I've got a 2003 Trek 5500 and am new to more serious riding.

With the change in technology that just goes on, when will my bike become seriously off the back.

Just curious about if and when it'll become a Peugot and I'll feel the need to upgrade. Maybe the economic answer is never, what if bikes go to 10 lbs (which I think Storck already does)?

It's got a lifetime warranty, will it break before that?

I have a mid 80s Miyata that isn't a beater yet and still makes my heart glad when I ride it. So Pedlfoot you are right....Never!

You've got at least 5 years

I would guess you've got at least 5 years, maybe more, before the new bikes are enough of an improvement to make you want to ditch the Trek.

I'm looking forward to my next new bike - 10lbs, full suspension, antilock disc brakes, continuously variable transmission...

You will probably want something new before your bike is really off the back.
