    Rule no 12: Velominati
    While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

    I adhere to this rule because it suits me. :) All other rules are meant to be broken.

    Exactly. N+1 is the magic number. This is especially important when taking on the status of 'fiancÚ' "how many bikes do you have?"

    I dunno, not enough.

    It is important to establish that you have many bikes, and enter the relationship/matrimony with as many as you can. This way, wifey can't ever quite keep count, and if you happen to add another to the stable?. No big deal. "This old thing?" And, if you happen to fall into the 'old bike has to go, to make room for new bike' (which isn't too bad actually) you will have an ample stable to manipulate.

    My current number in actuality is 6 (DH, hard tail, xc/trail, xc/trail backup, road, trials bike)

    Too many? I've tried to simplify, but it never seems to work out. I could probably get by with my Hecker or Spearfish and my Crosscheck. Two bikes to rule them all. I can't remember the last time I rode my fixie, cargo, or folding bike...

    Built and functional (in order of most used to least used):
    Salsa Spearfish
    Santa Cruz Heckler
    Access XCL 9r (fully rigid singlespeed)
    Surly Crosscheck
    One One Inbred (built as a snow bike with an endo front and an internally geared hub)
    Yuba Mundo (cargo bike)
    Giant fixie
    Dahon Speed P8 (folding bike)

    In partial build or frame status:
    Redline Monocog 29er
    Scwhinn Homegrown

    One 2005 Stumpjumper. It is old but it is all the bike I need. I used to have a whole garage full of bikes but my life is much better when I have only have one.

    My Titanium Lynskey Pro 29 (singlespeed) is so beautiful to ride that I don't even look at other bikes since I built him up. I can't put a photo up now...have to wait until I've done 10 posts...but I don't want to ride any other bike because he's so perfect. Every race is a joy on him and all other riders comment on how beautiful and minimal he is. He weighs 9.2kgs dripping with mud.
    I sold my dualie & geared bikes as I just never rode them anymore and felt guilty about them gathering dust.
    Once you ride the perfect bike you don't lust after others.
    My roadie...isn't the perfect bike and I keep looking at road bikes online. Pure Bike Porn. All matt black Pinarello Paris....ooooh, argh. they just look fast. sigh.
    My cycling friends say to buy all your bikes in the same colour and then your significant partner can't really differentiate between bikes coming and going.Some of them ride them straight away before taking them home and get them filthy so they look like old bikes -never shiny, sparkly new.

    Four. In no particular order, though the Navigator is on permanent loan to a friend. I like riding the Surly up hills, the Monocog on more technical downhills, and the Eclipse on the road. According to Strava, they all get pretty equal mileage, too - about 40 miles a week per bike (not counting the Navigator).

    Each one is different and each serves a purpose: hard tail, full suspension, road, track, CX, and a cruiser I'm trying to get rid of.

    I remember there being a thread like this a while back where someone got offended by the number of bikes people were able to own.

    I have two with me right now actually hanging on a rack by my computer as I type. GT Avalanche 3.0 Disc for play and an old beat up Trek 850 converted to SS that I use as my daily driver. Also have two bikes at my parents house for when I visit, Trek 7.3 FX and some Trek roadbike hand me down from my bro both of which are just for general pavement.

    I have 4, but I am starting to think that I don't really need the HT anymore. Thats the bike that my wife rides on the rare occasion with a few modifications and I still think I might race it when the opportunity presents itself with the right course. It's a good backup bike and a good loaner bike too.
