So these are the bikes I currently have in my garage.  Not all of them are mine.  And my DH bike is in getting the fork fixed.  I think I may have an obsession with bikes...  Confused

yes' date=' but which one's the fav??[/quote']

 

LOL, that's a toughie.

 

I love the Da Bomb Xlr8r (the DJ) (Cheetah spots).  She is quick and mucho flickable, but she's not very forgiving.  The Da Bomb Cheery Bomb (Black & Gold) is also mucho flickable, but not as quick and responsive as the DJ.  They are both awesome when you don't have to climb.

 

The Yeti AS-X is awesome in the Alps.  Going for 2 weeks in August.  7 inches of get out of jail free.  (But the frame is cracked, so I have ordered a 303r-dh)

 

The Cove is new, so the jury is still out on her.  But I must say, if you have been considering getting a Gravity Dropper Seatpost, get it.  I have been toying with the idea for about 2 years and I finally got one.  They are awesome if you like descending but have to pedal to the top.

 

For getting fit, the Look 486 is brilliant, and although she is 5 years old, I think she shows up the new bikes for looks.

 

The Tomac is my missus' bike.  Full susser and fookin light.  I have not officially weighed her, but I guess she may be close to 10kg.

 

I guess I love them all.  They are all for different kinds of rides.

LOL, ironically I agree, but you can't deny the ease of training with a skinny wheel bike.  ride and no wash.  But the real fun is on the weekend when you won't find me wearing lycra.

WOW!!!!!

 

My sentiment exactly, you need a different bike for every type of riding, they all have their own benifits.

 

I do LOVE your collection, except for those gay things with curly handlebars, they burn those at the 24h, Im sure they would appreciate the donation LOL

 

I just need to get myself a trail bike now, pretty much like your Cove, Very Hot

Every proper cyclist should have the following:

 

1 x road bike on an IDT, chromoly steel.

1 x road bike for training (your old racing bike)

1 x road bike for racing

1 x MTB hard tail (unless you've sold it for the DS)

1 x MTB DS for training

1 x MTB DS for racing.

 

That makes 6 bikes.

 

Repeat for each member of the family.

there is never an excuse for owning more than 1 road bike, all you can do is ride.

MTB on the other hand needs a bike for every occasion, such as;

- Trials

- DJ

- DH

- Trail 4/5"

- DS for XC if you have to, but the trail bike will work fine.

 

Now thats a list to dream of
