    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.

    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?

    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...

    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!!!

    I'm not too keen on posting pics of my child on the net, so this will probably be your only chance to see her.

    My girl Elise, or as LoneStar already coined her "E-Rock"



    Now where is that pink Ventana tryke, "El Niño"??!!!!!

    Oh man I don't let the wife see anything if possible. Why do you think I want a black Comandante? She won't notice. She goes strictly by color. She can see my shop from the kitchen window. If she sees me ride out on a bike that's to big or to small for me, she knows that's a customer's or friend's bike. But if I rode out on say a blue Ventana,...red flag. If I rode out more than 3 times on it,...sirens. If I throw it in the back of my truck,...death com 3, she's planning her attack.

    She will wait till a bunch of my Buds are over knocking back a few brews. We'll be out in the shop checking out the new iron. She'll walk in and point to the new bike and say, "Is that your's?". I'll gulp loud and all my friends take a step back. She's on me like flies on sh,...sugar. I'll whiff out a high pitched crackle," Yeah Honey Sherwood gave me a real good deal on the frame,...$200.". Now everyone on this board knows that's a bold faced lie. Will so do my Buds who are now bitting their lips to keep from laughing.

    At this point I'm screwed. This is gonna cost me jewelry or clothes or. It means XTR is turning to LX,...it's just scarey.

    I'm addicted to anything that has wheels

    I will start by saying I just received my Ventana X-5..grinch green........I'm jazzed

    - 2004 Ventana X-5 (I hoping this will be my do everything bike)
    - 2001 Merlin mtn (commute bike)
    - 2003 GF Sugar (uncle Gary keeps replacing em so I keep break'em)
    - 1998 C'Dale R-1000 rb (gets ridden when I train for the Death Ride other than that it collect dust)
    - 2000 RedLine Proline Cruiser (I often subject myself to BMX only to realize I can't make it over the triple jump.....case the rear wheel on the double then over the bars)
    - 1999 S-Works hard tail (wifes rig she never rides so the step son is about to come of age)

    All my mtn bikes run Shimano XT drive train except XTR shifters then I pimp them out with Chris King wheels & headsets. Over the last six years I've become obsessed with Chris King hubs( 3 disk wheelsets, four classics, one road set & BMX set, .......I guess it's the mechanical engineer in me which is why I marvel over Ventana's

    I also borrow my brother-in-law's Ventana Tandem........and do the Granite Bay trail with my step son. I love tandem but that's big $$$$$$

    I haven't even finished buying all the X-5 parts and I'm already thinking of my next rig. I think its this forum and all the talk about 29ers.......has got me thinking rigid 29er single gear up front with eight out back.

    Stuck at 3 for a while

    Had to sell, no lease, my soul for a couple of years to get the Ventana.

    Got the Ventana El Feugo, Interloc Hardtail, and a Univega Hardtail on the training stand.

    I'd love to add another half dozen or so... a 'bent, a cyclocross, a dh, a freeride, a roadie, a uni, and maybe more...

    Until I hit the lotto... won't happen though. Got another 2 years 1 month and 10 days before the next can be purchased....

    5

    '04 Ventana X-5, coil front and rear
    '04 Jamis Dragon hardtail w/ Reba SL fork (frame soon to be replaced by an '05 Jamis Dakar XC Expert - Dragon frame is currently for sale here on the Classifieds)
    '04 Salsa Campeon road bike, full Ultegra with Neuvation M28 Aero wheelset
    '05 Surly 1x1

    Another fully built bike that is in the stable, but which is just for fun, occasional rides with the family is a 1983 Kuwahara Puma that I converted to a SS cruiser.

    I also have a Superblow Access hardtail frame sitting in my shed, waiting to be rebuilt as a commuter this spring, and an old French road bike frame that will one day be a fixie.

    (BTW, Fo - that avatar is just plain wrong. I can't believe your wife let you post that picture she took of you while "role playing." You know the difference between erotic and kinky right? Erotic is using a feather. Kinky is using the whole chicken.)

    3 right now.

    X-5 - My main trail ride

    El Toro SS - Commute and a little trail riding

    Gary Fisher Tassajara HT - Mostly a loaner now, but I take it on a trail once in a while. I put a slick on it and set it up on the trainer during the winter.

    I also have an old steel Rock Hopper that I am wanting to build into a single speed. Been kind of getting the bug for a new one again too, but I have been bogged down this year, and probably next year, with remodeling the house.

