Bike Maintenance or How Many Bikes are TOO Many

When you do this a lot (and it looks much drier than it really was), then you or someone really NICE!!!! has to clean your bike afterwards:

And while you are at it; the Roadie needed some cleaning as well....

And my Race Bike, the Intense had been neglected. Martin actually "just" cleaned the chain, because, I hate to do that and I did the rest (the same with the Cannondale)

If you look closely, you can see, my Cannondale and the Intense out for drying, plus Martins two bikes: his 29er Gary Fisher and his Road, that makes how many bikes? I am not good at math but I know that there are more:) (Our Polo Bikes, my Blur, Martin's Stumpjumper,...)

I love all my bikes until it comes to cleaning time, than I think there are WAY too many chains to clean, pedals to scrub and frames to polish, but a well maintained bike is so grateful and it keeps them rolling for years to come....

I have to give Martin a lot of credit for keeping our bikes in TOP shape!!!
But other than the cleaning part, I am with you, there is a bike for every occasion:)

Nothings better than al clean bike. I wish I was as good about cleaning my car as I am about cleaning my bike.
