    I thnk acronyms work best when you just 'know' what they mean. I got DSYJDGAF without explanation.

    I don't think anyone on here will say that 3 is too many bikes. I would hazard a guess that most people on this forum have more than one, many have more than 2, a few with more than 3 and many, many will have enough bits to be able cobble together another if all LBSs closed down and Halfrauds was the only other option.

    I have 2.5 bikes, (building a fixie) as well as spare brakes, brake levers, wheels, cranks, chainrings, axles, spindles, saddles, pedals, handlebars, chains...
    FCN 3: Raleigh Record Ace fixie-to be resurrected sometime in the future
    FCN 4: Planet X Schmaffenschmack 2- workhorse
    FCN 9: B Twin Vitamin - winter commuter/loan bike for trainees

    I'm hungry. I'm always hungry!
  • Yup, I worked it out in a couple of seconds. Drivers often don't see cyclists as road-users, merely as obstacles. I see motorists look through and around me and simply not registering that I'm there! That's why I developed my 'I see you' look, so that they become aware that I am actually a living being and taking note of and being affected by their actions.
