    I'm getting this all wrong at the moment...

    Have taken the Minxy apart and am selling in bits, and sold my beautiful (but slightly too small for me) Juliana last night *sob* !!

    Am moving house shortly so needed a bit of short term 'cash re-allocation' - but am REALLY looking forward to the bike spending spree in a few months when everything has settled down 8)

    I'm beginning to find out that 2 bikes is a tad excessive for me, convenient while I'm at uni but after I graduate lord know what I'll do with the 456, haven't ridden it for weeks but then given the choice unless its proper shitty out I'm always inclined to take the HD out. The fleet will be slimmed down once I graduate for sure, can't really think of a reason to justify two bikes that are so similar.

    I have 3. Considering a 4th - for riding at the skate park and pump track with my little lad. So perhaps I could argue the 4th bike is technically for my son? :mrgreen:
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    I have one with pedals, four with engines (five if you ask the DVLA). Want another with pedals though.

    I found that when I had the 2, I always reached for the bouncy one of the pair, so it didnt make much sense, thats why I built Amy, who I love dearly and does everything I need from a mountain bike, and also last year doubled up as a pretty competent road bike. I do have other bikes for other uses now though, road, poncing about looking retro and foldable to fit in boot of car, but.....I do have too many bikes, well one too many to be fair

    I know that feeling - I literally had to peel myself away from Ebay last night... Lots of bikes are far too tempting :shock:

    Only 1 at the moment (the Soul).
    There is a SC Blur LTc frame on its way this week though, so the magic number will be two soon, but i have a suspicion that i wont ride the Soul much once the Blur is built, so i'm thinking of selling off the frame and forks and building a Roadrat up with 'cross tires, possibly the perfect 'other' bike? (although, saying that, i would love to keep the HT and have the Roadrat as well, have to see how much the FS build stings me first!). N+1 FTW!
    MTB's, SC Blur LTc & Cotic Soul (26" definitely aint dead!).

    Slimmed down to four. Inbred, 456, PX Team AL and PX Pro Carbon. Considering selling the Inbred as I'm finding the 456 more fun but then I'd have two road bikes and 1 off road which would be wrong. Wouldn't mind a full sus as now as after various injuries I'm creaking and need a more comfortable rear end. fnar.
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    Who are you calling inbred?

    I've got 3 (see sig) plus one for the ankle biter but it's garage storage capcity that's the limiting factor. Ideally would like 2 more ( DH bike and a carbon roadie but that will be tricky unless I start piling them against each other! Might persuade junior she doesn't like bikes any more :)

    I've got a shed full ,a garage full and some bits kicking about to build some more up.

    But since getting the Intense I only use that and the DH bike.

    Must make more of an effort to sell
    I'm going to blow the bank on a new build ( within reason ) NOW DONE!!
