I pump up the tires each ride and then do a little spin around the parking lot to be sure nothing is grossly wrong. I also do a general visual inspection while putting it back on the car rack... Other than that, I clean the chain about every 75 miles (usually 3-4 rides) and do a closer inspection of everything at that time. (I know that's fairly frequent to clean a chain -- but riding on the crushed limestone trails gets it pretty gunky pretty quickly)
