How long will a cycle "last" w/o fish?

I got help with my own situation, but I am still curious if anybody knows.

Once an aquarium has cycled (i.e. ammonia and nitrite have spiked and then returned to 0ppm, while nitrate continues to rise) - how long will this balance last without the addition of new ammonia (i.e. fish)?

Anybody know the answer?
