You people keep talking about frame replacement as being equivalent to bike replacement.
That's not necessarily so.
My MTB is on to its third frame (and 4th fork) since 1995, as well as many and various replacements of other parts. Both frame replacements have been pretty radical changes to the bike, but in both cases I've carried some parts over from the old build so it continues the lineage of my old bike (the first replacement was just a frame and fork, dressed in all my old hardware: the second was, in honesty, a new bike... but I swapped my old fork, bar, bar-ends, stem, saddle and pedals in before riding it). I'm still using the same bar-ends that came on my 1995 bike, so it _must_ be the same bike
