The OP is being silly. It is a bike and it is meant to be ridden.

If he cannot enjoy riding his bike for fear that the bike may be somehow “hurt,” then he should pursue another activity.

I can now afford nice bikes, but when back in the day, when all I had to ride was a Sears Free Spirit, I rode it hard and thoroughly enjoyed being out on the road with it.

OP, you are a young guy. I am old enough to be your Dad, maybe even Grandpa. My advise to you is that material objects, and that includes bikes, have value only because of the enjoyment they bring to the user.

Enjoy your bike.
