The ideal number of , I've been told, is N+1. With N being the number of bikes your already own.

My next won't really be a bike though. Planning on getting a compact e-cargo . Not saying I'll buy one this year, or next year. But the next* purchase will* be a .

I hope I resist the temptation of getting another 2-wheeled ride. 🙏 Well, ya never know. 🤷‍♀️

😁

@evelyn Do you know that those adult trikes are marketed as mobility scooters, especially for the elderly in Japan?

Other people can still use them, of course.

@gowin
Nope. Mobility scooters are different. ☝️ Generally speaking, they don't have pedals. You don't expect PWDs to pedal at all.

I've seen a lot of those. We call them Ferraris. 😅 (They're usually glossy red in color.)

@martijn
Not so much. Just thinking ahead. 😁

The car I drive is 24 years old and I keep thinking it'll croak one of these days. And I have no intention of buying a new one. Only way I'll get a new car is of someone else pays for it. 😅

Anyway, an electric cargo trike makes a lot of sense for me and my preferred way of life. 😉

@evelyn I've not been able to justify a second #bicycle but again today I'm wishing I had something to ride while waiting for new inner tubes.

@lopta
I guess if you can't justify, then save your money. 🙃

But if the are very different and are for different purposes (other than just having a second* bike), then I think it's a good idea. 😁

2 mountain bikes. What for? 🤷‍♀️

1 big bike and 1 little foldie in a size that's allowed on public transpo. Makes good sense, me thinks. 😉

@evelyn It's funny you should say that. I was looking this morning at the Citizen Bikes Milan, which I could take to places I wouldn't ordinarily get to ride...

@evelyn ...but for about the same price, I could get a Detroit Bikes Sparrow, which is built more to my scale, weighs 1/3 less and is a bike I've had my eye on for some years.

@lopta
Ooh... Citizen ! For a long time I dreamed of having a Barcelona. 😄🚲 But I can't imagine ordering a bike from overseas. Who knows how much customs here will charge me for bringing that into the country.

I've seen taller/bigger-than-average adults using with 20" wheels. They say it takes a bit getting used to, but they love it.

If you plan on pedaling to the train station, take the train, getting on a bus, pedaling again... 😃👍

@lopta
The Sparrow looks really pretty too. 👍 Single speed looks so neat. No derailleur scarily hanging off the side. 😀
