    how many bikes?

    figured i would ask my homies how many bikes you all have. not talkin bout bikes that are 10 years old and have not been ridden in so many years....but bikes you actually do consider part of your stable; mountain, road, cross or otherwise.

    since i dont do road riding that is one less bike i have and 1 more mountain bike i can have, right? what i am really asking is for people to respond with big numbers so i can justify getting another one , though nothing blingy but another one nonetheless.

    cheers

    Only the 1 bike (X5) and it does everything I need
    Not the answer you were looking for.
    I did briefly have an El Salty too, but I always chose the X5.
    I used to have a road bike, but I sold it a couple of years ago. I much prefer off-road action and don't have time for both.

    If I felt the need to race, I'd certainly have a lighter XC bike, but I'm not interested in competing. The last lightweight XC bike I had was a Dale Scalpel and I never really had much fun on it. Pointing it downhill was always painful!

    Fo'

    Gots 'fo of 'em, for now...

    *Ventana El Capitan mountain, red
    *S+eelman Signature roadbike, persimmon sparkle (same as Ventana's orange I believe)
    *Soma Cross Check roadbike/commuter, burnt orange
    *Bianchi B.U.S.S. singlespeed mountain, brown with gold "UPS"

    The last two are for sale, and will make room for a Spicer titanium cruiser 29er ordered last week.

    LOL, don't worry I've got loads of other unecessary toys - cars, cameras, watches, computers, etc that make up for only having the one bike!

    Geez, do you really need justification???

    You do? Well here's some more justification for you...


    1) La Bruja - All Mountain
    2) Saltimontes- XC
    3) El Toro - SS
    4) El Martillo - Roadie what else.
    5) Marble Peak FS - Retro Fix (part time commutter)
    6) Raliegh M50 - Commutter.

    So pray tell, what are you looking at getting?

    You treat your LBS quite well.

    Current:
    El Cap - fully pimped
    Karate Monkey - SS, moderately pimped

    In last twelve months:
    Turner RFX
    On One Inbred
    Specialized road bike
    Surly 1x1

    I fired the roadie and all kiddie wheeled bikes.

    i knew i could count on you to list your multiple bikes!

    currently looking at a 29er Inbred.....not blinged out at all, looking at what i can get for about $800 complete....will find out today. this bike would be perfect for my noon time rides and would be something left in my office 24/7, in part because if i brought it home my wife would not "appreciate" it.

    I can appreciate the sentiment, my wife saw me rebuild the Marble Peak and asked just one word.... "Why?"

    I answered back in one word.

    "Because"

    She left it alone, for now. Probably only because my Raleigh is at the LBS waiting for a warranty Frame to come in...

    P.S. - I didn't know pornstars HAD offices! Wow.

    I have 4 but...

    2 of them are for sell and I only ride my El Saltamontes and La Bruja anymore ! I plan to add a 3rd after the other 2 (dust collectors) are sold ! Still not sure what the third one will be though ! Been leaning on the 29er SS / Reba idea or ? TIG.

    D-Rock's stable

    3 Complete.

    5" El Salt - All Mtn.
    4" Burner - XC (will trade for 4" Salty frame)
    Waterford Paramount Roadie Full Ultegra

    I also have a Psycle Werks Wild Hare 3.5"/4.5" frame that is a Sherwood design. ( I need to sell it if anyone is interested). I may build it back-up if I don't get rid of it to make 4 bikes in the stable. A Reba U-Turn & X.9 kit would be sweet.

    Oh yeah, they are all Blue!!!

    I would also like to add a HT to the mix, I've been eyeing an El Chiquillo for a while. Maybe Sherwood could make me a package deal with a pink Ventana Tricycle!!!
