Bike mania

OK, I admit it I have a problem. My hobby is out of control. It all started with me wanting to build the fixed gear. The idea being that I would store that bike in D.'s basement for when we visited. Well with that being the case L. would need a bike too. I found a free one on Craigslist for her. I them realized how fun it would be to have bikes to ride around the towns we visited on the cruise so I found some cheap folding bikes for that. L.'s folding bike only had 16 inch wheels and it was slow so I wanted to test if slightly larger wheels would help. I bought a child's bike with 20" wheels for $10 to test it. Both of us were disappointed with the folding bike and realized that they would not do what we needed them to so we decided to return them and bought some different, better, and more expensive folding bikes. If you add in the bikes that we already owned that means we had 9 bikes total in the garage. Entirely to many bikes for two people. Of course we returned two of the folding bikes, but still. So now I have a "stable" of bikes and I need to figure out how to store some of them, and get rid of the rest.
