I would not hesitate to jump on this bike and ride it cross-country today, but the normal age-related wear & tear that eventually sneaks up on you, has me looking into smaller and lighter bikes these days. I am the original owner and bought it new in the Fall of 2012. This is no garage queen, but it has been well-maintained throughout its life. The valves have been recently adjusted just before the Black Hills trip. Current tires are Shinko 705 with about 5,000 miles on them.
