3. None of them are even close to high end. Not even mid-end. 2 are standard older department store bikes. My current go-to is a Schwinn GS Frontier from the 90s, updated with mostly newer components.

I have two bikes at present: a 2010 Kona Jake the Snake cross bike and a 2014 Specialized AWOL.

They cover all of my riding needs pretty well, and both get used as commuters and the AWOL is great for shopping, running errands, etc. I am, however, developing an overwhelming desire to add a fun road bike to the mix, something that doesn't need to be terribly practical but is well suited to faster weekend group rides and the like. We'll see where that leads!

Living car free with one bicycle. I like keeping things simple. Works fine for me. Multiple bikes is a waste IMO.

No, I didn't built it myself or anything...just full of bling...I think I deserve to indulge a little every once in a while.


I'm totally on board with that! I've been saving for a bit of cycling indulgence myself.

I can't live car-light without a backup bike. Sometimes you have a problem and no immediate time to fix it. I'm not a good morning person, so if I open the garage with just the right amount of time to get to work and find a flat, even though I can change it pretty quickly, I just don't want the hassle, and in some cases dirt and sweating, of fixing it on the spot, so I just grab the other bike.

Also I prefer my road-ish tour bike with skinnier tires in summer, and the slightly fatter tires of the other bike on slimy leaf-mulched autumn streets.

14 bikes collected over the years - one or two project bikes

All need work, but there isn't enough time.

I have two similarly outfitted bikes, which I alternate every week in order to keep the wear and tear even between bikes, and at least one of the bikes is always on the ready should I have a unforeseen or lengthy maintenance repair on the other bike.

At the plater. Should be done in a month or two. I have to drizzle it out for my dear wife.

Too many. Sixteen at the moment not counting the one I'm building for a friend.

I made the mistake of buying some of these, like my Miyata 710 for a part or parts and then intending to resell, but rode and fell in love with.

Cheers

Just 2 - both are hybrids. Would like to post a foto, but it's my second forum posting. Not sure if it is allowed.
