How long do you keep a road bike?

Road Cycling 的t is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I can't tell you how long I will keep a bike before selling it. I've never sold one.
I still have my 1962 (ish) Esterman Sprint bike, 1971 Carlton Professional, 1971 Colnago, and 1971 Pogliaghi.
OK I have given away some ordinary newer bikes, but the pretty stuff, never.
