Which bike to ride today?

I now have three working bikes. A brand new Kona Eighty-Eight cruiser which is only one week old, a new to me Trek 3700 that I just bought off Craigslist yesterday which runs perfectly and is a joy to ride, or my '99 Trek Y3 that is dirty and needs a serious tune up. It is supposed to be snowy and possibly nasty outside. Should I ride the Kona or save it for those special rides since it is new? Should I take the 3700 since it is such a joy but I like it because it's clean? Should I take the Y3 since it is in need of repair? I don't know which one but I am thinking about the Kona since it has fenders.
