How many road bikes do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

One.

The other one is ridden on the road, but isn't a road bike.

Just one road bike. My other bike is an old mountain bike, which is more like a hybrid (no suspension, slicks). I use it as my commuter. The other bike is a single speed mountain bike.

I used to have a road bike ('89 Bianchi Brava) as a commuter and my roadie road bike.

One and a half? How can you have half a bike?

I have one Ti road bike, one steel road bike, and a SS/FG with fenders (commuter) which I guess still qualifies.

Also a recumbent which surely does not qualify in the eyes of the 41.

So that makes 3.

They call them "mountain" bikes.

That's a bike with a single seat, as contrasted with a tandem, I.e. full bike

One road bike, and one cyclocross bike. The CX is almost a road bike; most people would recognize it as one. But it's too heavy and the steering is too drunken for it to be a true road bike, plus I can crash it in the dirt. ( Or ride dirt trails without crashing... )

Well the reason I said one and a half is because I have an old Peugeot that needs wheels and a stem.. I got it for ten bucks at a yard sale a few years back. Its pretty sweet
