I've ridden my Univega over 2500 miles since last November, and have yet to have it break down. The headset has come a bit loose once or twice (you know, knocking when you brake, etc), the chain has been replaced, and I swapped out the 20 year old tires (that I put 1,000 miles on), but it's never left me stranded, it's never gotten a flat (knock on wood), and it's never been so injured that I couldn't load it with 20 lbs of paperwork and clothes, shift through all of the gears, or stop reliably.
