How many bikes do you own?

“How many bikes do you own?” It’s a common question that will crop up in any conversation between cyclists.

But what is the average number of bikes owned by the readers of Bikemagic? We put it to the 1,128 members of the Bikemagic Facebook page and following a positive response, it seems the average number of bikes owned is two.

That’s very closely followed by three, with many admitting to owning a combination of hardtails and full suspension bikes with many also hiding a road bicycle in their collection. A large number also counted four and five bikes in their sheds.

How many bikes do you own? The poll is still active here so you’re your say here.
