I've had five rides this week. Since each of the five rides was quite different from the other four, it reasonably follows, sort of, that I'd logically use five different bikes.
Please tell me that...mlbd

these aren't 5 different road bikes!! how could you possibly have 5 different road bikes that are best for 5 different kinds of riding? I can think of three: a flat course bike, a climber, and a TT bike. Add in a cross bike, and a mountain bike or two and I'm with you.
It's not that hard......Dave Hickey

1. Tandem ride with my wife and another tandem couple.
2. Go-fast bike, a Quantum Race, by myself.
3. The beater bike, a reworked Marin mountain bike. I ran errands on Tuesday.
4. The retro-grouch bike, a reworked Bridgestone RB-2. This was an extremely social ride with a group who call themselves "The Turtles." (I'm not making this up.) I found out there are also "Turbo Turtles" who ride a little faster.
5. The mountain bike. I hadn't mountain biked in over a year. It's good that I went out by myself so there was no one to laugh at me.
