    How many?

    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.

    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.

    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

    alright to add to the topic... how often do you ride the different bikes or do you mainly ride your favorite?

    3 fix
    1 road
    (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...

    I'm curious as to how long it took everyone to get to the number of bikes you currently have?
