Should I feel guilty? I just bought my forth road bike. I now have a Specialized Sequoia for winter riding, Felt B2 Time Trial Bike, Litespeed for road races, and my newest a Specialized Tarmac which is my first bike with a full carbon frame.
'main road bike'-scott cr1pro
'winter trainer' -giant fcr+drop bars+clip on mudguards
just added a mtb: specialized stumpjumper ht - mainly to use on traffic dodging commute routes that would defeat road bike wheels. I enjoy the contrast to a road bike.
That'll do for the timebeing, but I agree with the 'N+1' formula mentioned elsewhere.
My good steel bike: Cervelo Superprodigy with 9sp Dura-Ace
My good alu bike: Cinelli Proxima with 9sp Dura-Ace
My 'everyday, all weather' bike: some Taiwanese Dedacciai 7003 thing
My good commuter: locally made 531 with 8sp Shimano
And 2 other hunks of junk worth about 200 bucks each, that I ride to places to lock up.
I have 4 road bikes, 2 mtn bikes, and 6 bmx bikes.
My road bikes are: 2003 Cervelo Soloist Team all Dura Ace with HED 3's, 2005 Kestrel Talon all Ultegra 9 Eurus wheels, stock 2002 Giant TCR Aero 2, stock 2004.5 Giant OCR 1 with Jandd Commuter panniers for commuting to hard to park at areas in the city.
