I think to stay a member we have to prove that we actually ride bikes - rather than talk about them :D

I must admit thinking of the next project, researching, buying and collecting parts is great fun but surely riding the bike is the end goal - surely :facepalm:

Thats what they are made for :D

I'm in the same boat:

1993 Yo Eddy
1994 Klein Pulse
1997 Ibis Szazbo
1992 Mantis Pro Floater

At least my 1993 RM Hammer is rideable (and I do ride it) :)

2 frames, 1 for sale, the other needs the seatpost removing
2 Dahon folding bikes belonging to my mum & partner, to clean up and sell for them
my mates bike that I have been asked to replace the forks, wheels, brakes to disc from V, shifters etc

Spares
3 spare pairs of wheels and another spare front
5/6 spare tyres
2 x M900 & 1 x M735 RD
1 x M900 & 1 x M736FD
1 x Rock Shox Indy S & Judy XC Long travel forks

2 pairs of bars
4 pairs of grips
2 seatposts
