    Bianchi C2C 928 Carbon 105 10 speed Compact 2008 Road Bike

    Which is getting fitted properly shortly and having some tri-bars added... will probably race it this season and then replace at the end of the year (or at least upgrade lots of bits)

    Blimey! All these 3, 4 and 5 bike people! Please allow me to bring the quality down a notch:

    Road, Race, Training and 40-mile commute: Halfords Carrera Valour w. Shimano R500 wheels and Profile Design Tri-Bars. Soon to have Planet-X carbon forks added.

    Weekends, Off-Road etc: GT XC2 - Hardtail.

    I love the Carrera. It has been totally reliable, although I wouldn't take it back to Halfords for servicing - I do it myself. Could possibly do with a bigger gear on the Truvativ Compact set on the front, as a realistic cadence only gets you to about 45kph. Mind you... she hits 70kph at one point on the commute home :-)

    Hey TTXPro... I've started another thread about having integrated tri bars but keeping the STI type shifters, i.e. shifters on the horns rather than the tri-bars. I reckon it would be a great idea for beginners who want the STI close to hand when climbing, but use the tri-bars on the flat. Make that an option on your new bike designs and you're onto a winner, I reckon. Commision please.

    I Have a Guess RB1 with quiet a few upgraded bits, like 105 and lots fo carbon components, and Dalkiia carbon wheels.

    Also a Specialised rockhopper pro MTB.

    Both are great bikes

    You know what I want?..... a trainer tire that slips on over the exsisting one so I dont have to sod about with two wheels / cassets etc. - actually perhaps a trainer that runs on the rims rather than the tires would be best. - je suis genious!

    I used a very reliable and recommended Trek 1000 with tri bars for three years and then got an Equinox 9 for IMUK last year. They're great bikes and they stay indoors in the hall even if it does disturb the domestic bliss.

    I' a bikeophile or in other words have a bike problem. This year a Corima/full Campag. Record equipped Cervelo P3C. I also own 9 other bikes each one a thing of rare beauty & lightness and to be honest I'm on the verge of ordering another ; Super Six, Fascenario or R3 SL. They pay me too much!

    new to this game so i'm a one bike man !!

    trek 1.2 for training and eventually competing.

    I have been using a Trek 1500, since I started Tri's in 2004. I tend to train, on a Gary Fisher MTB in winter.

    I am thinking about buying a new road bike (interest free credit) at around £1400. My Trek, is a triple, because that is what I was advised to get, for the hilly terrain up north. Most people I see up north and a traithlons further south are using doubles.

    Would I struggle, changing to a double ?

    First off can I say that you can NEVER have too many bikes!! I have three and covet at least another three.

    For tri- Scott CR1 carbon with Shimano 110- went for better frame and cheaper running gear- always possible to upgrade later. Have detachable profile aero bars and bottle holder. Put on training tyre for the turbo- would love to have a cheapo for the turbo- save changing tyres

    Thorn EXP touring bike with Rohloff hub- commuting and long distance touring

    Diamondback Voyager- ancient old hardtail- more of a truck than MTB- hence the coveting of new MTB

    Any donations greatly received[:D]
