How many bikes?


KC Bike Commuter wants to know: How many bikes are in your stable?

Which brings up an interesting moral dilemma. No, not the one your spouse always brings up: "How many bikes can you ride at one time?" I'm talking about the do-gooder conundrum.

Have you merely transferred your dirty capitalist impulse to hoard and to be a conspicuous consumer to some pretended "higher moral ground"? Don;t you think you're beginning to be a part of the problem rather than solution?

Or do you argue that "the bikes already exist, they may as well belong in a good home"?

Me, I have about eight bikes at the moment, and I'm looking at an upgrade on the road racer.

Since I have obtained my last couple of bikes without monetary cost, I don't feel bad having them.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it...

If I could find more free bikes, I'd take them. 'Cept for the Dynacrap stuff. I'm with you on that one, Pinchie. Fixed too many of 'em for my neighbors and they aren't worth my time. The Microsoft of the bike world.

four frames. two road bikes, two pre-1995 mountain bikes. one of each is built up, with the parts from one MTB to be switched to another with some spec-changes.

Working bikes? Errrr, one, if I'm lucky. Bikes that have worked in the past and will probably be working sometime in the future is around 12. You can see most of them here:

Oh, and I was curious, so I counted the number of wheels at my residence... a whopping 136. Why can't I get a girlfriend?

I currently have 10, plus I also maintain my girlfriends 2. Plus the plethora of frames and parts. I think what's important is when having that many that they all get ridden to some degree. I've known guys that treat extras like classic cars. They have them so they say they have them, but none of them get ridden except to the coffee shop on nice days.

Currently 4, although a fifth is currently gestating. 1 road racer, 1 fixed road, 1 bmx, 1 mid 90's mtb. All CrMo.
