    How Many Bikes (ss/fg) Do You Have?

    I've decided that I need/want a new FG just to mess around on.

    But I'm curious about who has multiple bikes that essentially serve the same purpose? I had two fixies but I gave one to my friend (I'm a nice guy like that) and now I'm thinking I need to get another one, in case something happens to my only one.

    So the question is, how many FG/SS bikes that serve the same purpose do you have?

    Let's just say I have not a lot of space.

    Not to mention spare parts.

    1 Fixed / SS, starting my second build next week will end up with 2 SS / fixed, but that seems slightly redundant, so I'll probably just sell the first one.

    I bet that Gran Sport looks amazing. What is your polo bike?

    The Gran Sport is a pretty little thing... have removed the rack and fitted a Fizik saddle since I took this pic... will probably be selling her if I find a good home.



    The polo bike is an old Canadian Tire road bike...

    I can only have one at a time due to space constraints... plus it ain't exactly a cheap hobby.

    I have one bike. It's my fixed gear. By the end of the year I'll be building a second bike. Also fixed.

    used to have a bunch but have slowly down sized. I only have the following:

    2008 Schwinn Madison SS. (SWEET!)
    1989 Schwinn Paramount (Series 5)
    1971 Schwinn Sport Tourer
    1973 Schwinn Super Sport
    197? Schwinn LeTour III
    1998 K2 ProFlex MTB (full carbon frame)
    1938 Derby Cruiser (not all orig but still a looker and a pleasure to ride.)
    197? Ross Apollo 5 Speed (20 inch muscle bike, completely orig, almost showroom new)

    I love them all and use them for different terrains and riding styles.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    1 Kilo fixed that serves as my all weather/ fat rubber and risers / comfy fun bike.
    1 Felt TK2 that is my fast/ non-lockup/ hope to hit the track soon bike.
    1 Rossin road bike for long trips and when I don't feel like fixed.
    1 SS converted Trek MTB that is honestly the most comfortable, and a really fun city bike/ winter ride.

    Most are in my sig...

    More guitars than bikes.

    I suppose, technically, I have two Surly Steamrollers. One maroon, and one cream. But the creamroller's currently in the hands of a bike thief. (The maroon one is its replacement.)

    I have more bikes but the question was how many fg / ss bikes do you own ?

    The number of fg bikes now equals the number of bikes with gears.