    Four in order of the amount they get ridden:

    1. Surly Karate Monkey-mainly commuter, but sometimes rigid off road.
    2. Ventana 5" El Salty.
    3. Softride- commuter/roadie/tri-bike depending on seat angle, and which bars it's wearing.
    4. Hutch BMX (I still get to ride it because my son is too small).

    Plus trail a bike, and 3 P.O.S. kids bikes. I actually found my son's current 16 incher in the trash (an old steel murray). Greased up everything, cleaned it, patched the tires and it was ready to go.

    One on the way to replace the Salty. I'm done with 26" wheels. Make me an offer on a large superdust frame with 3,4,5 rockers (the finish is beat up).

    I'm demoing and setting up an On-One Inbred for a friend for the next few months. If I like it, I might be coerced into a dedicated SS offroad bike...we'll see.

    Oh, I've also decided I want to learn to ride a Unicycle and am looking at the new Surly conundrum for this.

    Nobody wants to see your bellybutton, Fo. However, I would guess that you have upgraded the original steel bellybutton ring with a blingy titanium one with a faux bar. How much travel does your bellybutton ring have?

    LOL! That was awesome..

    That was an awesome write-up.

    Felt like I was right there with you. I can't really complain though, my wife's been very supportive for 90% of my bike purchases. She just has one rule, the cars need to be parked inside the garage at the end of the night. 5 built bikes I can pull that off, Six and I'm out room. (Six of my own that is, since her bike, my sons bike and the bike trailer are also in the there.)

    I too have tried to buy her off, I tried to rebuild the Marble Peak for her to use for almost a year now and she kept scoffing at the idea, I asked her why and her response (and proving that I'm rubbing off on her) "If I'm going to ride a Ventana, I want my own, NEW one......in Red."

    So that's the plan for 06, the new bike to the stable will be hers.

    I hear ya ther man. I've been hearing, "Why can't I park the car in the garage?" for almost two years now.
    She bought a horse this summer, so the door was wide open to buy a new bike, but I used the funds instead to build a 12x16 foot Bike Garage that's 12feet tall too. Lot's of space to stack stuff, ie bike stuff! Now the garage is cleaned out of bike stuff, but now there's a couple of morcycles and odss and ends in the way and she still can't get her car in.


    Bikes:
    La Bruja-Talas36, King, 521's, Hopes, RaceFace....my do all, go anywhere XC bike!
    El Cuervo-888, King/Hadley, 321's, XTR cranks/der.,...my downhill fun bike.
    Old spec. S-Works road frame with 1992 era Campy Record 8sp.

    Wife Bikes:
    X-5, Supernova, RF, XTR, yadda yadda...still dirty from the last time a buddy used it, from back in July! It's good "Hole in the Ground" dirt so it can stay.
    C'Dale Road bike with a mix and match of 9sp D-A stuff.


    There some old Puegot hanging in the rafters too that someone left at my house a long time ago...

    Actually I don't know how many bikes I have. Fo just said the ones you ride. I've got 2 Nisiki town bikes, a old Gitane road bike, couple of old Schwinns, etc. I just gave away a Fisher HKEK and a Marin Muirwoods and just sold a Klein road bike.

    Sherwood says he's up for a New Years Day ride.

    One ... that's all I have.

    It could be worse though, it could've been something else than my Salty. But maybe not because you only really need one bike if you have an El Saltamontes.


    OK ok I'll leave it at that 'cause not helping the general discussion about multiple wheels

    I mean I guess I can count my wife's old Scott, that thing has no suspension and weighs a ton, and my kids bikes (new for this christmas but don't tell them)
    I would have liked to buy them Ventanas but he doesn't make that size (14" and 16" wheels) well at least not at Wallmart prices

    Now there is one I would like, just to show of, that Ventana Chopper

    Bikes are like skis: you need a different one for each type of riding.

    El Saltmontes - for longer rides, up high, with lots of climbing.
    La Bruja - for shorter rides, extra technical and challenging terrain with drops.
    Kona King Kahuna SS - for punishing myself when I've been bad.
    Kona Hot, Reynolds 853 steel hardtail. - for punishing my friends on their big bikes when they've been bad.
    Vamoots - road machine, commuter skooter - to get me to work when there is actually enough daylight to make it home before dark and for riding when the trails are too nasty to be much fun.

    There are others but these are all that I ride. I do have a Kona Stinky for guests who come to visit.

    And now for my list of skis......wrong board.

    So there you go. If you need an excuse for getting yet another bike there is always the "I need it for cousin Johny".
