While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned.
This equation may also be re-written as s‑1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.
Maybe you’re single… good for you. But if you’re not, you realize the importance of
s-1. Each new bike purchase must be painstakingly calculated with no margin for error. Screw it up and you’ll be forced to covet your friend’s new carbon-tubeless-1x12-29er whip for years to come!
