Bikes

As every cyclist knows you can never have too many bikes. I am no different and live by the  x=n+1  rule. I love every type of cycling which means I “need” quite a lot of bikes. I’m a pretty crappy mechanic but I know enough to put together a bike which is very dangerous indeed. This coupled with my slight (massive) addiction to eBay means that my fleet is always growing and evolving.

Here are some of the bikes currently in my fleet, not all of them are build up at the same time but when they are they get ridden loads.  You can probably see that the Troll is a pretty good workhorse, there are so many different options.
