My bike situation is very fluid.

* commute on extremely modded R20
* Swift self-built is nearing completion
* Light-weight hard-tail MTB w/ XT componentry, thinking about selling it
* just sold Giant CRX2
* eyeing a Moulton
So it looks like I might end up with only small-wheeled bikes.

Complete list on my profile for anyone who cares. Although I end up riding my folders most of the time, I don't think I'd get rid of my Bianchi road bike; it's just a very nice bike to ride. I may give my 16 year old hybrid away to something like a church rummage sale. It's actually in very good condition, but I don't need all these bikes, and no sensible person would pay much for it.

Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra slightly upgraded for comuting (rear rack, fenders, lights, etc...);

Dahon Curve D3 slightly upgraded for performance (clipless pedals, no rear rack, fenders, etc...)

When I put 1000Miles on the Curve I will give myself a gift: Bike Friday Tikit with Rohloff or a Twinky Brompton/Merc (or something equivalent, available in the market by then).

Um probably about two too many folders, but there you go...

- Mezzo d9 (the workhorse)
- Raleigh Stowaway (in lovely rusty green waiting for strip down, paint job and suspension fork to be fitted - note to self, get on with it...)
- 'nother Raleigh 20 in gorgeous metallic fawn and white (waiting for a nice summer's day to ride...)
- Downtube IXFS (languishing in work bike rack but waiting for an excuse to take it for a ride - maybe next week...)

But I do quite fancy one of those nice monocoque Birdys to add to the stable (but only if I can score one on my cycle to work scheme - 1200 is perhaps too much to spend on a fourth reserve bike)

Strange...

Strange - this thread has been viewed 333 times, yet only 59 have taken the poll. I wonder why so many have looked, but few have contributed to the poll.

Up until having a 32 mile RT commute through the south Bronx, just a folder. I need more speed to get through Mott Haven alive. Still love my folder though. I added an early 80's fuji road/touring bike, SA-WEET!!!!!!!! (Only 150 plus shipping), you can see pics here: https://bikeforums.net/showthread.php...ke%2C+new+bike
