    How many Bicycles do you have?

    How many bicycles do you have and has anyone you live complained about you having so many bicycles?

    I currently only have one Bicycle but, I am sure I will have a minimum of six bikes in time.

    I have four bikes:

    - Nice LeMond road bike for recreation
    - Old Centurion road bike set up as a fast commuter
    - Specialized Sirrus hybrid with fenders for wet weather
    - Beefy (and cheap) Giant Boulder with fenders and serious studded tires for the snow

    Not sure ... that would require walking around the place and counting them all.

    Last time I counted there were more than 20 bicycles between the two of us, but that was a few months ago, and may have changed.

    And if Rowan complained about me having too many bicycles, I'd just laugh because I think he has more than me.

    2 mountain bikes (mine & the wife's), 1 customized cruiser (mine), and 1 1980's woman's mountain bike that has been stripped of its derailleurs and now forced to use just one gear even though the rest still exist (made for the wife, she wants a motor on it eventually). I would love to one day add an old ratty trike for bigger trips to the store that the baskets on my mountain bike can't handle, and a folding bike because I think they are really cool.

    I have a record low of 2 bikes built (down from 4) 1 built road, 1 built mountain, 1 parted out cyclocross, and enough components to build 3 bikes out of
    I had to re-learn how to walk once, but never needed to re-learn how to ride a bike. Cyclist for life.

    Fifteen... although I am selling my hybrid and one bike is a tandem.

    I don't need any more bikes either.

    I have ten.

    1 really old mountain bike
    1 hybrid
    1 touring
    1 TT
    3 really old road bikes
    1 old road bike
    2 newer road bikes (1 carbon and the other is a Bianchi, just because I never owned a Bianchi)

    I want 2 more, a custom touring (Waterford) and a folder or maybe a ti road bike.

    But I really should get rid of some of these other bikes.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I have 5 (see list below) and I now have all the parts on hand to build a sixth. It will be a back-up commuter bike and rolling spare parts.

    My SO has 6 bikes (I think, I may have lost track).

    All of our bikes are nice and very rideable. We don't mtn bike much though, as that involves loading up the car. We'd rather just ride out the door on road or commuter bikes.

    I have four. I've actually considered selling two and keeping just the LHT and the single-speed.

    My wife and daughter each also have bikes, so six in the house.

    I keep repeating that to myself, and yet I've bought another two in the last six months. Ah well, every family has its share of Evangelists, Sexual Deviants, Philosophy Majors, and Drug addicts.






    And I'm afraid I've also got two more '86 Schwinn Peloton frames (like the white one above), waiting to be built up. But that's it; no more; I swear this time! (slaps forearm repeatedly.)

    I've got my Trek hardtail rigged for commuting...

    (I've since removed the cheesy front rack)

    And I've got a Bianchi folding bike from the 70s that I'm cleaning up and tuning up (probably still need a new chain, and 5 solid hours of time to get it up to snuff). Then I have my son's 10 speed and a 16" dahon folder, plus the mountain bike that we're picking up for him and the old broken mountain bike that I apparently keep forgetting to take home from work... still need a road bike for me though.

    My wife complained a little about me having 5...but she's got 4. If you do the math, we're both one short of what we each should have.

    I have four, which is about the limit of both my apartment and budget.

    2006 Trek Portland -- Primary commuter and grocery getter
    2000 Trek 1000 -- backup commuter and grocery getter
    1999 Schwinn Peloton -- fast ride fun bike
    1996 Litespeed Classic -- long ride fun bike
