    Hi, my name is Kyle and I'm a Bike-aholic.
    I can't get enough of it. If I'm not riding, I'm thinking about riding or researching different bikes on the web.

    Sorry, no such thing, organizations like AAA are for those who have BAD problem and there's nothing bad about having an addiction to cycling or bikes. It 's only bad if you're a Bike Poser who just buys bikes to pose with at the trail head and never improves year after year, yet has the best/latest/greatest equipment.

    I lost the passion for mountain biking for a long time after a pretty bad injury and surgical repair. Finally found it again.

    The worst part? I just got a new bike (I needed a front yard).

    I'm addicted again

    It's been 6 days since my last bike related purchase.

    I'm stopping by the shop tonight after work. We'll see if there's a 7th day...

    I have 6 bikes that I know of in the garage. One new frameset is on the way, and I am looking for, yet, another bike to build up. I have issues.

    When I sat down and counted, I realized I've had 26 hardtail 29ers. Is there a problem somewhere?

    Maybe I shouldn't have counted the Peregrine as a 29er, that would make it look much better...

    My name is Gene. I am addicted to bikes too. If I am not riding one or working on one I am fitting some one on one. Oh yeah, I also like buying them.

    My name is Paul and I'm a bikeaholic. I just bought a 2013 Trek Gary Fisher Super-fly Elite and I'm already researching a full suspension bike. I'm kinda up in the air between a Yeti SB66 and a Fuel EX 9 or a Salsa Horsethief. I seriously need an intervention
    Chances are .. You're full of !$@&?

    Nice try LyNx...I do believe your next ride should include a search for your sense of humor. Perhaps an intervention is needed. Not sure that's included as an AAA membership benefit, I'll have to check.

    Don't waste your time. The only kind of sense you'll get out of him is nonsense.

    Hi, my name is Phillip. My first 29er came a year ago(2013 Specialized Stumpjumper Expert Carbon), went back to a 26er two months ago(2013 S-Works Enduro Carbon), went back to a 29er two weeks ago(2014 Enduro Expert Carbon SE). Before this last year, my previous bike was a 2011 S-Works Stumpjumper 26er. Before that was a stable of bikes that I sold off to get bikes for my kids which have since been traded to get them new bikes as they have grown. Yes , I think I am a bikeaholic. But I ride 4-5 days a week with 6-8000 feet of climbing at least, with a few poses at the trailhead!

    Howdy, my name is Andy. I have bought, sold or broke many bikes in my day. I am 40 years young and currently own an ancient 26" hard tail Raleigh mountain bike that I use as a commuter and once in a great while it sees an easy trail ride. I also have a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 roadie that sees use when the trails are too wet on the CO Front Range. I race about 3 times a year on a 2010 Superfly 100. I have a Yeti 303 DH bike that doesn't see nearly enough use! Same with a KTM 200XCW!!

    My current obsession is a 2012 Rumblefish Elite that I have added a carbon flat bar, Ergon grips, Dropper seat post, 2.35 Front Butcher, 2.2 Rear Ground Control tubeless, XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur and just put on a 2014 Fox Talas 110-140 travel 34mm chassis *****in' fork. I already want 2X10 cranks, shifter & front derailleur. It's almost unrecognizable from when I bought it.

    I might have a problem but at least I don't drink much or smoke.
