Trek Madone SLR road bike - my aero bike, fast on the less lumpy stuff.
Wilier Zero6 road bike - my hill climbing bike, 5.8kg of speed and my bike of choice for the road racing in my part of the World.
KTM Scarp Sonic 29er MTB - where I live most cycle races are XC MTB, this is my race bike for that.
Giant ATX 26" MTB - my first MTB, now 21 years old and still looking great. Ride for Guests now.
Fixie - sadly for me this will be donated to someone lucky soon since our Amsterdam apartment will go for rent when my wife no longer needs to commute there for work. Wonderful for getting around the city though, we have never needed to own a car there.
KTM Kapoho E-MTB - mine, but my wife uses it almost exclusively. I bought it when I still thought my knee's would never recover again for serious racing, happily I was proved wrong, my knee's have strengthened again and this bike was the perfect way back into cycling after a long time out.

1. Specialized Tarmac for the weekend rides.
2. Specialized Sirrus X, my main commuter.
3. Turbo Vado for the days I want an easier ride.
4. Allez Sprint frame.

I only own 1 bike. My neighbor was kind enough to let me borrow his bike for awhile before I got my own.

I have three, a mountain bike for distances, and a pair of old folding shoppers, the kind with one handbrake and a coaster brake. One shopper has a bask front and rear, the other has been stripped down to be a moving exercise bicyle.

It does seem funny that we can have so many bikes and be interested in a care free existence, for surely while we might be without cars we are not really free

My n+1 usually hovers at 3. Seems like whenever I get a 4th bike, I sell one. Now that I have a MTB + Road + a new gravel bike, I think I'm set for a while.

Three bikes, but really just one these days.

I never use two of them anymore, but my wife enjoys using them: She uses the Bullitt for carrying things, and the mini-velo if we all three (me, her, and our daughter) are out cycling - which means I carry everything on mine.

I currently have a strong lust for a proper gravel bike - preferably a custom titanium one, but I'm holding out as I don't actually need to spend a lot of dough on something that might not see that much use. I'm still very happy with my Omnium and use it for everything. It is my pickup truck, my race bike, my exploring bike, my touring bike, my one-person transportation bike, my kid carrier, and my all-around fun bike.

Have a Nitro Brahma bar with bar ends mounted near the neck, in a pseudo touring bar setup, but allowing easy access to my front basket contents on the fly. Its ugly, absolutely undesirable to thieves... And perfect for me

Just two, a not quite new Cube race bike and a not really old Stevens Lite Tour. Hey, I need to store them somewhere, and for me a sunstainable lifestyle also means to live in a flat that is suitable and easy to maintain, not in a castle.

Three for me- a semi custom randonneur that I ride EVERYWHERE, a Soma Grand Randonneur (the precursor to the nice one) that is set up with a porteur rack for commuting/groceries/larger beer runs, and a Masi Giramondo that is super fun to play around with in the woods.
