I only get it out if I plan on being out over 3 hours. I think I worry about going back to gravel roads in Michigan and I want to stay on the upright bike for that. I need to be planning some maintenance projects for this one though. The right hand grop was so badly worn that I put bar tap on it to keep it shifting. There's a bent brake lever, the seat pad needs to be replaced. That stupid mirrow keeps falling down. The water bag is getting really sad and dirty. But it's still fun to get it out for the really long rides.
