How many bikes have you owned?
Quote | Reply
Not counting bikes as a little kid. Since my mid teens, 30 years ago, I've owned or currently own....

4 mountain bikes. (currently have 1)
1 track bike (currently have 1)
5 tri-specific / TT bikes (1 bike 1 frame now)
1 sized down roadie converted to tri-bike. (frame only now)
9 road bikes (2 now)

Of the bikes I have now, 3 are rideable. (the mountain bike, one roadie, and one tri bike) and I have 4 frames / bikes in varying states of unrideable due to missing parts.

Two road. One MTB. One tri superbike. That's it. Sold one road bike and the MTB. Still have one road bike and the tri bike. They do well. I don't need or want to replace them just so I can feel like I'm riding something new.

Edit: I do have an extra set of wheels, and lots of bike parts in the garage.

over what timeline?

The bikes I'm not riding now, one was a mistake (but it was cheap, and I might have an alternate use for it). one is my old race bike, a Serotta steel frame I purchased in '94 and can't bear to part with. One is my old tri bike bastard child, that worked OK but not great (replaced with the current Cervelo around 2007.) and one is my fixie that I just have to put the cranks back on.

The road bikes I no longer have are mostly either broken or I changed sizes. The tri-bikes I no longer own are old Cannondale 650c R700's and a 650c Cervelo P2 (original aluminum one). I loved that P2, I shouldn't have sold it. Of course, I couldn't run anything wider than a 19mm tire on the back, but other than that, and the shitty seat clamp, it was awesome.

Hmmm....personally (not including wife and kids' bikes), just 3:

1984? Schwinn 10 speed (downtube friction shifters) as a teen...owned it into my 20s, don't remember what ever happened to it.

1992 Walmart mountain bike - added caged-pedals then SPD-clipless, slicks, and a scott aerobar (one of those loopy looking ones). Did charity century rides (MS150, etc) on it for two years. One day the front tire sidewall blew out at 25+ mph while I was in the areobars. The sidewall grabbed the brake pad which brought everything to a stop VERY quickly. Endo'd. Taco'd the front wheel, bent the fork, stem, and aerobar, and the right crank-arm. Bike was toast...which led to:

1995 Cannondale SR900. Which I still own and ride today. As documented elsewhere, its now my converted tri-ish bike.

Have gone through 2 road bikes (1 now)
Have one MTB.
Have one TT bike.
Have one CX bike.

If storage and money were not an issue, I figure I'd have at least 15 bikes. :)

Not too many.

3 road bikes (only have 1 now and sold the other 2)
1 TT/Tri bike (first one and still have it)
1 MTB (first one and still have it)

Been through lots of parts though as I did several drivetrain upgrades and went through several cranks (and PM cranks even). Same with wheels too upgraded those on the Tri bike a few times too for race wheels.
