That! I think before Shimano moved the shift cables under the bar tape to make them more aero, things used to be better (Tiagra 4600, 105 5500, etc) and if you're using downtube or bar end shifters,...

Also cross country + trip of 4500 miles in three months.
The middle month was +100 mile days with few days off, so well over 2,000 miles.
In modern times, looks like about 500.
