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.
You can find me in the woods -- playing in the dirt and mud -- on my 2013 Trek Mamba -- or in my 1984 Chevrolet K10.

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
What exactly is a rigid hard tail?
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.
2011 Jamis Durango 1.0 Femme
2005 KHS T&C commuter bike
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
