    Alright, think I'm actually gonna go for having just 5 bikes, and now I have all 5. 4 are just frames at the moment though.

    1. 1993 Giant ATX 780 - Awesome do-everything bike
    2. 2011 Masi Vincere - Road bike, just a frame and a few random parts right now
    3. 1995 Fuji Discovery - I have no idea how I will build this up... Maybe a really classy looking IGH bike.
    4. 1994 Barracuda A2E - Polo bike, I might actually have enough parts to build it up
    5. Late 70's Motobecane Super Mirage Mixte - This will be a hideously awesome winter bike, 26" front, 700c rear, probably a 2 speed kickback hub, and garish colors everywhere.

    I am pretty close to my ideal 5 now.
    1. Currently have a cannondale caad 3 that converted nicely to a tri bike. Would rather have a kestrel air foil.
    2. Currently have a 1971 peugeot U-08 which is converted into a fixed gear. Would rather have masi fixed.
    3. My touring bike is a 1973 Raleigh Supercourse which I built up from a frame and fork with 70's shimano 600 Arabesque group and coldset to fit modern 8 speed wheels a brooks b-17 and velo orange rando bars. I love this bike. Just need to get a rack and panniers on it.
    4. Don't have it yet but may pick up on friday a Jamis eclipse. Can't go wrong with a sub 18 pound steel bike. I have wanted one for so long.
    5. All I need now is a designated winter bike. I am thinking an old Reynolds 531 trek that was made for 27 inch wheels so I would have the clearance to put some studded tires and fenders on it.

    It is eclectic... I need to trim things down and would like to get back down to 11... if people would stop giving me bikes it would be easier.

    I never count the tandem as being "my bike" as it was an engagement gift to my wife and this is a keeper, like her.

    I only need three:

    1. the long-distance bike - a long-wheelbase recumbent (Cycle Genius Falcon) which I already have. For long wandering rides, the riding comfort is simply fantastic. If I could only have ONE bike, this would be what I'd want.

    2. the city/commuting bike - A RANS crank-forward bike. I already own a Fusion a few years old, but a Sequoia or Dynamik might do better--they weren't available ~6 years ago when I got the Fusion). I had to make my own rear rack to attach grocery baskets but the racks they have now are said to be better than in the past. This bike handles like an upright bike, but is still much more comfortable to ride (though not as comfortable as #1).

    3. the off-road bike ,,,,,, I'd like a fat-tire (Pugsly-style) 2WD bike for MTB riding. Nobody makes that though, so I'd have to do it myself. I feel that some form of hydraulic drive would work far better for this than the existing 2WD systems I have seen. And I don't really have anywhere nearby convenient for off-road riding, so this isn't a major priority anytime soon. Hopefully someday though....

    Currently I have these bikes:
    14" 2004 Fisher Opie freeride/urban assault MTB
    17" 2008 Redline Monocog 29er MTB
    18" 1998 Serrota T-Max Commuter MTB
    17" 1996 Klein Rascal SS MTB
    52cm 2008 Salsa Campion aluminum/105 Road bike
    52cm 2010 Pake Rum Runner FG/SS Road bike
    52cm 2010 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Fiber Road bike
    53cm/50cm 1988 Santana Arriva Road Tandem


    But if I had to cut back I would probably keep:
    Fisher Opie
    Serrota T-Max
    Klein Rascal SS
    Salsa Campion
    Pake FG/SS
    Just your average 'high-functioning' lunatic, capable of passing as 'normal' for short periods of time.....
