How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

I'll go 1st. I believe 41 bikes. An average complete "build" runs me on the average of $750.

Wow no wonder I'm running out of money ! Time to go back to the printing press !

I think it's time to call the psychiatrist ! I beleive I have an obsessive compulsive disorder.

How about you ?

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

I got completely sideways on the 20inch BMX bike thing.
came to these sites to get rid of old bikes so I'd just have one left and ended up with too danged many somehow.
I've been giving bikes to friends and family as quickly as I can find a recipient for them.
I'm down to 1 complete, and 3 projects that I'm going to build and send off somewhere.

And this is the selection I'm forcing myself to stick with for 20in bikes. gotta draw the personal line somewhere, eh?

3 complete keepers(always changing a part here and there ). 1 project in the works. 2 riders for my kids. Shelves full of parts.
Around a million dollars I guess. hmm

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

Probably 30 or so complete... and a crapload of parts everywhere... I don't count them... I also don't keep track of what I've spent. As long as the bills are paid it's all good.

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

I have two bikes for myself, two bikes for my son, two bikes for sale, and one I am almost done building for the wife.

Mine:
1988 GT Ricochet Trials 20"
2007 DK Charger 24"

Son:

2000 GT mini - totally custom 20"

for sale:
200? SE Assassin X-pert 20"
2003 SE Quad 14mm dropouts 20"

Wife
I only have to connect the gear changer on her 3 speed hub but what it is:
1999 Mongoose Menace 24"
Fresh white powder coat
FMF cranks/chainring (43t)
Shimano Nexus 3 speed rear hub (19 tooth cog - thats why it gets the 43t)
Vintage Pink Mongoose decals
Fly bikes pink bar ends
vintage hot pink brake cable housing
Purple Haro bars (non-cruiser)
Paul's Love lever and Moto brake (black)
FMF Team hollow ti-railed seat black/silver

DK seat clamp w/Pacman + ghosts - odd rust color, only size I could find to fit
Odyssey Trialmix purple/black pedals
purple valve caps
black grips
holy roller tires front and back are both 1.85 which made it very tight in the rear triangle!
SE rims and front hub
american to euro bb adaptor

And, I don't think she'll like it.

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

I have too many bikes and have spent too much on them!!!!!!!

I have actually got rid of most of my spare stuff and most of my projects too sad
now I have:

1989 dyno compe
1992 gt pft
1987 haro master
1994 gt 24'
199? gt zaskar mtb
and a unicycle with old mid school parts

all in all over the last few years I might have 3500- 4000 in everything
including all the stuff I have since let go and all the powdercoat jobs  the numbers above reflect every thing
I have since got a return on some of that expense due to selling off a few bikes I had here.


We have probably met at some bike event.

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

about 15 as of this very second. can always have one or five more.  if i knew how much i spent i would be a mathemetition or some sort of accountant.   how can you compare the awsomeness of a bike to stupid money????  if i had money i would probably waste it on bill's, fine's, loan's, etc. MORE BIKES!!!!

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

Parts to (almost) build up two bikes, plus a spare part here & there.
I just worked it out, approx £2300 not including postage, so probably £2500 (about $3700 at today's exchange rate).
Scary, I'd have guessed about £1000 before working it out.

Would I make my money back? Maybe if all parts sold seperately, but the £ is worth less nowadays so maybe not in real terms plus some items are limited appeal.

Re: How many bikes do you have ? How much have you spent ?

In the Winter time the inventory is on the low side, but here is the pile that I have right now, I'm too lazy to count 'em as they are hooked together like a bunch of unwanted clotheshangers. I sell about 300 bikes a year during the riding season so the Mrs. doesn't say much about the ones I keep. Cheers
