How many bikes are there in your shed/garage/house?
« on: July 09, 2008, 04:18:43 pm »
I've just sorted out in-sewer-ants for the new garage and I had to add up how many bikes Liz and I have between us.

I'm shocked and a little bit embarrassed.  Those coming to the garage-warming party next Wednesday will see why.  I have eleven, she has four and we share the new tandem.  That's sixteen bikes between us.  All of mine are ridable and I've also got parts to put together at least one more.

Fair enough - if we were both really into tennis, we might both own 16 tennis racquets between us.  Serious anglers might have sixteen rods.  But sixteen bicycles?

Make me feel better - tell me how many you have in your garage.  Are they just yours or are they a collection of you and your partner's or the whole family?

I have five. 

Rosie, Ollie the Fixie, the Trek, the Shiny New Beautiful Piece of Loveliness, and the rustbucket. 

And half shares in the tandem.

Do tandems count as one, and does a frame count as half?

Four at the moment, but if I ever win the Lottery, thae number is likely to increase dramatically.

We have eleven 12 here (I forgot the one in the hall :-[). I haven't included the 2 tandems in Yorkshire, the one in my friend's garage or the mountain bike that my dad's riding. So that's really 16. Plus a frame and a frame plus in Yorkshire. 18. Plus the one I left where I used to live, so that I can ride it if I'm down there. 19. But eleven 12 really. :D

I have lost count :-[

Actually, sitting here with my website, memories, and a pen and paper I don't think it's as bad as I initially feared.  About 14 saddles I think?

8 bikes, 4 decent ones, 4 hacks.  If I count Mrs raes, that would be 10, and the kids 2 more.  So 12.   By hey, I've also got 21 chainsaws in there, so the bikes aren't really the problem.

Seventeen.
All my size and all rideable.
Very rarely sell a complete bike, so these go back quite a few years.

12. Six are mine 3 are mrs As and the other three belong to the kids. Although whether those 3 actually class as bikes or very heavy immovable objects is debatable ;D

Tandems = 1
Frames = 0
Unicycle = 0

I beg to differ  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

(although reducing my count of cycles by two does make me feel a little better)

6

My two (fixed and tourer)

Dads two (Moulton APB and old British Eagle Randonee)

Mums and Sisters, one each.

however if I can get Dads motorbike fixed and out of the Garage (i.e sold) I might be able to claim the space for a recumbent trike.  :thumbsup:

Sadly, only two.  And one of those is in bits waiting in the queue for a rebuild (purchasign a road bike is more important).
