    I have 3 at the moment, De Rosa summer / best bike, Kinesis winter / wet bike, Planet X crosser. Trying to think of a reason to buy a nice steel frame, apart from that I just want one

    My name's Phil, and.... I'm building a fixie.

    (Applause here).

    There's also my trusty Galaxy (new in 1988. Frame and brakes now the only original components). My 'bent. My recently refurbished steel-frame hard-tail Marin. A Brompton, although that's really a sort of household-cum-guest bike, not exclusively mine.

    So that's three and a half, and one on the way.

    Two and a bit.

    Betty, a 2004 Dawes Horizon.
    Poppy, a Pearson Audax.
    Half a tandem.

    Am thinking about purchasing a singlespeed (fixed isn't my cup of tea) as am about to move somewhere with a very flat commute....

    Currently have 6 bikes, 3 roadies, 2MTB's and A Thorn Brevet light tourer. They are spread over three countries though but it means I can get a ride in the places a visit the most!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keith - 6 !!!!!! I find it hard enough looking after 1. :rolleyes:

    Sevenstar - I looked and your bike pics. I like the specialised. Might go for one of those next time. Looks very shiny. Any tips on keeping it like that or was this a sneeky pic before you ever rode it ?
    And what's with the tall bike ? Are the barrels to stop you falling off. I've never seen anything like it. Tell me more.

    I have a Bianchi Roadbike, a Claude Butler Mtb and a Unicycle that I will get round to mastering one day. I'm moving next week to a house with a much bigger garage......there'll be room for many more....... :blush:
     
  13. Ancient Dawes Galaxy (only the frame and seatpost are original), Cannondale tourer with roadie gearing and anonymous 531C fixie. I did have a Kona Lavadome but I swapped it for some weed. :blush:

    Hi

    Cheers the bike wasn,t new but I had spent an hour tarting it up.

    My tip for cleaning is buy some muck off, realise you have just paid 7 quid for some soap, :blush: use the contents and refill it with tesco value car shampoo and water 30/70 works lovely and the value car shampoo is about 50p for enough to fill the muc off squirter half a dozen times.!!!
    Its a bit bling due to wiping it over with some autoglm after the wash.

    I can t claim the last bike was mine , Its a amphibious bike I thought might be useful last month :rolleyes: , there are a few more similar things here,
