    How many Bikes do you currently own?

    Some may say i'm a addict. I say each one has its purpose. My wife says i'm crazy. LOL.
    What do you guys think.

    1. road bike=racing and training
    2. cross bike= cross fun
    3. fixed gear= Training during the winter
    4. steel road bike= Charity rides sunday long rides
    5. Track bike= Fun!
    6. Mountain bike= The whole reason I ride a bike!

    and couple spare frames.

    Probably because he has just one ass for the saddle, & only one foot for each pedal. I think it would be remarkably difficult to ride more than one mountain bike at a time...so why have more than one?

    Haha I know. I was trying to set him up to answer his own question by saying something along the lines of "For different kinds of riding." so I could set him straight that not everyone has multiple kinds of mountain bike trails in their area. Because for what I have in my immediate area, one FS XC bike is more than sufficient. (but then again, I would mind having a Ti hardtail for some of the smoother trails..)

    Would my Santana Tandem count as 1 1/2 since one bike but it takes 2 to ride? Well one can ride it, but I do not recommend it?

    One mountain bike (same one for about 10 years too) and one road bike. That's all I really need.

    1 FS, 1 owned HT, and 1 HT that the owner says to have fun with.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    1) Nashbar full rigid Mountain bike. Pictures to be posted shortly

    2) 1985 Univega Super Strada road bike.

    3) My early 80's Schwinn Mirada ATB. Came with 650b rims. It's been converted to 700c rims, V-brakes, and 8 speed rear cassette. This is the bike I ride when I am going to be locking it up for a while out of view. Normal pedals on it so's I can use it for general errands. Heavy & not particularly nimble. Works better than it has a right to as a city bike. $25.00 off Craigslist.

    There's a 2007 Hardrock frame in my garage, a warranty replacement from Specialized. Studying the feasibility of turning it into a cyclocross-ish bike

    There's always room for a dj bike to hone your bike handling skills in the sub-erbon jungle.

    I've got DH, AM (heavy), AM (lite), and 4X bikes and enjoy the variety.

    True. I used to have a Redline Proline Expert that I fiddled with for a while after I quit racing, but I outgrew it at around 14. Sold it last summer...might have to throw together a budget DJ for my next build (or just buy one from chainlove...that's one of the few good things they still sell). I actually do have a really good BMX track about 15 minutes from the house where I used to race when I was a kid.

    Oh & for the sake of contributing to the topic, I have a 2001 GF Wahoo--fully rigid by sturdy enough to manage--& 90% of a FS KHS XC bike.

    I guess if you include my girlfriends bike.

    4 full and 3-5 fractions.

    2006 Specialized Allez - Road Bike
    2006 Giant FCR (Dropbar Conversion) - Touring Bike
    2010 GT Avalanche 3.0 Disc - MTB
    1982(ish) Open Road 10 - Road Bike (Comfort Bar Conversion)

    A whole bunch of parts and some frames lying around to build up at some point.

    But I did however just move into a newer bigger house with plenty of room for more bikes.
