Almost all "lifetime" warranties are the service life of the product not the purchaser's lifetime or as long as you own it. Warranties are only for manufacturing defects in any case and those usually present themselves in the first few years of use so a "lifetime" warranty and a 3-5 year warranty are pretty much the same thing. A company would investigate how the bike was used and what the problem is as they determine if/how the warranty applies.  Warranties are really just a rough guide to what will happen if you have a post-sale problem. Nothing stops a company from providing free help post-warranty and in a lot of cases a company can deny a warranty if they really are not motivated to help a particular person.  I'm mostly interested in the type of company I am buying products from than the exact wording of their warranty. Being polite and having reasonable expectations I've never been denied help even when my issue was not, strictly speaking, covered by a warranty.
