I prefer to have one that does it all. My 29er hardtail is good for anything on the trails and gets plenty of use on the road as well.
-2013 Specialized Stumperjumper EVO 29
-2011 Specialized Tricross Comp
-Trek/Gary Fisher Superfly that I'm trying to get rid of (Originally a 2009 carbon hardtail, multiple broken frames later it's been upgraded a lot and on a 2012 aluminum frame)
I had a Quintana Roo Lucero carbon triathlon bike but I got laid off a week after buying it and had to take it back :(
2003 Ellsworth Truth
2005-2006 Trek 8000 warranty replacement for a 1994 7000, spare/backup bike
2006 Specialized Roubaix
2007 Specialized Enduro SL with E150 fork which is pretty much my do everything bike, 30 mile epics, lift assist (Highland, Attitash, Jiminy Peak)
1985 schwinn preditor
1995 gt rts
1997 gt backwoods
2005 fuji adventure hi
Rocky Mtn Solo
Gary Fisher Cobia 29
Giant Anthem 2 29
Gt Cross Comp
Gary Fisher HooKooEKoo
Trek Jet (for the 6 year old)
My 13 yo and I are the same height, every time I ride, He wants to go. Had to double the fleet.
1 - '12 Trek EX 9.9 - Trail bike
2 - '10 Gary Fisher Cronus Ultimate - Road bike
3 - '95 GT Tequesta - Gravel road bike / Trailer puller
I don't count the old frames I keep around as wall hangers.
Used to have 4 mtbs and 1 road, 29" hardtail, 26" singlespeed, 26" low travel and 26" all mountain/mini dh bike; now only have a 29" hardtail and the roadie plus the singlespeed frame as wall decoration.
I second this, I have one bike. I sold off others I only like to keep one, all the best components get put into one bike instead of spread amongst a few. I have a 2012 trek superfly al.

Like a few others, I have three:
'10 Trek EX8 (full slushy)
'97 Kona King Kahuna (Ti hardtail)
'05 Bianchi Giro (roadie)
I briefly thought about downsizing to one mtb, but quickly came to my senses.
2 point eleventy
1 mtb (custom steel hardtail)
1 road bike (carbon)
another couple of frames (ally HT and a full sus)
and probably just about enough bits to make a separate single speed bike
Would like a new susser at somepoint and a cyclo cross...although I din't really have room for them...I'd manage :)
hardtail, FS trailbike, DH, road, commuter. I have 2 other old, non-functionnal bikes.
A fat bike would be a nice addition.
I have way more than I could ever use:
Surly Cross Check (now my primary ride)
Surly Long Haul Trucker (in the shop getting a couple upgrades)
Surly Big Dummy
Actionbent TadPole trike
9zero7 fatbike with a Mendelson lefty front fork
I've been debating on selling the LHT because I have three bikes that can do the same tasks but for now I've decided to keep it.
My 2005 commuter bike (with handlebar basket, rear rack, ginormous waterproof panniers, loud bell and eyeball searing light)
My 2011 mtn bike that I'm currently gifting it a new seatpost and shiny sharp pedals in the next couple of weeks.
I would like a road bike but I'd like to learn some wrenching skills and I'm leaning towards buying a either a used road bike or drown myself and build a roadie from scratch.
I'm down to just four proper mountain bikes, and I just listed one of those, a Banshee Rune, up for sale.
The three bikes I intend to keep for the moment are as follows:
Banshee Viento (26" All-Mountain Hardtail), Devinci District (Single Speed Dirt Jumper), and a Devinci Wilson, (Downhill Bike).
I used to have a lot more bikes, but have I traded a few for a wife and kid ;)

Those are mine. My hubby has an early Trek MTB. My oldest son has an 80s GT BMX with mags. And our youngest has a Redline Pitboss 12". I think my favorite ride though is a Green Machine big wheel from the 70s we found on CL. That is one fun set of wheels, even if you are old!
How many bikes do you have?
2013 Pivot Mach 429C Pro XT/R
My first pure MTB bike
2013 BH Prisma Ultegra Ui2
Long distance road bike. I ride this on weekends, on rides between 60 and 100 miles. The electronic shifting is great
2012 BH Prisma SRAM Force
My daily computer bike. I ride this one 30 miles a day, 5 days a week
2002 Gary Fisher Hybrid
This is now my rain commuting bike
2000 Dahon Mariner folding
1999 Dahon Mariner folding
Stored on the cruising boat. I use these to get around when going ashore
1996 Trek Crossroad

2010 Scott Spark 40
2009 Wheeler 29" hardtail
2007 Stevens S-6 26" hardtail
Added a 4900 to the stable, it's not in yet but should be this coming week. Except for the fork it's a decent enough equipped bike, very similar in components to last year's 6000. I wanted my wife to have a capable 26" mtn bike....that I can use as well. ;)

3 here: 2 mtb and 1 road. I just don't have room for 8 bikes. In fact I don't have room for 3 bikes, LOL. I probably will thin the herd down to 2 bikes to simplify: My Turner sultan for dirt and Trek for the road workouts.
Does anyone here know where i can get a K2 Attack 2.0 Mountain Bike (2006-2008)? i'm having a hard time looking for this specific mtb. Just curious if anyone who owns this type of MTB would want to sell theirs or know where i can get one? please let me know
1) All Mountain: Univega RAM AM 5
2) Road Bike: Univega Via Antaris Pro
3) Trekking Bike: Raleigh Night Flight Alfine 11
4) A white Gudereit Youngtimer from the 80s
5) A bad looking city bike which I can leave unattented for a while.
