We used to call it the 30 day tuneup, but we knew they wouldn't be back in 30 days. It has everything to do with how much it's ridden.
We would check over the entire bike. Tighten what came loose, loosen what got tight, check the hubs, BB, and HS. Check the brakes, check the shifting, check the trueness of the wheels. If you do your own work, and keep an eye on all those things anyway, you don't have to have them do it for you.
Then again, if you let them do it, and the something goes kaplooey with the bike later on, they can't tell you that you didn't being it back for it's 30 day tuneup
