Normal person... Um, let me rephrase that :-) Person not interested in racing, so out goes #2. I live in a place where you can generally leave your bike outside (but locked, of course), and it will still be there when I get back, so combine 3 & 4, and we get two bikes :-)

Most of the time I could get by with one, as I did when I lived in Europe - a not very aggressive mountain bike with high enough gearing for roads.
