I'd argue the point that there are very few heavily ridden steel bikes from the 70s, 80s, 90s or even 00s that are still being ridden at the same rate. Bikes last for decades hanging in a garage...

I kicked up a rock on a descent a few weeks ago that, near as I can tell, popped around my cranks, hit my front wheel and then shot into my shin so hard I thought it caused a fracture. Had...
