I ride stuff until either it explodes or I get the desire to replace it....longest I've had one bike is probably 5 or 6 years.....easily.... my oldest bike is a 98 model GT Timberline MTB.... but my oldest bmx frame probably lasted me 3 years.....and as far as I know is still going whereever it is....its just the parts that get worn down and need replacement

I have a tendancy to ride the crap out of my bike. I usually get a new bike every 1 or 2 years. I do heavy modifying on my bikes. I buy light, cheap frames with junk pieces and buy replacement parts.

i basically ride my stuff till it breaks or falls apart. my last frame was a specialized vegas, and it was too short, and not even made of 4130, so when i ran into a S&M dirtbike classic for free, i jumped all over it. been riding that for about 6 mo now, and prolly will ride it til it falls apart.
