Whenever I get bored and want to move onto something new. My last bike lasted me 6 months
Have my Proflex going on about six years now? It was my first "real" bike, made in '98 but I bought it still new never used around 2001-2002?
Going on 7 years (I think) with the same frame. The wheels, fork, brakes, and drivetrain (excluding the front deraileur) are all less than two years old.

I've had my bike for almost 2 years and it'll probably have to last until I break it. Which hopefully will be at least a couple of years off.
edit: Oh and the other bike I had for a solid 4 months or so before it was stolen while locked with 2 locks. Damn crackheads.
I keep mine for quite a while. I generally keep them at least a few months each. Sometimes up to a year even. Actually, one of my roadies I kept for almost three years, I only rode for about two years though. I kept my Truth for almost two years. I only rode it for one year though. I kept my Superlight for two years as well.
Most bikes I keep and race for one season though.
I got my GT in 94 I think and it is still going strong today. I have been thinking about replacing it but want to make sure I'll ride the new one before dumping money into it
Every bike I've had since '91 has either been stolen, thrown out (broken), or I still have.
If I like the bike, I'll run it till it breaks.
my build (2006 Norco Bigfoot) which will be done next summer, about 3 - 4 years before i replace parts (everything new) my 2007 Norco Katmandu has been running since christmas this past year, should last 5 years, before i switch to another bike, but ill stilll use it to get around.

Built my Fat Chance in '99, and still have it. I've upgraded everything but the Arch Supremes + Speed Dials, and Manitou XS Carbon. Still got the Rhygin too.

1998 Rhygin SS road
On my third summer with my Giant AC and will likely keep it till I
get tired of it. And that's not looking like any time soon.
Purchased a Hardtail back in April just to play around with and
have had a blast with it. It's a lowend HT so I'll ride it till it
breaks, if it breaks, if not, just upgrade it.
Life's too short - Ride Hard
I keep them a long time. (You didn't ask if I get another one and keep the previous bike).
