    One roadie and one hardtail MTB here. Tried the one-bike-only thing for a while, but it gets boring with just one kind of riding available to you.

    If I'm going to get another bike, it'll be a crappy beater bike for local errands etc. (i.e. something with a frame I can actually attach a rack to :p )

    I heard that the number of bikes you should own is the current number of bikes that you have +1. Amen to that!!!

    I also have two bikes...

    2001 Cannondale R800 road

    Since relocating to the SF Bay Area a few years back I've taken to the roadie end of the spectrum, and at some point expect to part with the Trek for a second road bike

    I have one Bianchi road bike (smashed right now) and an undersized, beaten, tank of a Schwinn Moab '94-ish with a rusted immobile front suspension fork, a shot headset, and a beyond measurement stretched chain on a shot drivetrain. The latter is my winter commuter/tank bike, it is now my only bike, the other was smashed from my grasp a few weeks ago by a negligent driver's swift door. It is now in peices on my floor, with weeks and possibly months before I will even receive the money to go and order another 63cm beautiful smooth joyous road machine to propell me along at invigorating speeds seemingly free from all responsibility... If anyone has a spare drivetrain and wheelset, I may be able to bend the frame into alignment, I am interested in buying them, I am Chicago, Illinois.
