Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Completely normal.
To dispel further doubt, stage 3 is a road bike, stage 4 is a cyclocross bike, stage 5 is a mountain bike. Terminal stage is a recumbent.

No, the amount of bikes you should own is: n+1, always. Never n-1

You're only supposed to own one bike. Otherwise you're playing favorites and that has been shown to do deep psychological harm that will carry well into the formative years.
