We got 9 in the flat and 1 at a friends house and 3 up north. So that is 12 in all (5 mine, 7 Peli's)

Though only 4 of them can be ridden atm.

8, I think, between Mrs. Hall, The Boy and me.  I have the majority.

All in the garage.


I have seen inside Chris Juden's garage.  50 odd, I'm sure.

We only have five between two of us.  I feel inadequate, and must immediately purchase a fresh brace of cycles.

For me

2 x delicious road bikes
1 x steel bike w.guards
1 x fixed
1 x mtb, slicked up for road use

For her

1 x steel road bike (soon to be replaced with a ti/carbon model)
1 x ti bike w.guards
1 x fixed

+ assorted wheels/pedals/parts.

If funds/room were freely available, this number would increase significantly. I could end up like US chat show host Jay Leno who takes his obsession with things automotive to the extreme of having a 17,000 sq.ft facility to house his car/truck collection and his own team of mechanics with a workshop/fabrication facility

We're lightweights, there's only 6 here.

Mine - old mtb with baby seat; road bike
His - summer bike, winter bike, mtb
Both - Dawes Galaxy Twin.

And the littlun has a wooden trike - does that count?  It does quite a few miles around the garden.

I've got two (Super Galaxy and Mongoose MTB) with one on order (Enigma Ti tourer). When the Enigma arrives, the Super G will go.
Ideally I would like one bike only- the Enigma- but I can see the  point in having an MTB as well so I would consider upgrading the Mongoose even though we go back 15+ years.
Fixed has no appeal- my knees sometimes suffer after football and I really think I've got a restricted speed range sort of engine.
I don't race or TT.
A lightweight road bike and/or a Cross bike has appeal though.
Maybe I should think in terms of the Enigma plus a set of spare wheels with "knobbly" tyres and a racer ?

No  :hand: I still come back to one main bike with the Mongoose for locking up in town.
N+1 doesn't seem to work for me.
Maybe I need to seek another forum.  :-\
I'll say goodbye to those of you that I meet on the DD  :'(

Also; no one has just one bike  ;D
I have only one bike.  I clicked 'two' because Mrs Lurker's bike also lives in the garage.

If the question had been, "How many bikes do you, personally, ie on your own, not counting anybody else's bikes that might happen to live, lodge or otherwise reside at your house, have?" Then I would have clicked 'one'. :D

Oh god, I think I need to go and lie down in a darkened room.  After I've killed my colleague who insists on slurping his bloody tea and chewing gum with his mouth open. Argggggggggggggh.
