Depends what you do to a bike, or even with it. How many "Good" Mountain bike frames have you seen severely bent in the magazines, that "just broke as I was riding along". You land wrongly just one too often, or without skill, and any frame will/could sustain Damage.
That doesn't condone the Manufacturers out there that make and sell crap mountain bikes, But it does depend on how you treat any quality of mountain bike, as to how long it will last
