I take the same approach as with my vintage wife.

Having said that, I broke my 1987 Bianchi frame riding it "too hard" in 1988, so I am on a second frame, and weigh about 20 lbs more.

I think it is unlikely you will do it any damage unless it is defective, or you often become airborne.

I dented the top tube of my (1981) Miyata 1000, within a year of owning it. (It got stolen in 1989).
