With Brooks saddle, cross steel frame geometry and big, 35c tires I get a smooth ride over rough pavement, good for long rides. Fenders, bag, blinkie and LED light this is my preferred ride for group rides, medium long training and errands in town.
I have about the same miles fixed-ss. Time to go back to fixed for winter.
I like the reflective tire stripes.
Axel nuts are rusted from last winters salt. I don't wash my bikes too often. I broke 3 spokes. Since my bike shop warranty replaced wheel, no problems.
