In order of most to least replaced.

I replace brake pads the most.
Tires and tubes when they need it.
Bar tape, cables, housings as needed.
Chain, rings, cassette when worn.
Wheel and headset bearings when needed.
Majour components rarely. I've got over 9000 miles in under 2 years on my Cross Check. The crank is just starting to crap out on me, but it's a serious low-end component to start with and I'm surprised that an FSA Vero/RPM lasted this long under me. I've replaced the bottom bracket once. The headset will be next, just to upgrade; not because this one is worn. My pedals are Shimano M545's that I bought back in college in the early 90s.
