That's true for me as well. The Cypress sees a lot
less miles these days than does the LHT. Now it gets used mostly for errands, and rides when it's wet out. Some months it might see 50 miles, other months nothing at all.
The Cypress was an important step in my getting into shape and re-learning how to ride. The bike was flexible enough to let me explore a lot of different kinds of riding ... roads, gravel, overnights, inn-to-inn trips, and my first 50+ mile ride since the turn of the century.
