How Many Frame Sizes Do You Ride?

Most of us have different and varying sizes and types/purposes of bikes in their collection they regularly or occasionally ride. I'm wondering what your range of sizes is that you would casually or even thrash now and then.

For me, I have 3. The optimum, perfect frame is the Cdale Crit with 54cm and fits me better than any other 54 I have owned. Then comes the Trek 760 that is one size down at 52. The seat post is a bit more exposed but the racing/crit geo fits just fine. From what I understand it was a common practice among racers in the day. Lastly, the '77 Colnago is my tallest. At 57cm it isnt too tall for comfort and is easily manageable. I'm able to hop from one to the other and feel at home but only that perfect fit 54cm Cannondale goes out on the open road, though I would take any of them for the pure joy of it.

How about you?
