Haven't had much seat time after I broke my leg/ankle on my Giant almost 9 months ago.

I have a few bikes, but this one is still my favorite. Redline Monocog Flight 29er.

Dahon Mu SL 2009 and Brompton M3L 2010
And I wanted to get a non-folding minivelo, but perhaps it's better to get an E-M5 or something similar first!

EDIT: M3L is actually 2010 rather than 2011..

I have two custom Spectrum ti road frames, one a basic fast road bike design, the other a more laid back light touring, rough stuff geometry with clearance for fatter tires and fenders and built with S&S couplers so it all comes apart and stows in a large suitcase for travel. These are incredible frames built up with my own eclectic mix of parts and the culmination of many years of high mileage riding. I don't ride enough to do them justice these days, but I still love them when I do. I also have a Rivendell Bleriot built up as a town bike, with a rack, basket, fenders, and swept back bars. And I have a Brompton that I used to take into the city on the train, but don't have that much use for anymore. It's way too cool and handy at times just to stick in the trunk of the car to sell. I love gadgets and the Brompton is the ultimate cycling gadget. I also have an old Bridgestone RB1 frame that used to be my fixed gear bike but I haven't ridden fixed in a couple of years and now it seems to be permanently attached to a trainer in my basement for trying not to go totally to seed over the winter.

I uses to be a hard core rider (4-6,000 miles per year, lots of centuries, tours, etc) and I had a LOT of bikes and frames in various states of function and build. Now I'm a very casual rider but I still have a fair amount of gear to show from my big-mile days.

Road bike: Scott CR1 carbon. We do about 200kms per week.

My old wheeler mountain bike still goes, but is due for an upgrade.

I still have the bike I did all my touring on, but she's retired.

My ride for commuting (every day) and general tooling around is a 2006 Specialized Crossroads. Not pretty, but a great bike. And very dirty on top of the matt black paint job... No pic cos I'm out with the car and no camera.

My "good" bike isn't very interesting, although I enjoy riding it (2005 Specialized Rockhopper). My town bike is a bit more unusual, an old Muddy Fox Courier that I converted to single speed:

I've had this for about 15 years after someone discarded it by throwing it over my yard wall - a cheap pair of new forks and some salvaged wheels and it was back on the road again.

An Avanti Corsa Team road bike (purchased when it was superseded so about half-price) and an MTB from Anaconda. Will post pics tomorrow.
Above description probably doesn't make any sense to people outside of Aus/NZ!

After years on a Giant Stonebreaker mountain bike used for both every day traffic and camping trips, I switched to a sturdy Sparta every-day bike. Simple, no maintenance to speak of, and it does the job.

A 2009 green Surly LHT outfitted as a tourer (Brooks Flyer, wider bars, steel fenders, rear rack, three bottle cages), and a so-so quality aluminum cyclocross for 'road' use. I'm looking hard at wooden bike frames, even pondering making one...
