Hello! I have noticed that a lot of people on the forum, particularly the commuter one, own multiple bikes and one of them is always the designated beater. Sometimes this beater is also the commuter, especially for folks who can't bring the bike into their offices/school classrooms.
I am one of such people-- I have a nice touring bike and a beater. I commute on the beater, because I don't have anywhere but outside to store it, and I don't want my nice bike stolen. I also sometimes get groceries on the beater, because when I ride my touring bike to the grocery store I keep thinking if it's still there. I love riding on my nice bike, but I realized that even with long rides on weekends, my beater still gets more miles.
Does this happen to anyone else?
