I clean/lube my chain at least every 2 weeks. Every week if it's wet. (Just finished actually.)
Replace tires as they wear out (you can see the rubber gone down the middle...looks like the tire's splitting in half). Been averaging probably about 7 tires a year (5-rear, 2-front) or so.
Overall clean the bike when I clean/lube the chain (don't forget to clean the rims after degreasing the chain!)
True wheels as I see them out of true.
Replace the chain 3-4 times a year (I rode 9,000+ miles last year).
Replace the sprockets/cassette once a year if necessary.
So far, I've been going through one set of pedals per year as well.
Replace handlebar tape as needed.
Replace derailleur cables twice per year, brake cables once.
Replace brake pads 2-3 times per year. Usually before a target event.
Replace cleats 2-3 times a year after checking for wear.
Golly...this is an expensive sport
