5/11. Would have been 4, but took the Saracen out for a spin today with my son on the back/bike seat and happy to say it works so one more to add to the working tally. Soon to be 6 out of 11 as the Raleigh should be finished very soon. The rest may languish as projects for some time though - no rush is there?

All of them. No point in owning them otherwise.

Four out of six at the moment, GT Bravado, Orange Clockwork, Dawes Stratos, and Raleigh Chopper all rideable (the Chopper needs tyres and a full bearing service though), Zaskar is stripped for a rebuild/upgrade as is the Club Roost, rest are frames that may or may not get built (RTS is sold though so i should update my sig)

Just realised my only rideable MTB's at the moment have rigid forks and Canti's :lol:

Something like 7 bikes and 0.9 are fully working.

Depends how you look at it.

3 out of 5 here. Number 4 is a spare Sbike frame in case my 503 develops a crack. Number 5 is another Sbike frame, but I'm not convinced I'll be able to turn that into a rideable bike. So it's 3 out of 3 in my book.

However as for moderns ... 0 out of 1 right now. Bad rear shock prevents me from riding. That being said, it is rideable, it just isn't pleasant to ride.

80% of the bikes in my garage are rideable and are ridden. The 20% that are not rideable are just frames, with one exception which is a trials bike that is in bits.

There is one more frame, but as that's at Argos being repaired and painted at the moment I don't think that counts..... yet.
