Right Sizing

I sold my trusty R800. Although I was a bit sad to see it go I'll reinvest the $$$ in my other bikes and my fleet is down to a more reasonable:

- 2 recumbents
- 2 DF touring bikes
- 1 folder
- 1 beater winter bike

I know to a lot of folks 6 bikes is still pretty excessive. I think 4 bikes would be my ideal number, but for now I'll content myself with 6 and a strict policy of no new bikes unless I get rid of an existing one.

6 sounds fine to me, Vic. I have 2 recumbents, 2df off road/trail, 1 df fixed gear (fun!) Would like a folder, though......

was that my uncle who bought it? I suppose I could just ask him. Cheers.

Hey Jeremy - yes it was your uncle. He was a very nice guy - great to meet him. It is nice to see people stoked about cycling. I hope he enjoys his new ride.

Thanks for turning him on to Rebay.

I'm confused by the count :) Perhaps because either you are forgetting how many bikes you *really* have or you have gotten rid of some without me following along. Is the 1 folder the Tikit or the Dahon?

Vik said...

Good point - folders only count as 0.5 bikes each....hahahaha....=-)

I wonder if they make a Vanilla folder, or am I thinking of the envelope people?
