Oh, I agree completely. It's been a bad year, with three major issues, all of which are now resolved. I don't abuse this bike, but I ride it on a daily basis and, after a while, you have to expect things to go wrong. There have been neither chronic problems nor catastrophic failures and, all in all, I still consider the bike to be very reliable.
