Mmm I am down to four bikes at the moment. I ) Van nickolas. titanium road bike  ( best bike ) 2) A Rose aliminium road bike with a top of the range group set , bought second hand . I didnít need it , but it was such a bargain it would has been stupid not to buy it , lol . 3) A Ribble winter bike for riding in the wet , mudguards are a good idea sometimes . And last , at the moment 4) A old school mtb, a KHS Montana Comp , it was an entry level racer, no suspension anywhere but it has a lovely double butted steel frame and LX group set . I will never sell it, cost me £600 in 1995 at a time when money was tight and I worked a lot of weekend overtime to be able to buy it. I used to also have at least one other bike on the go at anyone time , as I used to ride to work and if your doing that itís all ways best to have a bike you wouldnít mind being stolen lol. 

Also it has to be said before this thread goes any further the answer to all cycling related questions is  N +1

N+1 is the answer to any kit based sport or pastime. Expecting my next pair of walking shoes to arrive tomorrow or the day after...

The world missed a trick not adopting that Alto, a lighter, cheaper, easier to sail 5oh. I still miss it, and the company of crew of course.

I dare say the Alto was a nice boat but the Osprey (and in smaller numbers the Javelin) pretty much has had that alternative to FiveO niche owned for a long while.

Oh yes also have an Orange Gringo I bought 2nd hand off a mate over 20 yrs ago.

Ha I've still got a Gringo, paying extortionate storage costs for it amongst other kids stuff, why do we hang onto this stuff. She's never going to use it again, nor am I, what is it with hording old sh*t?

Memories, probably or too much bother to deal with it.
Got a GTi drive, forgot about it till you mentioned stored tat, never liked it, probably done about 50 miles from new.
