    How many bikes ?

    Poll How many bikes do you own ?

    I own 3. Two MTB and one road.

    What would you add to your quiver next ?

    I cant decide between DJ or cyclocross.
    Yeah I gotta question. You got any excuses tonight Roy ? -Antonio Tarver

    There is room for it all, just ride what you like to on what you like to...that's freeriding. -rbn14

    I currently have three - two DH bikes (one for sale) and a trail bike. Used to have a road bike, but I never rode it so I sold it.

    A dirt jumping bike would be nice...

    3. Specialized Enduro for 'real' mountain biking
    4. Cinelli racer - gettting on for ten years old but its a classic.

    Four

    3 Mountain, 1 Road

    Independent Fabrication (IF) steel hardtail which is my main ride

    GT I-2.0 FS - This is my current challenge bike. How to get it down from 32 lbs to a more XC friendly weight. Say around 28 lbs.

    GT Zaskar - My FrankenBike. Zaskar frame, CroMo rigid fork from a GT Tequesta and bits and pieces that were lying around or purchased cheap.

    Cannondale R400 Road bike picked up used last summer for $400.

    I ride them all and each has its place.

    The IF is great for racing and XC rides. The I-Drive has plenty of suspension and sometimes gets used for lift served though I'm more an XC kind of guy. The Zaskar FrankenBike is perfect for city rides. If I get mugged and the bike stolen, no great loss and strong as can be for those city potholes and curbs. The Cannondale is a road bike. You ride those on roads; at least I do a couple times per week.

    I've really gotten into the road bike state of mind the past year and love to go for an hour or two after work to stay in shape. Next new bike may well be a higher end road machine.

    There are also three other hardtails and two BMX's in the family.

    2004 Ellsworth Truth (My dream bike)
    2004 Giant TCR Composite Road Bike

    I will probably build up a Hardtail for short course racing, or possibly a fully rigid SSeer.

    The sad part of owing a road bike is that I only ride my MTB 1-2 a week at the most...

    I only have one..

    ... it's a 99' Ibis Mojo with a Marzocchi Z2 fork (that only gets about 2 1/2" of travel) and an XT/XTR build. I ride it everywhere, road, dirt, uphill and down.
    Maybe one of these days I'll finally break down and get a full suspension XC ride, maybe a Blur.

    I have four bikes:
    2002 Ellsworth Truth - all XT, Hope Mini brakes, Truvative cranks/BB, Terry ti Fly saddle, Thompson post and stem, King headset and hubs, 317 rims, Manitou X-Vert Air fork, Cane Creek AD-12 shock.

    2003 Giant AC Air - bone stock

    1999 Specialized FSR Elite (big hit) - Jr. T fork, all XT, Fox Vanilla R shock, Sun Rhynolite rims laced to Onyx hubs, Titec Berserker saddle on a Thompson post, BETD plate to give 6" travel in rear, Maxxis Highroller 2.5 front tire and 2.35 MOFO DH rear tire

    2000 Lemond Zurich road bike - Speedplay X1 pedals, USE Alien carbon post, Sella Italia SLK saddle.

    Next up? 2004 Fondriest Domino Carbon road frame - full Dura-Ace 10 speed, American Classic 420 wheels, and most likely a divorce (heh, heh).

    Ah yes...

    ... the ubiquitous, "how many bikes do you have?" / "how many do you own?" / "what bike do you want next?" post. ... not that I mind, of course.

    My stable hasn't changed much.

    But as far as what I want next... I'd really like to sell off my Sugar & C-Dale and build up a Ti rigid 29er with discs and a 1x8 drivetrain.

    Next bike will either be a freeride rig or a new road bike.

    My selection changes pretty frequently. The two staples are

    ?1990? Third hand Bridgestone RB-1 road frame that I traded for a cassette deck still with all the D/A stuff I bought for a Paramount back in '93.

    1998 Ells Specialist that recently "upgraded" from 1x8 to 1x9 when my shorts snagged the thumbshifter of my '93 XTR rear shifter and broke the shifter axle. That was a sad day.

    My rotating stock.
    I go through a couple trials frame per year (I usually sell them after 6 months)
    recently broken Echo ES-4 trials frame. to become
    a fancyboy Coustellier trials frame with all my goodies.

    I have enough parts and an old, cracked custom trials frame which I'll build into a fixie in the next couple weeks.

    4 for me, 3 for my wife

    3 MTBs, 1road bike:
    2001 Santa Cruz Superlight with Marzocchi Xfly100, Avid disks, 9 sp XT, Race Face
    2001 Soma Groove steel hardtail with Marzocchi Xfly80, 8sp LX/XT, Race Face
    1992 Litespeed titanium rigid singlespeed, steel Tange fork, Race Face, ENO
    2004 Specialized Allez Elite steel road bike w/105 (picking it up this weekend)

    Some of everything - full suspension, hardtail, rigid, aluminum, steel, titanium, 27 sp, 24sp, singlespeed, mountain bikes, road bike. I've owned 2 aluminum hardtails ('94 Specialized Stumpjumper M2FS and '97 Cannondale CAAD2), and an aluminum rigid bike ('99 C'dale M400), but a steel hardtail is where it's at. I just *rescued* the Litespeed last year, and turned it into a SS. Sweet suffering.

    My wife has 2 MTBs and 1 road bike
    2001 Titus Racer X with Marzocchi Xfly80, Avid disks, 9 sp XT, Race Face
    2001 Soma Groove steel hardtail with Marzocchi Xfly80, 8sp XT, Race Face
    2003 Bianchi Vigorelli steel road bike w/Ultegra

    My wife started on a rigid steel Specialized Rockhopper, moved to a Specialized Stumpjumper M2FS before getting the Titus and Soma bikes. She really likes the steel hardtail compared to the M2FS and she flies on the Titus. She just got te Bianchi last year and loves it too.

    Seven bikes in the apartment... getting a tad cramped. Keep all the bikes, time to move.

    what would i get next?

    Silly question, the answers are obvious. A SS. Or a CX (in the words of Clubber Lang in Rocky 3, "painnnn"). Or a FG. Wrenching is what your SO is for.

    Tell me about your Giant TCR

    I've has some interest in the '04 Composite 2. Seems like a lot of bike for the money. Does the composite frame do a good job of absorbing minor road vibrations? What size is your frame and how does it relate to your size. I'm 5'11" and weight 185 lbs. My traditional road frame (Cannondale) is 54cm.

    Thanks for any input.
