On the average how bikes do most people own here? I am working on another build right now and it got me to thinking. I have one complete bike built up, an extra frame lying around and a grip of parts for the second build. What about the rest of you?
Three bikes, all fixed.
Plus the frame from my first conversion just sitting there taunting me.
oh yeah, and 3 framesOriginally Posted by dolface
i got three - down from 4. i'm thinking of shipping one to my parents house for when i go down there. that will leave me with 2, which is about all i can handle.
i've discovered that mutiple bikes do me no good. i tend to ride only one bike 99% of the time and use the spare for emergencies.
3 frames with components in various states of disrepair
ive got 3....never ending projects and if i come across a really neat frame sad and mistreated ill probably start another one
1 SS mtb
1 Geared MTB
3 frames sitting around
1 dresser filled with spareparts
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
1 track bike
1 fixed conversion
1 flatland bike

1 frame waiting to become a fixie
1 fixed conversion
1 gear mtb
1 dumpster to fix up
1 track bike, 1 track frame in need of wheels, 1 road frame in need of a complete rebuild.
1 SS mtb in the works
Fixed sees all the action.
(and 1 more track frame in a few short weeks... huzzah!)
each of my bikes have specific uses. fix1 has a brake and phils, is my beater/badweather commuter/streetracer. fix2 is my track/trainingfortrack frame (and in all honesty is also my Special Occasion frame, used similar to a special occasion dress). fix3 is my super upright riding commuter. road is for really freaking long rides or days when my knees are on strike. i ride them all, and each of them goes out at least a couple times a week. i don't have a favorite, though I think I will in a few weeks...
1 track, 1 conversion and my wifes track as well(but that is hers, not mine) and working on another.
I'm curious as to how long it took everyone to get to the number of bikes you currently have?
Seven bikes, 3 sets of derailleurs.
I plead the fifth.
