My father, who in his mind has been dying for 21 years now, likes to tease salesmen about "lifetime" warranties.

"I don't have that long to go. Don't you have anything longer, like ten or twenty years, so I don't have to worry about my wife?"

or

"It must be pretty shoddy if it's only going to last a year or two."

George, of all the things your executor will have to deal with, a nice bike and some good kit is probably the least of the concerns. As for good kit, you need to be buried in something, right?
