What bikes have you got?
Embarrassingly I miscounted. Actually there are 9 bikes for the two of us. We (obviously) like Schwinn frames; have picked up Fetish frames because they tend to be cheap and so far no real complaints with them. Never ridden any serious cyclocross (still a dream) so use those bikes for commuting/bad weather. I have gotten really into using the singlespeed (with cadence) for interval training this year.
1) 2001 Schwinn Supersport (8 speed Sora triple ) set up 'permanently' on fluid trainer. We don't have cold winter here but there are uncomfortable or wet days when it is nice to have a bike on a trainer.
2)2003 KHS CX100 Cyclocross frame (Steel with rear shock); I rebuilt from cyclocross to singlespeed with 48 x 16, has older Velomax Circuit Comp wheels that still have a great ride.
3)2007 Fetish Attack Track frame singlespeed/fixie (also 48 x 16), with flipflop hub; husband's bike and build.
4)2007 Ibex Cyclocross, 10 speed Ultegra compact (husband's bike).
5)2007 Fetish Freccia frame built as time trial/triathlon bike, 2007 Campy Centaur gruppo, Oval Concepts Jetstream Fork and clip on aero bars (another of husband's bikes/builds).
6)2001 Schwinn Supersport Factory (made in USA frame) 9 speed Ultegra, road bike.
7)2007 Fetish Position Cyclocross 9 speed Dura Ace (my bike and build).
8)Another 2001 Schwinn Factory built up as time trial/triathlon bike; with custom paint job, Ultegra 9, Profile Design T2 base and aero bar; Neuvation C 38 Clincher carbon wheels.
9) Just finished (and proud of) the rebuild of my 2002 KHS Flite 2000 road bike. It has custom paint (black with red/green flame pattern) by Jack Kane of Jack Kane Racing Cycles in North Carolina; 2008 Campy Centaur (with carbon crank) 10 speed gruppo; Deda Newton bar/stem; King (red) headset; Neuvation R 28 aero wheels; Vredstein Fortezza (red) tires.
I am finishing grad school (Masters in therapeutic recreation) so don't have serious money at this time which is why no top of the line parts. I look for quality at reasonable price (have 5 sets of Neuvation wheels, for example and have been pleased with both products and service). I have tended to recycle/rebuild rather than buy new (last had a 'real' job in 2003 which is why some of the frames date from that time). I don't know others in this area who do much work on bikes (it may be obvious from the length of this response that I don't get much opportunity to talk about bikes in detail) but I enjoy messing about despite making many mistakes and sometimes getting frustrated. I actually started learning about and working on bikes in response to what I perceived as crappy treatment by employees (males) at some (big) bike shops. However, my experiences with owner operated local shops in various locales have been overwhelmingly positive especially given that I don't buy much from them (lots of ebay purchasing) and only show up when I have had a problem doing something.
thanks for asking....
