the time, a commuter bike and a utility bike; a Giant Stiletto parade bike and two vintage 10 speeds.

    One of the 10 speeds is an American Eagle/Nishiki that was my main commuter for decades, and the other is a Kabuki Syd.
