Sometimes wear is amazingly good.

An excellent customer brings his bike to SPIN at a minimum of once a year for general maintenance, then as often as necessary to fix or replace whatever has worn out in between services. Here's a fantastic picture of his bottle cage. The entire surface of the cage has been machined or ground off from literally thousands of uses and tens of thousands of miles of vibration and gentle constant wear. So, how is the wear good? The wear is an indication of enormous amounts of time riding, reflecting, exercising and stress relieving. Beautiful.
